Mortgage FAQs

Do I need to open a bank account with FNBA in order to apply for a mortgage loan?

No. There is no requirement to open an account with FNBA in order to obtain a mortgage.

Can I apply for a mortgage loan even if I do not have credit history nor a credit score?

Does FNBA report payment history of clients without a Social Security number?

I have equity in my home, how soon can I refinance and get cash out?

FNBA requires borrowers to establish at least 6 months of ownership prior to being eligible for a cash-out refinance. Please note that though you may otherwise be eligible, the equity you have in your property may limit the amount of cash based on maximum loan to value limits acceptable to FNBA.

I have a piece of land, can you lend me money to build a house there?

FNBA does not allow loans to construct a home, and therefore would not lend in this case.

I need to buy a home for a member of my family. Will that count as a second loan with a higher down payment requirement?
