  1. I am 1 month behind on my mortgage. The co owner has not lived or provided any assistance for the past five years on the mortgage loan. He lives in another state, I have tried to get his name off the mortgage, my attorney has sent him a letter and he never responded. I really do not know what to do. I have been able to make the payments until now, I have been in my home for 11 years. Please can you tell what are my options, I would love to stay in my home.

    1. Hello karen whitaker,

      Situations such as yours are unique to every case, so there really is not any specific advice I can give you here. You need to log in to your NACA file and begin the process of seeking a mortgage modification. The issues that may arise from the co owner’s absence will vary depending on the state you live in and the servicer’s policies. You may need to seek legal action effectively claiming abandonment to get the court to order the bank to put the house in your name alone, but neither NACA nor I are qualified to give legal advice,
      so you will need to continue to work with your attorney on those issues.

      for now, the key action you need to take regarding the mortgage is submitting the documents required to seek a modification and scheduling an appointment with a NACA counselor.

  4. Hello;

    I am co-signer on my sisters home and my husband is a co-signer on his parents home so they could qualify to buy their homes. We are now in the process of thinking of getting a home ourselves, but my sister is not able to refinance out of the existing mortgage because of a settlement on her credit report for the equity line. Will NACA be able to provide us a loan if we are not on title of those properties, but the loans are under our names?

    1. Hello Linda Tran,

      Unfortunately, NACA is not going to be able to help you under the circumstances you describe. Our regulations are very specific that nobody in the household may have an ownership interest in any other property. If either of your names are on either the deed or the loan for another property, we are prohibited from working with you.

      In the case of the deed, a simple Quit Claim Deed at your County Registrar’s office usually will resolve the problem. In the case of the mortgage, I’m afraid you are stuck if it cannot be refinanced to get the mortgage out of your name.

      I’m truly sorry we are not going to be able to help you at this point in time.

    1. Hello Ms. Carson,

      You will not be able to buy a home again until 24 months after the discharge of the bankruptcy. This allows you to rebuild a history of meeting your obligations on time that will allow us to bypass your credit score. Additionally, this is a faster turnaround time than most banks which will make you wait five or even seven years in many cases.

    1. Hello Ardell Daniels,

      There are no special requirements or restrictions regarding refinancing because you received a mortgage modification. You may go to the lender of your choice to refinance like anyone else.

    1. Hello susan,

      Under the terms of the NACA owner occupancy requirement, you are required to live in the home as long as you have the NACA mortgage. NACA places a $25,000 lien on the home to enforce this requirement, which can be easily removed if you should sell the home or refinance the loan.

  6. I AM POA (POWER OF ATTORNEY) FOR MY MOTHER. SHE ONLY RECEIVES SOCIAL SECURITY AND IS PURCHASING A USDA HOME. COULD NACA HELP HER WITH THIS?
    EVERY TIME I HAVE ASK FOR A PAY OFF I GET A RUN AROUND ABOUT HAVING TO ADD BACK THE ASSISTANCE THAT HAS BEEN PROVIDED IN THE PAST AND THAT AT THIS TIME – THEY CAN NOT GIVE ME A PAY OFF AMOUNT. THEY SENT PAPERWORK ON MY MOTHERS LOAN THAT SAYS THE SAME THING. DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO? WANTED TO REFIANCE TO MAYBE GET HER NOTES LOWER IF POSSIBLE?

    1. Hello KAYE HAMM,

      NACA does not do any sort of refinancing. NACA’s two programs are our Purchase Program which helps primarily low and moderate income buyers get fixed rate, affordable mortgages, and our Home Save Program, which helps struggling homeowners with an identifiable hardship get modifications on their present unaffordable mortgage.

      I suggest you contact our Home Save Program at 281-968-6222 and speak with a rep to see if our Home Save Program can be of help to you.

  7. My husband and I signed up for NACA in 2009 we started with paperwork and all but at that time I had an accident and everything stopped and we weren’t able to complete everything and be able to purchase a home, now we are ready to get a home and wanted to know what the steps are in order for us to sign up with NACA again, please help us our current home was sold and need to be out by May, we are so tired of renting and now is the time for us to own our own home. I appreciate your prompt response.

    thank you

  8. Can you have a co signer if you have had some late rental payments? The mortgage will be significantly lower than the rental fee.

    1. Hello Debbie,

      A co-signer will not make a difference with the NACA program. You must have a 12 month history of on time rent payments without exception. We consider paying your rent on time the single strongest indicator of your ability to make your mortgage payment on time each and every month. Please continue to build a 12 month on time rent history so we can work with you on becoming a homeowner!

  9. What do you consider late rental payments? I know Mortgage underwriting consider 30 days late payments even though most rental properties consider you late after the 5th.

    1. Hello Timothy Tatum,

      Absolutely not. Your counseling sessions are in fact the core of the NACA qualification process. There is no bypassing any stage of the NACA process whatsoever.

  11. I am currently renting and have not been a home owner. Will the NACA Program be beneficial to me as a first time home buyer. My income, rent and credit are in good standings. What steps should I take. Thank you

    1. Hello Lisa Smith,

      Simply go to the NACA website at http://www.naca.com and enter your Zip Code where indicated to locate and register for a Home Buyer’s Workshop near you. This will give you all the infomration you need to proceed through the program and is also the required first step in the NACA process.

  12. Hello. I have a landlord judgment from over 7 years ago. I don’t see it on my credit report but I never paid it. Would I need to pay this before qualifying for the loan ?

    1. Hello Lee,

      You must live in the property for the entire time you have the NACA mortgage, and the $25,000 lien exists to enforce that owner occupancy requirement. In other words, the lien exists as long as you have the NACA mortgage.
