Hello,

      I am in the process of buying a home. We have put an offer in on a house. Come to find out the seller is also a USAA member who got his mortgage through USAA, and he mentioned we could assume his VA loan. This evening I contacted the mortgage department and was told this would not be an option, as USAA does not offer this service. Is this true?

 

     Does USAA allow/facilitate their VA loans to be assumed by a seller? If not, why not? It is a great benefit of the VA loan that would save us a lot on closing costs and allow us to lock in his lower rate, which is no longer available to us with the current interest rates.
