 Your condo is not FHA approved
 The LTV is below 80%
 The buyer already has an FHA loan (Unless met
  exceptions indicated in HUD Handbook)
 There is a non-borrowing spouse with a lot of debts
  (FHA requires debts be included in DTI in community
  property states)

  now requires max DTI of 45% (back end). FHA can
  insure up to 45%(front)/55%(back) depending on AUS .

  down-payment requirement and ALL closing costs.
