VA FAQ #20 - VA Loans and Foreclosure dates - what date is used to determine the minimum waiting period?
The operative date for the VA waiting period after a Foreclosure may surprise you, as it varies somewhat state by state and the corresponding methods of Foreclosure Transfers. In many states, it is based on the Trustee deed or Sherrif's deed, which corresponds to the date the home was sold on the courthouse steps.

Note - If your prior Foreclosure was included in a Discharged Bankruptcy and surrendered, we will use the date of the Bankruptcy discharge as the operative date for the VA Foreclosure waiting period. If you are being told by your Lender you must wait due to the homes sale date being a very long period after the BK discharge, and the 2 years has not elapsed on the home transfer, but the BK was discharged 24 months ago or more, please call us. We allow this calculation, many lenders do not. Call the VA Loan Pro's, we can help. 760-752-4480.
