Mortgage guaranteed up to 30 years by the Veterans Administration to veterans meeting minimum requirements. Originally established by the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, amended provisions state the maximum guaranteed mortgage amounts and interest than can be charged. There are no provisions on the loan to property value permitting qualified veterans to obtain 100% financing, although some mortgagees will independently establish loan limits. A borrower must receive a certificate of eligibility and the property to be mortgaged must also have a certificate of reasonable value. A veterans administration mortgage is assumable, mortgagees cannot have prepayment mortgage penalties and only one point can be charged.
