Closing costs that may be charged to the buyer are considered "allowable" closing costs per VA. These are buyer costs that are reasonable and customary as determined by VA.

The following table gives a break down of these costs:



  • Appraisal Fee (if customary)
  • Credit Report Fee
  • Endorsement Fee (related to title insurance only)
  • Home Inspection Fee
  • Notary Fee
  • Origination Fee (max 1% of loan)
  • Discount Points

  • Survey
  • Flood Zone Determination
