When considering a VA loan there are some property requirements that need to be met before a loan can be qualified.  The VA’s minimum property requirements or MPRs can help point you in the right direction.  Here are a few items that must be met in order to have your loan funded.

The house must have a sound structure free from mold, pests and decay.  If the house has leaks, or exposed wires or a considerable amount of damage it may be best to pick another place.

The property itself must have:

  • At least a bathroom, as well as a space for sleeping, cooking, dining and living.
  • A detailed VA appraisal report must be obtained for any fueled heaters and unvented gas fireplaces.
  • Sufficient water supply that is safe to drink as well as a heater for hot water.
  • Functioning electricity as well as heating and cooling must be in working order

These are just a few requirements needed, the VA website provides a detailed list of all MPRs.  It is never easy finding the perfect home but if any of these issues arise while looking into a potential property it is best to look in another direction.
