Can someone who is approved for a VA home loan, get the house for her son to live in?

My mother in law qualifies for the VA home loan, through her late husband who was in Vietnam and died from something he contracted from the war. Agent orange? I think? I'm not sure. Anyway. She wants to use this VA loan to get me and my husband a house. Can she do this if she isn't planning on living there?... show more My mother in law qualifies for the VA home loan, through her late husband who was in Vietnam and died from something he contracted from the war.

Also, is the VA home loan based on her income?
