As far as I know the streamline program is just an FHA program. I’m not aware of an equivalent VA program, but you might check with a lender.
For the FHA streamline program non-owner occupants are eligible…it’s a non-qualifying program after 6 on time payments. There are closing costs but they can be rolled into the loan. The program is offered through FHA lenders…the problem is that most of them are unaware of the program, so you’ll probably have to educate them.
