Am I the only one that is confused about this? So beginning July of 2021 they removed the Appendix Q right? Do we still have to do the debt to income ratio qualifying of 43% or do we just have to make a reasonable and good faith determination at or before consumption that the consumer will have a reasonable ability to repay the loan according to the terms?

If you are underwriting to the legacy General QM, then Appendix Q could still apply until October 1 2022 when that QM option sunsets.

Other than that, the 43% DTI limitation is dead. It reverts to reasonable ability.
