b. VA Form 26-6705b is used as a credit application to determine the prospective buyer creditworthiness in instances when the prospective buyer seeks VA vendee financing. In such sales, the offer to purchase will not be accepted until the buyer's income and credit history have been verified and a loan analysis has been completed.
c. VA Form 26-6705d is an addendum to VA Form 26-6705 for use in the state of Virginia. The forms requires the buyer to be informed of the State's law at or prior to closing the transaction.
