Obtaining Proof of Service Requirements
If Veteran's cannot locate proof of service, they can request military documents either through ebenefits.va.gov or by completing SF - 180, request pertaining to military records.
The completed form should be submitted to the appropriate address shown on the form.
Tip; Lenders and Veterans should not delay requesting acoe pending receipt of requested military documents. In most cases, VA internal systems will have sufficient information to make the eligibility determination.
VA Loan Restoration
A Veteran may have previously used their eligibility for a VA home loan. This does not prevent them from obtaining a VA home loan but the veteran may need to clear the previous loans off of a COE.
This is called the restoration and there are two types
1. basic restoration-restoration of previously-used entitlement is possible if:
the VA guaranteed loan with secured property has been paid in full and the bar or no longer owns the property, or the loan listed was assumed by another veteran, who substituted their entitlement.
2. special restoration- request special restoration of entitlement under either of the following circumstances; if the borrower refinance has a loan that is listed on the c o e as paid in full, you would get a restoration for refinance only.
Tip; rapid restoration- if the veteran intends on selling their existing home that they previously use their eligibility on and, and by their next home shortly afterwards, they then can use a rapid restore which will restore the eligibility in a short time frame. A VA loan may be set up for the new home, and then once the previous home sells, eligibility can be restored.
Maximum Guarantee of a VA loan
VA does not set a cap on how much you can borrow to finance a home. However, there are limits on the amount of liability VA can assume, which usually affects the amount of money an institution will lend you.
The loan limits are teh amount a qualified Veteran with full entitlement my be able to borrow without making a down payment.
These counties, so on for much of the counties, the loan limits are $453,100.
Note; The 2018 limits are the same as the Federal Housing Finance Agency limits..
A veteran and another person are liable, and the veteran and the other obligators has owned the security.
A joint loan is a loan made to:
The veteran and no the veteran and one or more non-veterans not spouse, the veteran and one or more veterans not spouse who will not be using their entitlement, the veteran and the veterans spouse who is also a veteran and both entitlements will be used, or the veteran and one or more other veterans not spouse, Allah who will use their entitlement.
A loan involving a veteran and his or her spouse will not be treated as a joint loan if the spouse:
is not a veteran, or is a veteran who will not be using his or her entitlement on the loan.
A loan to a veteran and fiance who intend to marry prior to the loan closing and take title as a veteran and spouse will be treated as a loan to a veteran and spouse conditioned upon their marriage, and not a joint loan.
Joint Loans - Veteran and non Veteran
Common meaning: a loan involving one veteran and one non veteran not spouse.

veterans using entitlement and 1 non veteran.
Veteran using entitlement and for non-veterans.
wo Veterans using entitlement and to Veterans not using entitlement.
Case study: veteran and non veteran joint loan
In this case, think about the loan amount as split 50/50.
a non veteran must put 25% down on half a loan which is 12.5% of the loan amount. The veteran can 0% down on their half
If the veteran is disabled and has no funding fee, the non veteran must put down the funding fee based on the veterans use. I. E. If the veteran has never had a VA loan and with active duty, then there would be a 2.15% FF added to the non-veterans half of the loan 50/50.
Joint loans - 2 veteran joint loan
Common meeting: a loan involving to Veterans who are not married to each other, and both using their entitlement. For purposes of applying the principle explained in the section, this term will also be used to represent any other type of joint loan involving only veterans, each of whom uses his or her entitlement.
It can include loans to the veteran in the Veteran's spouse who is also a veteran if both entitlements will be used, or three, four, or more veterans, all of whom will use their entitlement.
when two unmarried veterans purchase a home together, each must have eligibility to do so. The eligibility will speak split fifty-fifty between the certificates of each veteran.
In this case the VA must give prior approval to split the eligibility.
If veteran is disabled and has no funding fee, and the other bedroom veteran is not, that veteran must put down the funding fee based on the news. A. If the veteran has never had a VA loan and was active duty, then there would be a 2.15% added to the non disabled veterans half of the loan. or, if neither veteran is disabled and no one is National Guard using for the first time. And the other is active-duty using the second time, the funding fee would be 2.4% of the first time use of National Guard veteran and 3.3% for active duty veterans multiple use.
