i have an LO asking if the VA treats solar the same as FHA...

I’m not on the VA panel, can anyone tell me where this is addressed in the VA guidelines ? I have had no luck googling or searching this site. Thanks!

FHA says you can't value the solar panel is it is leased.

Just imagine how many government studies and taxpayer dollars went into that decision.

Thanks for the link, but I cannot find anything on VA specific requirements.... Is there a VA "handbook" similar to FHA? If so, does someone have a link?
