VA loans are available for condominiums and planned unit developments in California. The condo must be on or added to the VA approved list. A list of VA-approved condominium projects and planned unit development projects can be found at:

At this website, you can search within Orange County, within a specific city in the county or within the entire state of California. No new California planned unit development entries have been added to the list since VA discontinued its review and approval of these types of projects. The responsibility for adding planned unit developments to the approved list is now with lender. Condo units must still be VA-approved.
