FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR KENTUCKY VA MORTGAGE LOANS
What Does Having Basic Entitlement of $36,000 Mean?
The $36,000 does not represent the maximum loan amount you can obtain through the VA Home Loan Program. The figure merely provides evidence to your lender that you have full VA entitlement.
With this entitlement and underwriter approval, you can obtain a loan in an amount up to $417,000; some high cost counties have even higher limits.
I Now Have My COE, What Do I Do Next?
Contact any VA approved lender and start the loan process. Do note that the COE does not guarantee you a VA loan; you still must qualify based upon your income and credit.
How Do I Apply For a Loan?
VA does not do any direct lending, and as such VA does not accept loan applications from veterans. You must contact a VA approved lender in order to apply for a VA loan. For more information about VA loans, visit www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/.
What is the VA Interest Rate?
VA does not establish interest rates or closing costs for VA loans. Rates are negotiable between you and your lender. It is advisable to obtain quotes from at least three different lenders.
What is the Minimum Credit Score Required for a VA loan?
VA has no minimum credit score requirement. However, the lender you choose to do business with may have such a requirement.
What Types of Property Does My COE Cover?
The VA Home Loan program guarantees loans for real property that is to be used by the veteran as a primary residence. The program does not cover vacation homes, vacant land, multiplexes in excess of four units, motorhomes, small business loans, or commercial buildings.
Can I Use My VA Entitlement to Refinance?
Yes. You can refinance any type of loan on your property using your VA entitlement.
Why Does My COE Reflect a Paid-in-Full Loan With No Restoration of Entitlement?
In order for entitlement to be restored, the prior VA loan must be paid in full and the property disposed of. If you no longer own the property, please state as such on your application form 26- 1880 and resubmit. Do note that you can obtain a restoration of entitlement without disposing of the property when the loan is paid in full on a one time basis

It appears that today’s government shutdown has had very little impact on most loan programs so far, with the exception of Kentucky Rural Housing Loans for USDA.The USDA website and GUS are currently unavailable. Their underwriters and the call centers are also not available.Therefore, until further notice, USDA loan applications that have not yet received a firm commitment from Rural Development and have yet to receive a clear to close will not be allowed to close. Until further notice, we will not issue any commitments on USDA applications but will continue to accept USDA applications and will process them as best we can.This situation is very fluid. We will have more guidance as more information becomes available.
