The benefits of the Streamline VA Streamline IRRRL Refinance Program are:

  • The VA borrower does not have to go through credit qualifications, however your existing mortgage must be current and you must not have had more than one thirty-day late mortgage payment within the past 12 months.
  • The normal underwriting process may not apply.
  • According to the program guidelines, you may not need to send in proof of income such as; w2’s, bank statements, and pay stubs, etc. because as long as you are paying your mortgage payment, they are confident that you will keep it up. But please still check with your professional lender or the lending bank as well.

“The Streamline VA home loan may even allow 103.15% financing without PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) or a 20% second mortgage as well as up to $6,000 energy efficient improvements.”
