Kentucky VA Mortgage Refinance Guidelines

  • Borrow up to 100% of the home’s value. Unlike other programs that only allow 80% or 85% of the home’s value.
  • No Income or Asset verification is required. We don’t need your paystubs, w-2’s tax info, or bank statements. Much easier qualifying.
  • No Appraisal is required (unless Discount is being charged to borrower – see below)—-VA does not require a new appraisal. So even if your home has not equity or went down in value, we can go off on old value when doing a rate and term with no cash back.
  • No Credit Qualifying. Meaning we don’t have to repull credit again and check your fico scores. Just verify your last 12 months mortgage history is on time.
  • VA Funding Fee is .50%, much less than the 2 or 3% you pay when you buy the home, If disabled, you will not have to pay the funding fee.
  • Can refinance an investment property as long as you can document it was formerly the borrower’s primary residence
  • At least 6 monthly payments must have been made on the original loan being refinanced; AND
  • The first payment due date of the new loan must be at least 210 days after the first payment due date of the original loan being refinanced
  • A copy of the Note from the previous loan being refinanced must be provided
  • An IRRRL refinancing a Fixed Rate Mortgage into another Fixed Rate Mortgage must result in a rate reduction of at least 0.5%
  • An IRRRL refinancing a Fixed Rate Mortgage into an Adjustable Rate Mortgage must result in a rate reduction of at least 2.0%
  • IRRRLs in which a Discount is being charged to the borrower will now require an Exterior-Only Appraisal to be ordered
  1. If the Discount being charged is 1% or less, the loan will be limited to 100% LTV based on the value of the Exterior-Only Appraisal
  2. If the Discount being charged is more than 1%, the loan will be limited to 90% LTV based on the value of the Exterior-Only Appraisal
  • Loan must current be guaranteed by VA and must be current
  • Closing costs must be recouped within 36 months
  • Proposed P&I payment must be less than current payment unless:
  1. Veteran refinancing ARM to Fixed
  2. Term of IRRL is shorter than existing loan as long as payment does not increase over 20%
  3. Energy efficiency improvements are included in the IRRL

 

Refinancing a Kentucky VA Loan

Kentucky VA loans may be used to replace an existing mortgage, called “refinancing.” A KY VA refinance may be used to reduce an existing interest rate, change loan terms or a combination of both. The most common reason to refinance is to lower the monthly payment. A borrower may take out a KY VA loan then later see that interest rates have fallen and are lower than an existing rate. By refinancing, the borrower can replace the old loan with a new one to obtain the lower rate and subsequent lower mortgage payment.

A refinance can also make sense when changing loan terms such as switching from an adjustable rate mortgage to a fixed rate or adjusting the term of the loan to save on interest charges.
The Streamline

The Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan, or IRRRL is commonly referred to as the Kentucky Mortgage Refinance VA “streamline” refinance program. This is a special VA loan to VA loan refinance that requires very little documentation to obtain an approval. Some of the features of the VA streamline are:

• No appraisal needed

• Income or employment is not verified

• No credit review

• Closing costs may be rolled into the loan amount

As long as you’re reducing your current mortgage payment, not taking any cash out or switching from an adjustable rate mortgage to a fixed rate loan, you may qualify for this unique program and you don’t have to use your existing Kentucky VA lender in order to benefit from the Kentucky VA streamline mortgage.
Cash Out VA loan Refinance

Cash out refinance loans allow the borrower to pull out equity in the home in the form of cash during the course of a refinance. While the VA doesn’t establish a maximum loan amount, most VA lenders do place limits on the loan based upon the current value of the property and the final loan amount. Lenders may limit any cash out loan to 80 or 90 percent of the property’s current value. If taking cash out of your home is needed and you have sufficient equity in your home, it may be better to obtain a home equity loan or refinance into a conventional mortgage.

How to Get Your VA Certificate of Eligibility for a VA Home Loan Approval.

.imagescawskepf1

TIPS FROM VA FOR ORDERING COE OR CERTIFICATE OF ELIGIBILITY
TIP #1: If you don’t have an urgent need (like an impending closing date), or a potentially deal-breaking question or concern please give VA a few business days to process your COE request, before checking on status.
Currently, the majority of our incoming calls relate to Certificate of Eligibility (COE) processing – particularly requests for status updates. While VA’s COE staff is here to help answer your questions about COEs, it is important to note that the staff is currently processingCOE requests in about 4 business days, on average. Despite system enhancements that allow us to provide you instant COEs in over two-thirds of cases, record-setting loan volume means that our COE staff is working as hard as ever to process the remainder as quickly as possible.
TIP #2: Please be sure the “T’s” are crossed and the “I’s” are dotted prior to submission of a COE request. Providing a complete and accurate submission increases the probability that VA can process your request instantaneously.
We sometimes find that COE requests are missing critical pieces of information or that the submitter has forgotten to provide a required form (such as a National Guard member’s NGB-22 or a Reservist’s Points Statement). It may also be helpful to proof the forms you’re uploading to ensure they’re legible and complete. We find that oftentimes, submissions cannot be processed immediately online, only because a key data field or required piece of evidence is illegible, or missing.
Some commonly required (but often omitted) forms are:
  • For Veteran borrowers, the DD214 copy that includes the Character of Service
  • For Reservist borrowers, the Point Statements document, which proves 6 Creditable Years and Character of Service
  • For National Guard borrowers, the Form NGB 22
  • For Active-Duty Servicemember borrowers, the Statement of Service from a commanding officer
 
TIP #3: Please help us help you with your ‘special requests’ regarding COEs.
If your borrower has a special circumstance that requires you to submit a request for more than just a standard COE issuance, it is helpful to provide details about that special circumstance in the “Notes” field of the COE submission page. Our staff can process your full request in an accurate and timely fashion if all the details are easily discernable.
For example, if your borrower is submitting evidence of a name change along with her request for a COE, and you note both requests in the submission, our staff can easily and quickly discern that two actions are required of them and quickly process your request. If that same submission did not note the requested name change, staff may attempt to process only the COE request and initially reject it, due to non-matching information in our system. The “Notes” field can be found in the left-side vertical toolbar on the submission page.
 TIP #4: Please be sure your COE request makes it to the Internet in complete form.
You may be used to other online web forms that allow you to hit “Enter” on your keyboard to navigate through sections of the form or complete a transaction. However, our online COE tool is a bit different. Hitting “Enter” to navigate through the page can result in your incomplete form being submitted to VA. If you hit “Enter” multiple times, we can get multiple incomplete requests for the same COE. Please also note that after you complete the form/process, you should click the “Submit” button in order for the request to be transmitted to our processing system. The “Submit” button can be found at the bottom center of the COE submission page.
 TIP #5: If you’re stuck or have a general question, you may find the answers you need in our web tutorials and guides.
Helpful information can be found at:
  • The Lender’s Tutorial “How to Order a Certificate of Eligibility on the VA Portal” [click here]
  • Information on how to correct your COE submission [click here]
 
TIP #6: If you have issues with the web form or are experiencing other technological issues, the BEST way to report a problem or get help with a problem, is to email the system Help Desk atVIP.VBACO@va.gov rather than call the COE toll-free line.
