You can find more information and how to prove your eligibility on the VA benefits website. The specific service requirements and time periods can be found here.

Unfortunately, the VA loan cannot be used for ANY type of purchase. Like many federally sponsored programs there are very specific requirements to what can be bought with a VA loan.

As defined by the VA, the loan can be used for five types of homes, all of which must be your personal home. The specific VA wording can be found here.

  1. Buy a home or condominium unit in a VA approved project.
  2. Build a Home.
  3. Simultaneously purchase and improve a home.
  4. Improve a home by installing energy-related features or making energy efficient improvements.
  5. Buy a manufactured home and/or lot.

Multi-plex for a VA loan – The VA allows you to buy a single family, duplex (2 units), triplex (3 units) and a quadplex (4 units). The key is that you have to live in one unit, however, you are still allowed to rent the other unit(s) out.

Eligibility for a VA loan
Once you know that you qualify, the next step is to figure out your eligibility. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as it sounds because it’s based on your location. The lowest total amount is $484,350 for a single family. All the numbers after that are based on location and the number of times the loan has been used. The VA location list to check eligibility can be found here.

Multiple VA Loans
The great thing about the new VA rules is not only are you given a set amount, but you can buy as many houses under the amount of the last local place. You entitlement includes the purchase price AND the funding fee (described below) of your location.

This is the Equation: Current Location Entitlement – Previous Entitlement(s) if you have multiple (Funding Fee included) = amount you have left.

So just because you are “out” in one location in regards to your VA loan eligibility, does not mean you should not have your mortgage broker check your eligibility in the next place you go. It never hurts to ask, you could be missing out on an opportunity!

Financing Above Your VA Loan
The VA loan does allow you to finance above your VA loan amount. The key thing to note is anything above the VA funding amount requires a down payment of 25%. So if you go above your funding amount by 10,000 you will now owe a down payment of $2,500.

VA Funding Fee
The VA funding is the only downside to the VA loan and using it for multiple loans. The VA loan charges a funding fee for all their loans. The rates depends on a couple of different variables so certainly look at this chart to figure out your funding fee.

Waiving of the Funding Fee
If you have a VA disability rating then you should definitely check out this article. I explain all the regulations and how all those fees/other expenses could be waived.

The VA loan is truly an amazing loan. There are so many nuances and great benefits. I highly recommend you find a great mortgage broker who can walk you through all the different possibilities. Did I miss anything regarding the VA loan? What has been your experience?

Kentucky VA Mortgage Changes for Student Loans Guidelines 2017

 
Kentucky VA Mortgage Student Loan Policy  Guideline Changes
VA loans in Kentucky has issued Circular 26-17-02 regarding student loans.  This policy will be effective immediately for all Kentucky VA loans.
How to Calculate a Student Loan Monthly Payment:
If the Veteran or other borrower provides written evidence that the student loan debt will be deferred at least 12 months beyond the date of closing, a monthly payment does not need to be considered.
If a student loan is in repayment or scheduled to begin within 12 months from the date of closing, the lender must consider the anticipated monthly obligation in the loan analysis and utilize the payment established in one of the options below.  Calculate each loan at a rate of 5%of the outstanding balance divided by 12 months.
 (Example: $25,000 student loan balance x 5% = $1,250 divided by 12 months = $104.17 per month is the monthly payment for debt ratio purposes).
  • The lender must use the payment reported on the credit report for each student loan if the reported payment is greater than the threshold payment calculation above, OR
  • If the payment reported on the credit report is less than the threshold payment calculation above, the loan file must contain a statement from the student loan servicer that reflects the actual loan terms and payment information for each student loan.  The statement must be dated within 60 days of the loan closing and may be an electronic copy from the student loan servicer’s website or a printed statement provided by the student loan servicer.  It is the lender’s discretion as to whether the credit report should be supplemented with this information.
1. What are the most popular mortgages you offer?
Why are they so popular?
2. Which type of mortgage plan do you think would
be best for me? Why?
3. Will I have to buy private mortgage insurance?
If so, how much will it cost, and how long will it
be required. (NOTE: Private mortgage insurance
is usually required if your down payment is less than
20%. However, most lenders will let you discontinue
PMI when you’ve acquired a certain amount of equity
by paying down the loan.)
4. Are your rates, terms, and closing costs negotiable?
5. Who will service the loan – your bank or another?
6. What escrow requirements do you have?
7. How long will this loan be in a lock-in period
(in other words, the time that the quoted interest
rate will be honored)? Will I be able to obtain a
lower rate if it drops during this time period?
8. How long will the loan approval process take?
9. How long will it take to close the loan?
10. Are there any charges or penalties
for prepaying the loan?

2019 Kentucky VA LOAN LIMITS

There actually is no max Kentucky VA loan Limits set by VA. However, if you go over the standard VA Max County Loan Limits, in Kentucky this year it is set at $484,500 then you would need to come up with difference in the form of the down payment by taking the Sales price, minus the max va loan limits for County, then take 25% of that for your max loan. The fact is there’s actually no maximum loan amount on a VA loan. What those loan limits represent is how much a qualified military borrower can obtain without making a down payment.

Here’s an example. Let’s say you have full VA loan entitlement and the county in which you’re purchasing has the standard $424,100. The home you want to purchase is $650,000. There’s a $225,900  difference between the two, and one quarter of that is $56,475, which is how much the borrower would need as a down payment.

This is based on your maximum VA entitlement of $36,000  not being used.

2019 KENTUCKY VA LOAN LIMITS
VA has announced loan limit changes for the year 2019. The base limit will be increased to $484,500 for 2019 for all Kentucky VA Home Loans.  This limit applies to the loan amount for KY VA loans with no down payment and with full entitlement of $36,000
.

 

YES – You CAN Buy a Home OVER $484,500 with a VA Mortgage Loan

KY VA Home loans are zero down payment up to $484,500.  If you wish you buy a more expensive home with a VA loan, you will need a small down payment.

The exact formula to determined the VA down payment is a bit more complicated, but the simple quick math is you’ll need about 25% of the difference between the purchase price, and $484,500.

So if you were to buy a $517,000 home. There is a $100,000 difference over the zero down maximum $484,000 loan. Therefore you’ll need a down payment of about $25,000.

Maximum Loan Amount

Individual county loan limits may differ. You can find the link to determine loan limits for the subject property county here.

The maximum potential loan amount for a purchase transaction with full entitlement is $1,094,625. Loan amounts up to $1,500,000 are allowed as long as the VA guaranty plus the veteran’s down payment and/or equity equal 25% of the lesser of the sales price or Notice of Value (NOV).

Under certain conditions (see below), Non-IRRRL refinance transactions are allowed up to 100/100 LTV/CLTV. Refinances not meeting these conditions are limited to a maximum 90/90 LTV/CLTV of the property value shown on the CRV or NOV plus the cost of any energy efficient improvements (up to $6,000) plus the VA Funding Fee.

For IRRRLs, Maximum loan amount is the existing VA loan balance plus the following

  • Allowable fees and charges, plus
  • The cost of energy efficiency improvements, and
  • The VA funding fee = .50.
Cash-Out Refinance Loans greater than 90% LTV

VA Cash-Out Refinance loans will now be offered with LTV/CLTV up to 100%. If the LTV or CLTV greater than 90%, the following additional requirements will apply

  • Maximum cash in hand after all payoffs cannot be greater than $50,000
  • Minimum FICO 660
  • An additional adjustment of -0.5
  • The loan must have a DU Approve/Eligible (No manual underwrites allowed)
Entitlement

A minimum of 25% of the loan amount must consist of available guaranty. If less than 25% guaranty is indicated on the Loan Guaranty Certificate (LGC), a calculation worksheet must be enclosed indicating the calculations used to determine the full 25% guaranty.

The maximum guaranty is the lesser of the veteran’s available entitlement or the maximum potential guaranty amount detailed below:

Up to $45,000 50% of the loan amount
$45,001 – $56,250 $22,500
$56,251 – $144,000 40% of the loan amount with a maximum of $36,000
$144,001 – $417,000 25% of the loan amount with a maximum of $104,250
$417,001 – $1,500,000 25% of the loan amount with a maximum of $273,656

  • Veterans receiving VA compensation for service-connected disabilities
  • Veterans who would be entitled to receive compensation for service-connected disabilities if they did not receive retirement pay
  • Surviving spouses of veterans who died in service or from service-connected disabilities (regardless of whether such surviving spouses are veterans with their own entitlements and whether they are suing their own entitlements on the loan)
  • Veterans who are rated by the VA as eligible to receive compensation as a result of pre-discharge disability examination and rating.
VA Student Loans
  • Student Loans deferred at least 12 months may still be excluded
  • When repayment will begin within the next 12 months, calculate a 5% yearly payment. Then divide that by 12 to get the monthly payment.
    • If the reported payment on the credit report is higher than the above calculated payment, the payment on the credit report must be used.
    • A lower payment reported on the credit report can only be used if corroborated with an official statement from the student loan servicer(s) confirming the loan terms and payment information. This statement can be no more than 60 days old at the time of VA loan closing.
