Considering this, how long does it take to foreclose on a VA loan?

Under federal law, most homeowners—including those with VA loans—get 120 days to try to work out an alternative to foreclosure before the foreclosure can begin. But if you're not able to work out one of the options above or another loss mitigation option, the foreclosure will start.

Furthermore, can the VA stop foreclosure? SCRA may provide a lower interest rate for up to one year, and provide forbearance, or prevent foreclosure or eviction up to nine months from period of military service. When a VA-guaranteed home loan becomes delinquent, VA provides supplemental servicing assistance to help cure the default.
