VA Loan Process: Part 2
Closing on Your Home

Meet with your VA Loan Specialist

Once you’re officially in escrow, it’s time to meet back up with your VA Loan Specialist to sign the Loan Application and disclosures. You’ll also need to provide updated income and asset documentation to update your file.

During this meeting, your VA Loan Specialist will go over your loan details and potentially lock in your interest rate.

Step 1

Loan Processing & Inspections

The next step involves a Loan Processer to review your file and request necessary items from third parties such as escrow, appraiser, insurance agent & the IRS.

During this time, three important inspections will be ordered; the home inspection, VA appraisal & termite inspection.

Step 2

Submit to Underwriting

Once the file is reviewed and packaged together by the Loan Processor, the file is then submitted to Underwriting.

The Underwriter is responsible for ensuring the loan meets loan guideline requirements and verifies the documentation provided is satisfactory.

Step 3

Satisfy Loan Conditions

A Conditional Loan Approval letter is generated by the Underwriter which outlines the outstanding items needing to be completed prior to loan approval.

Your VA Loan Specialist will coordinate with you to satisfy these remaining conditions.

Step 4

The Closing

Once all loan conditions have been met, you’re off to escrow to sign the final closing documents.

Step 5

Loan Funding & Recordation

Once closing documents have been officially signed, the lender will wire the funds to escrow and officially fund the loan.

In Hawaii, the recordation of your mortgage and deed takes place 48 hours after escrow’s receipt of funds. Once your loan is recorded with the Bureau of Conveyances, you’re officially a new homeowner!

It was a pleasure working with Brenda Carr and the rest of the Hawaii VA Loans team!"
