So the process of uploading documents was very easy. My biggest issue was service. I was frustrated with the delay of the appraisal which caused us some stress because we had to move out of our existing house and we could not move in to our new one because of the delay.
When I relayed this frustration I feel like I was ignored for a bit of time rather than addressing it. Once the appraisal was complete the communication did get better. But it took two weeks from when I told VU to order the appraisal and when it was done.
Started the process very early (3 months) in advance so that most paperwork could be completed early. Was told that once my firm job offer was received, it would take underwriting about 5 days to approve the loan. Once I received the “final document” it took an additional 4 weeks and a plethora of documents to close on the loan, most of which could have been prepared and provided to me during the first two months. During this time I had to resubmit several documents which had been previously submitted and “green checked” as reviewed and accepted. This lender does not understand lateral job transfers between federal agencies, and that you are continuously on the fed. payrolls without break in service when you transfer. This was my fourth house purchase using a VA loan, and by far the most difficult experience. The only reason Joe didn’t get 10 is because it took a week for him to order the appraisal after I called to order it, and because his assistant seemed extremely disorganized and confused every time I spoke to her about about loan documents and status. It was easier to resubmit documents at her request than to argue that it was already received and approved in the online system. Anytime I spoke to Joe directly he was very helpful, and easy to work with, however most contact was with assistant, which proved to be somewhat frustrating.
