The borrower will also need 6 months of the mortgage payments (PITI) set aside in an account as reserves, and documentation of the borrower's prior experience managing rental units and/or use of a property management company to oversee the property.
The reserves must be the borrower's own funds and cannot be a gift, or equity in the home.
