Real Estate Home Mortgages/buying a home with daughter with low credit score


I would like to help my daughter purchase a townhouse in Maryland. She has the downpayment and makes 50K a year...Last year her exhusband and her went through a foreclosure due to their breakup..She is attempting to improve her credit by paying off a carloan I am cosigner on but our assumption is that her credit is damaged badly by the foreclosure. The car loan has a small balance which can easily be payed off in full at any time..What options do we have or how would you approach this situation?

She cannot be on a lmortgage  for 7 years if her name was in the mortgage that was foreclosed. You would have to buy it for her and have her document the payments  with a good paper trail and she may be able to refinance it in 4 years after the foreclosure.
