But I totally understand you wanting to buy a home. It's the American Dream.
So here's my take on this. Go back and re-read your documentation carefully. Here's what I'm getting from it. First sentence is pretty clear..."If student loan repayments are scheduled to begin WITHIN 12 months of the date of VA loan closing, LENDERS SHOULD CONSIDER THE MONTHLY OBLIGATION.." (So right now, sounds like you really only have documentation showing deferrment for the next 11 months). BUT THEN it says...."IF borrower is able to provide evidence that the debt MAY be deferred for a period outside that timeframe, the debt need not be considered in the analysis". Just because you have paystubs for this year doesn't necessarily mean you WILL get another deferrement next year, right? The key word here is "MAY". I'm guessing the lender doesn't want to take the risk that you MAY or MAY NOT have this debt deferred.
Think about it. Would you want to loan hundreds of thousands of dollars to somebody who MAY or MAY NOT be able to pay you back? Just my two cents. Again, I'm not a lender, but it might be worth getting a couple of opinions. Good luck to you!
Additionally, if you make that little, maybe you should consider paying your student loans before you decide to try to buy a home.
