To learn more about certain mortgage requirements or to get help with the development of a private street maintenance contract, talk to an experienced mortgage broker. Now, once you know it`s a private street, think about this: In short, never accept the classification or program requirements of a street. Even if the land is located on a dirt road, this does not automatically mean that it is a private road. When is a private road maintenance contract required to qualify for a mortgage? Then you say to yourself, “I just call the listing agent and ask for a copy. It`s pretty standard. I mean, you have to know that they`re on a private road, right? false! You quickly call the listing agent, ask for a copy of the private road maintenance contract, and at the other end of the phone, you can`t hear anything! These five seconds of silence immediately trigger this “butterfly feeling” in your stomach and you immediately know that there is no such agreement! What do we do? Is this agreement dead? Can the veteran sign a deal on his own? Would the execution of this document be solely in their best interest? Will I be able to two, five, ten or, in my case, I needed 60 neighbouring houses to sign a legal document recognizing their financial responsibility for a street they considered the responsibility of the city? If the agreement disintegrates, who`s head on the hash? Is it the responsibility of the lenders, the buyer`s representatives, the listing agent or the seller? All these issues quickly come out of the black hole that any credit officer hates, exists and opens a box of worms that could kill your VA loan. This risks the veteran without a home, perhaps their surety, and who knows, they may not even have room to live, since they have abandoned the lease of the apartment they rented. Fortunately for me and for my situation, I was able to go online to the Massachusetts Registry of Deeds, find the declaration of confidence for the Unitary Development Project (PUD) which no one told us existed, that the relief was properly located and that the costs, maintenance and maintenance of the areas above and below the tarmac road were evenly distributed among the 60 houses on the subdivision! Dodger a huge ball over there! Let`s say we don`t want this to happen again! Since an important part of the directive is whether the road is public or private, the type of surface is not always a determining factor. Thus, today`s video will discuss what to do if the property is located on a private road, the important steps you need to take to secure your funding and explain the private road requirements of the USDA, VA, FHA and conventional credits. How can we avoid this nightmarish scenario? Well, the only way to be absolutely critical in a post-TRID environment is communication! As a lender, you must make this call to the listing agent who presents himself, declare that it is VA financing and highlight any specific needs that the VA loan could engender. Inform these officers of private street requirements, parasitic inspection, water testing, minimum property requirements and anything else that can help your veterans be near their home. This has come a long way, especially for listing agents who are petrified by VA home loans. Who knows, it could only create a new referral partner for you! It has happened to me more than once.
