    You'll need to talk to your lender, but the husband's
    credit shouldn't be a condition to the lender making the
    loan to you on the basis of your own credit. Nor should
    your husband be required to be included as a grantee on the
    title deed into you. However, the lender will rightly
    require the husband to be a grantor with you on the deed of
    trust because of Texas' homestead laws. The husband would
    sign "pro-forma only," thereby indicating that the deed of
    trust lien would have priority over his interest in the
    community homestead. The husband would not be required to
    sign the note to the lender. The lender shouldn't have a
    problem with that.
