Happy Hump Day –
Did you know that VA will allow the Veteran Buyer to pay for termite work required to obtain a clear termite report? It’s true! The purchase contract must clearly state what work will be paid for by the Veteran/Buyer and at what cost.
As long as the details are clearly spelled out on the purchase contract, the amounts are listed on the HUD and the borrower has sufficient acceptable assets to do so, the Vet can pay for termite work. Keep in mind the Veteran Buyer can never be charged for the Termite/Pest inspection fee.
Don’t overlook the benefit of this great loan product.
