Can my son or daughter use my Wife's VA Loan?

by Kimberly R.
(Newhall, CA)


To Whom it May Concern: I was wanting to know if my step-children can use my VA loan to buy a house? My husband(their father)is also a vet and we used his VA Loan to buy our home.

And I would like to allow either one of my step-children to use my VA loan if that possible? Or can my husband, although he has a VA Loan on our house, can he still let them use the part of his VA Loan that was not used to buy a home for themselves.

Or could they use mine being their stepmother?Please let us know how and if this can be done and is if can do they get the same type loan we received with some costs paid for us and zero down etc.

Hello Kim,

Thank you stopping by our website and asking your questions. Also I wanted to give you a big shout out for providing all the details so I can give you the best answer.

In answer to your questions, the VA loan is only for the Veteran him/her self. In other words, only the person who served in the military can obtain the home loan which is guaranteed by the VA.

Your children or step children would have to be vets themselves to get in one one of these type of loan programs.

Besides that, you can only have one VA loan at a time. So you or your husband both being Vets cannot buy a home for your children using the VA Loan.

You may want to visit my page that talks about the va certificate of eligibility that explains in detail how the process begins.

Another page to consider looking at would be va loan requirements which helps you understand all the requirements to get a VA home loan.

Sorry about not having any real good news for you here. Uncle Sam gives Vets these benefits and only them for their service.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask them below so you can keep them in this same thread on my blog.

Also, if you don't mind, help me spread the word by liking us in your FaceBook or give us a shout in your Twitter account.

Kind Regards,

Jeff Ragan
