LINDON, Utah, May 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — After President Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S.2155) into law on May 24, 2018, veterans lost out on one of their biggest VA benefits: the VA IRRRL.
Low VA Rates has long warned of the dangers of this legislation. When it was first announced, they published an article that outlined how it would ultimately be detrimental to veterans. This article built on two prior posts (here and here) that covered related topics
With the passing of S.2155, veterans are already feeling the effects foreshadowed months ago by Low VA Rates. When interest rates dropped on May 29th, thousands of veterans were unable to refinance because of the new law’s restrictions.
Eric Kandell, Low VA Rates’ CEO, said, “I think it is telling that two days after this bill became law, interest rates had one of their best rallies in months, yet veterans were not able to lock in these lower interest rates.”
For both veterans and lenders, how to navigate these changes is uncertain. With a lack of guidance from Ginnie Mae on how to handle loans that were already in progress before the law was signed, many veteran homeowners are now unable to get the rates they were promised.
“This legislation is a major blow to veterans everywhere,” Tim Lewis, the VP of Sales for Low VA Rates, said. “In my opinion, it is yet another example politicians can cause more harm than good when they try to change something they know nothing about.”
If you want to truly protect our veterans and defend their freedom, Low VA Rates encourages everyone to contact their senators and representatives, especially those that sponsored the bill.
