I was wondering if I could receive some information about buying a first home using a VA loan. My boyfriend of 3.5 years and I are looking to buy a home relatively soon. I'm 28 years old, I have a steady job and decent income and he is currently in school and is 25 years old, and has been out of the military for 4 years. He receives service-connected disability compensation each month (and this will continue for the rest of his life) as well as a stipend from the VA for vocational rehabilitation (similar to the GI bill). Currently he is not working - just going to school, but we use most of his disability compensation for rent each month. Our rent is currently 895.00 per month, no utilities included, and we are managing pretty well. Because he is a veteran, he is eligible to receive a VA home loan as far as we know.However, there are a few issues that I am unsure of in the home buying process. Question 1: Will he be able to receive a VA loan given that he is not currently working? Question 2: Will his disability compensation and vocational rehabilitation monies be considered income? Question 3: Since we are not married, will I be able to be on the loan with him? What kind of issues will we run across by not being married?Any information about these issues will be very helpful! Thanks so much, and please let me know if I can provide any additional details.Thanks,Danielle
