PLEASE NOTE: As previously announced, Gateway Mortgage Group, LLC has aligned with the policy guidance update: VA Refinance Loans under the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, S.2155 including the clerical amendment relating to section “3709. Refinancing of housing loans.”
As a clarification, the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA) requires the following seasoning requirements for all VA refinance transactions pursuant to the (GNMA) APM 18-04 announcement:
The note date of the refinance loan must be on or after the later of:
- the date that is 210 days after the date on which the first monthly payment was made on the mortgage being refinanced, and
- the date on which 6 full monthly payments have been made on the mortgage being refinanced.
In addition, per GNMA, all loans paid off through a VA refinance must have a payment history which is tied to the first and sixth monthly payment dates.
