My husband (the veteran) and I are deciding on whether or not to purchase our first house, and using a VA loan. However, my father, also a veteran, has never used his VA loan and are in more of a position to purchase a starter home than my husband and I. My question in short is, would my father be able to use his VA loan to purchase a house, that my husband and I would be living in, or would my father need to be the primary resident? 


Normally the buyer needs to be the primary resident. But hey who's to say you aren't "roommates"
kcgrane: You might wish to contact the VA and/or check their website: regarding the specific requirements. Hope this helps!
