What Is a Streamline Refinance Loan?

A streamline refinance loan replaces your current government-backed mortgage to take advantage of a lower interest rate.

There are two types of streamline refinance loans:

FHA Streamline Refinance Loan

An FHA streamline refinance loan is a mortgage refinance option for people with existing FHA loans. You can use an FHA streamline refinance loan to get a lower interest rate with less paperwork and faster closing times.

VA Streamline Refinance Loan

A VA refinance loan, also known as an Interest Rate Reduction Refinancing Loan (IRRRL), allows veterans with an existing VA home loan to quickly and easily refinance to a lower interest rate with little to no out-of-pocket costs.

Streamline Refinancing FAQs

If you have a current FHA or VA loan, you are eligible for streamline refinancing. Most streamline refinance loans do not require a credit check or income verification for approval, but you must reside in the house you're trying to refinance to qualify.

On average, it takes 30 to 45 days to complete the streamline refinance process. The specific length depends on your lender and loan terms.

Because the process is streamlined, it requires less documentation than a conventional refinance. You may have to provide:

  • Mortgage statements showing a history of on-time payments.
  • Employer information to verify employment status.
  • Bank statements.
  • Bills addressed to you at the relevant property address to verify your residence.
