It’s been a long time since I’ve done it, but in my experience if you sell to a qualified vet, he/she can substitute elegibility so you can have yours released.

Purchased a new home in 2003 with a VA loan fixed at 5.5% intrest for 30 years. There is 25k in equity at this time and I want to sell the property. There are 2 issues: How do I get Release of liability and Restoration of entitlement. I have gotten several different answers and would like to find out from someone who has actually sold their own house as a veteran, who originated the VA loan or an experienced investor who may know exactly how this really works. Also what are the rules if I wanted to let someone assume the loan? I feel like this is a great intrest rate and would be open to any creative ways to sell as well. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

Release of liability must be obtained from the VA. If you let some one assume the loan, the VA has to approve them for you to get release of liability. If it is just your release you want it is easier. I have done it.

You’ll have to contact the VA for release or transfer. I agree w/Jacl E your buyer will have to be approved by them. However, you may want to get your VA released back to you so that you can reuse it on another buy. I’ve done 3 properties like this although it’s been awhile I always keep my VA with me as I understand it you sell your rights to it you can not get another.
