Tips on getting a Kentucky VA Mortgage Guidelines for Approval

Getting your Louisville Kentucky VA Loan Approval

Run a 25-year loan if you are not getting an approval with a 30-year. Even with
higher ratios, 25-year loans are considered lower risk and can be key to getting
an Approve Eligible
• You can do a VA IRRRL on a property that the veteran no longer lives in
• Payoff debts at closing with seller concessions. When writing the offer, this
information goes in the “under additional provisions or other terms” section
• No seasoning requirement for being added to the title (No flip rule)
• Only type of loan where an SAR Underwriter can adjust the value after a
secondary review in Tidewater with a request from the borrower. That gives us
two chances to increase the value if it comes in under.
• You can have more than one at the same time.
• If the DD-214 is a Dishonorable Discharge, the Veteran can re-apply and get their
benefits reinstated and then buy their home. (Apply to the BCMR to upgrade on
basis of clemency)
• No max loan amount & no max amount of closing costs a seller can pay.
• Time of service requirements can be appealed if they are discharged due to a
service-related disability
• Student loans in deferred status that go by old guidelines can be omitted.
• Disputes do not need to be removed to qualify. This is a good trick if you need a
couple extra points. (Disputing collections)
• Time of service requirements can be appealed if they are discharged due to a
service-related disability.
• LP is generally nicer to VA Loans that have derogatory trade lines
