Marc Demetriou, Branch Manager/Mortgage Consultant of Residential Home Funding Corp. has just completed training and is now a Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP).

Divorce Lending Professionals are residential mortgage professionals specializing in working with divorcing clients and other divorcing professionals such as family law attorneys and financial planners. A Certified Divorce Lending Professional brings the financial knowledge and expertise of a solid understanding of the connection between Divorce and Family Law, IRS Tax Rules and mortgage financing strategies as they all relate to real estate and divorce.

This specific training allows them to help their divorcing clients and their professional divorce teams recognize potential obstacles and opportunities related to real estate and mortgage financing helping to set clients up for success post decree.

For example, most mortgage professionals don’t know that, in some circumstances, support payments (excluding child support) can be considered negative income rather than a liability which helps to reduce debt to income ratios or that the division of equity must be determined in the Homestead section of the divorce settlement agreement in order for a refinance not to be considered a cash out refinance resulting in higher interest rates and tighter loan to value restrictions.

Since divorcing couples comprise a large portion of the real estate market, CDLPs are an important member of the professional divorce team. A CDLP who understands the special problems and laws that govern the dissolution of marriage can be a great asset at a very difficult time to both the divorcing client and the professional divorce team.
