VA FAQ #13 - What is a VA LAPP Lender and Why you should work with us.

VanDyk Mortgage is a VA LAPP Lender.   So what does that mean?    LAPP stands for the Lender Appraisal Processing Program.   VA lenders such as VanDyk Mortgage get set up as LAPP VA lenders to get better control over the VA Appraisal timelines.   With LAPP VA Appraisals,  once the VA Appraiser from the VA's Appraiser panel returns the Vompleted VA Appraisal to the VA Appraisal Portal,  we assign our own VA Underwriter to review the Appraisal and issue the NOV or Notice of Valuation.   

What does this mean to you as a VA home buyer?   Since it's our own staff reviewing the VA Appraisal and issuing the final NOV Approval, our timelines are under our control.   Brokers and Independent VA Lenders must wait for their Regional VA office to underwrite their Appraisals, that can take anywhere from a normal 2-5 days,  to excessive times such as 3-4 weeks (which are actual timelines experienced by Independent lenders using one of the regional VA offices due to budget cuts, to underwrite their Appraisals last year).  

We are proud to be a LAPP VA Lender, as it allows us to offer expedited timelines for VA Loans, just like FHA or Conventional Loans.
