Jeffrey, Home Buyer in Austin Addition, Round...

Va loan with non purchasing spouse.

Asked by Jeffrey, Austin Addition, Round Rock, TX Fri Aug 5, 2011

My wife cosigned on her parents loan before we were married. They pay the loan and the only tie she has to it is being on the loan so they could get approved. Since her debt is counted against me with a va loan in texas will that mortgage go against me as well on my debt to income. Is there anyway to avoid this, we have tried getting her removed from the loan to no avail.

Help the community by answering this question:


When I got my VA loan, I contacted VA Mortgage with a very similar question. After going through a similar situation once myself, I agree with the other realtors and loan officers.

I agree, John is correct. It will not be an issue. Talk with your lender or broker and have them confirm with underwriter upfront but that is only as a precaution.
