VA Mortgage Closing Costs

The VA Loan program typically allows for no down payment financing of the purchase of a home.  However, Veteran home buyers will still have closing costs that include fees from the lender and title company, plus county recording fees.  There will also be pre-paid insurance, as well and deposits to the borrower’s escrow account for property taxes and insurance.

The good news is a VA Mortgage allows a home seller to pay for the borrowers closing costs up to 4% of the loan amount.  This is usually enough to cover most if not all of the Veteran homer buyer’s costs associated with closing on a new home purchase.

There are also certain fees known as “VA non-allowable” fees.  The Veteran borrower is not allowed to pay these fees and they are most commonly paid for by the seller of the home.  When the seller is already contributing towards the buyer/borrower’s closing costs, these funds can be applied towards the VA non-allowable fees.
