What Does VA IRRL Mean?

VA IRRRL stands for Veteran Affairs Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan. 

What is a VA IRRRL?

The VA IRRRL loan is a "streamline loan" that allows VA borrowers to refinance their current mortgage to a lower rate, transition from an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) to a fixed-rate mortgage or both. 

How Does a VA IRRRL Work?

The process requires very little paperwork on your end with little or no out-of-pocket expenses. If closing costs prove to be an issue, some borrowers have the opportunity of rolling their closing costs into the total loan amount using a government-backed option. Also, appraisals are rarely required, which can further simplify and speed up the process.

Does a VA IRRRL Require an Appraisal?

No appraisal or credit check is required by the VA and very rarely would a lender need to obtain an appraisal.

VA IRRRL Eligibility
  • You must have an existing VA loan and made your last three payments on-time

  • There must be a "net tangible benefit," which means that the IRRRL must have a lower interest rate than the loan that it is refinancing unless the loan is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

  • You can certify that you currently live in or used to live in the home covered by the loan 

*When it comes to refinancing your home loan, you can generally reduce your monthly payment amount; however, total finance charges may be higher over the life of your mortgage loan.
