I am getting conflicting information regarding whether a VA buyer can or cannot pay to cure any termite work needed to satisfy loan conditions?

The VA core guidelines do not care if the buyer pays for termite work (they just can't pay for the termite report). But most lenders have an overlay not allowing the borrower to pay for the termite work. Sometimes they will ask for the invoice to see who paid. Although I believe there are a few lenders who either do not ask who paid, or are OK with the buyer paying. I would have to double check. Let me know if I can assist.
