What is a VA IRRRL?
The Veterans Administration (VA) Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan (IRRRL) is a refinance program specifically created for homeowners who currently have a VA loan. The process has been simplified and streamlined, allowing VA borrowers to save money on their mortgage with little hassle. Qualified borrowers must be active duty, veterans, National Guard or a surviving spouse of a veteran.
Benefits of a VA Streamline Refinance (IRRRL)
- No new appraisal or income verification required
- Certificate of Eligibility is not required
- The home does not need to be owner-occupied
- Closing costs may be rolled into the loan
