    Proposed Rule Stage

    177. • Loan Guaranty: Revisions to VA-Guaranteed Refinance Home Loans

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Fully or Partially Exempt.

    Legal Authority: 38 U.S.C. 501; 38 U.S.C. 3720; 38 U.S.C. 3703; 38 U.S.C. 3710

    Abstract: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proposing to amend its rules on VA-guaranteed refinance home loans. In promulgating this rulemaking, VA intends to curtail lending practices that increase the risk of equity skimming and serial refinancing, cause instability in the secondary lending market, devalue the loan guaranty benefit as a lending product, and expose taxpayers to unnecessary risk. This rulemaking would also make certain regulatory updates to conform with statutory changes.
