FHA/VA/Farmers Home - Similar Guidelines?

Hello Everyone-

Trying to get some clarification on repair guidelines for VA and Farmers Home/Rural Housing Loans.

I have a fairly decent idea on FHA required repairs from the 4150.2 and HOC handbook, but does VA follow FHA guidelines and is there anything additional they require? I am not a VA appraiser, just looking for information. As to Farmers Home/Rural Housing loans, I believe they are geared more towards the insulation and energy factor regarding the home, but do you also follow FHA guidelines? Or is that a lender call.

Thanks for any advice or informational links you guys may have!
