In the reference below is VA opinion on the question. My offices are in Parma Heights and I would welcome a call if you have any questions.

For an updated list of FHA approved condos in the Cleveland, Oh area see… This link is available nights and weekends unlike the HUD site. FHA approved condos are easier to sell because buyers can put down a lot less money.

Patty in my experience if a condo is FHA approved then the VA has no problem with a unit except for inspections just as FHA would.
