As a reminder, a billing statement is not required to make a mortgage payment.

If a check is returned after a payment was marked as paid, the payment will be removed from the account.

I received a non sufficient funds fee from my bank. Will you waive that fee?

How is my monthly payment applied if I send in extra principal?
Before payments can be applied to principal, you must bring your account current by paying off any outstanding fees and late charges. Extra payments will then be applied to outstanding principal.
What is Escrow Account/Analysis?

Once a year you will receive an escrow analysis statement that is required by the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). This statement represents how your escrow payment, which is a portion of your monthly mortgage payment, will be collected and disbursed during the upcoming year. Your escrow account is used to pay real estate taxes, hazard insurance, mortgage insurance and any other escrow-related items that need to be paid through out the year.

Each year an escrow analysis is performed approximately 30 days prior to the anniversary of your first payment due date.  The total annual escrow disbursements and deposits anticipated for the following 12 months are displayed disclosing either a projected surplus or shortage.

How can I track my escrow account?
If you are an online banking customer, you may view your account on our website by selecting the View History link. Transactions are also reflected on your monthly billing statements.
Why did my escrow payment increase?
When comparing the disbursements made and future estimated payments against the amount of escrow money being contributed monthly, a shortage in the amount of money required has been identified. Most likely there was an increase in property taxes and/or hazard insurance premiums.
Will my payment remain the same if I pay the shortage in full?
Not necessarily. Paying your shortage will minimize the payment increase, but if your tax or insurance bills have increased from the previous year the overall escrow payment will increase to prevent a shortage from occurring again.
What do I do to establish an escrow account?

Please submit your request to establish an escrow account for both taxes and insurance in writing to the mortgage research department at P. O. Box 91214, Cleveland, OH 44101 or by fax at (216) 583-5203.

Include the following:

  • Copy of most recent tax bill.
  • Proof taxes are paid current. (If taxes are due within the next 60 days they must be paid by you before we set up the escrow account.)
  • Copy of homeowner’s insurance declaration page.
  • Proof homeowner’s insurance is paid current.  (If the insurance is due within 60 days it must be paid by you before we set up the escrow account.)

When the above items have been received, an Initial Escrow Disclosure Statement will be completed to determine the starting balance needed for deposit to the escrow account.  You will then be notified in writing of the initial deposit required to start the escrow account. Once you have forwarded the initial deposit, the escrow account will be established and you will be notified of the monthly escrow payment.

How can I pay additional escrow?
You may pay additional money to escrow at any time. Please be sure to notate on payment coupon that the additional funds are for escrow.
Why would I want to pay additional money towards the escrow account?
The most common reasons that a borrower may want to pay additional to the escrow account are:
  • New construction properties may not have been fully assessed by the local tax assessors office at the time of loan closing. Often the estimated property tax is based on land only or a partially assessed home. If this was the case, the first year analysis often reflects a large escrow shortage and payment increase due to the full assessment by the tax assessors office. Paying additional monies to escrow would help eliminate all or a portion  of that shortage and therefore not reflect as much of a payment change.
  • Re-assessment evaluations are often done periodically by your local tax assessors office and sent to you.  Since real estate taxes are based on this assessment, this may give you some indication of whether your real estates taxes may increase, before we actually pay the new bill.  Applying additional monies may help alleviate a large shortage due to the increase.
I filed or received confirmation of a homestead exemption, or re-assessment of my property, should I send it to you to adjust my escrow payment?

If the document received from the County entity specifies what your estimated taxes will be based on this new information, and you would like an interim analysis completed, you can send the document for review along with your written request to reanalyze the escrow account based on the new information to P. O. Box 91214, Cleveland, OH 44101. 

An interim escrow analysis will be completed. If the document does not reflect the actual tax amounts, we can not analyze the account based on an assessment notice that does not include actual tax amounts. Your treasurer's office may be able to provide you with an alternate letter providing the actual tax amount.

I did not have an escrow account previously but recently received an Escrow Analysis Statement that reflects either forced placed tax or insurance on it. Why did I receive this and why is my payment changing?
It is the responsibility of the Bank to ensure that both the property taxes and the required insurances are current on all mortgaged properties. 
If we receive notice from the appropriate authorities that a tax or insurance bill has been missed we will pay the item and establish a escrow account to collect for the amount paid and for future payments as well. If you believe that we have paid the item(s) in error, please contact our Customer Contact Center at (877) 786-6560 so we may discuss the situation with you.

How do I update my insurance carrier? Do I need to update NYCB about changes to my insurance information even if I don't have an escrow account?

If you are changing insurance companies your agent must provide NYCB with a copy of your signed authorization to accept the new company. You will need to contact your prior carrier for cancellation. If the prior policy was paid from your escrow account, and you receive a refund check as a result of the cancellation, the refunded money should be sent to us for deposit into your escrow account to prevent a future escrow shortage.

Please provide your new insurance company with the mortgage clause/mailing address (found within these FAQs) along with your mortgage loan number.

Yes, it is important to notify NYCB of your most recent insurance information. Please forward all insurance information to our insurance center:

New York Community Bank
P.O. Box 5932

What is Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)?

Mortgage Insurance is required on mortgage loans that have a loan-to-value ratio (LTV) greater than 80%. This insurance is written by a private company protecting the mortgage lender against financial loss occasioned by a borrower's defaulting on the mortgage.

To initiate cancellation of Borrower-Paid Conventional Mortgage Insurance:
Please call (877) 786-6560, or for faster service, fax your signed written request to (216) 588-4608.

What is loan-to-value (LTV) ratio?
LTV is a calculation of the amount of a first mortgage lien as a percentage of the total original appraised value or purchase price whichever is less, divided by current principal balance.

Was the PMI requirement disclosed to me at closing?
At the time of closing you were provided a Private Mortgage Insurance Disclosure document. This document reflects the date of the anticipated automatic cancellation of PMI along with other information concerning PMI.

Will the PMI be automatically terminated?
For Borrower Paid PMI, generally there is automatic termination for loans closed on or after 7/29/99 once an LTV of 78% for Single Family Residence and Second Homes based on original loan amortization, if the loan is current.

Automatic termination for loans closed prior to 7/29/99 is at the mid-point of original amortization  if payments are current for all existing mortgages, including a 2-4 Primary Residence and 1-4 Family Investment.

FHA Loans

For loans closed prior to 01/01/2001, FHA insurance is for the life of the loan. With FHA loans, if the LTV reaches 78% earlier than scheduled due to curtailment payments, the borrower can request cancellation of mortgage insurance premium (MIP) by a written request.

For loans closed between 01/01/2001 and 06/02/2013, HUD automatically cancels the MIP on the date the loan is scheduled to reach 78% LTV based on the original amortization schedule.

For loans closed on or after 06/03/2013, FHA's monthly mortgage insurance payments will be automatically terminated when these conditions occur:

  • For mortgages with LTV of 89.99% or less, annual premiums will be canceled at the end of the mortgage term or eleven years, whichever occurs first.
  • For mortgages with LTV of 90.00% or greater, annual premiums will be canceled at the end of the mortgage term.

How can I increase the equity in my home (and reduce the LTV percentage)?
Based on the current value of the home, the equity is increased by:

  1. Your monthly regular payment gradually reducing the principal balance owed.
  2. Making periodic or a lump sum payment to principal.
  3. Making structural improvements that, based on an appraisal*, increase the value of your home.

*Note – appraisals for the purposes of evaluating LTV for PMI removal must be ordered through the Bank.

How can I or a third party request a payoff quote? What happens to my escrow balance after I payoff my loan?

Please fax all payoff requests to (216) 937-8978 with the following information:

  • Borrower name
  • Borrower written authorization is required for third party payoff requests
  • Account number
  • Property address
  • Good through date
  • Return fax number
  • Contact name and phone number

Please allow 24 – 48 hours for turnaround.

Within 10 business days of payoff any remaining escrow balance will be refunded to the last mailing address on record.  Please ensure to update the mailing address if applicable. 

Why did I receive an amended payoff quote?

If there are any financial transactions completed after a payoff quote has been generated, an amended quote will be generated with updated information.

Why did I receive a letter stating my loan was maturing and a payoff is expected?
You will receive a 'maturity letter' 90 days before the maturity date. This letter will inform you that a payoff is expected by the maturity date of the loan.
Payments can not be accepted beyond the maturity date and will be returned with a request for payment in full of the loan. Please contact our loss mitigation department if you unable to make the final payoff for any options that may be available to you.

Information about Form 1098

What is a 1098 Tax and Interest Statement?
The 1098 interest statement is a federal tax form that lenders distribute in January for the preceding calendar year. The 1098 is required by the IRS and reports interest and points paid on a mortgage loan. All 1098 statements are mailed by January 31st.

When will I receive my 1098 statement?
All 1098 statements are mailed by January 31st. 

Where can I obtain my Form 1098 info?
Form 1098 is mailed by the last business day of January and is also available online until the tax return deadline each year. Please call our Customer Contact Center at (877) 786-6560 to obtain a previous year’s tax statement by mail. If you are an online banking customer, you may print a duplicate copy of the current year 1098 statement by selecting My Account while viewing your loan within Online Banking.

Why does my 1098 statement reflect more interest this year than in a previous year?
If more payments were posted within a given year than a prior year it is possible that the interest paid will be higher than a previous years. Also, if you have an adjustable rate mortgage the interest paid will fluctuate from year to year. 

How do I request a new 1098 statement because my property tax or insurance information is not reflected correctly on my statement?
Property tax and insurance information on a 1098 is informational only and is not reported to the IRS. A 1098 statement can not be "corrected or updated" for tax amounts. Any amount appearing on a 1098 does not mean the customer is entitled to a credit on their tax return. Customers should consult with their Tax Advisor. 

How do I request a new 1098 statement to reflect a different primary borrower and their social security number?
The interest reported to the IRS is reported in only the primary borrower's name and social security number as it appeared as of December 31st. A primary and secondary name cannot be switched/altered for prior tax year reporting. If you wish to make a change for the current tax year we require the following: A letter requesting the change signed by all parties on the loan, along with the social security number of the requested primary borrower sent to our correspondence mailing address of P.O. Box 91214, Cleveland, OH 44101. Please consult your tax adviser if you have questions concerning this matter. 

I noticed that my social security number is incorrect on my current 1098 statement, how can I request a corrected statement?
If you are an online banking customer, please visit the Forms link when viewing your loan account and download a W-9 form. You may either mail or fax the form to us along with a letter stating a new statement is required to P.O. Box 91214, Cleveland, OH 44101 or Fax (216) 583-5203.

You may also call our Customer Contact Center at (877) 786-6560 to obtain a copy.

Why doesn't my 1098 statement reflect the interest or points I paid at closing?
If the loan did not close with NYCB, the closing information will be reported by the origination company.

How do I request or check status on a Subordination?

Once required  documentation is submitted, we will complete the request within 30 days of receipt of the documentation and fee. The loan must be current and up to date including any late charges and or fees. Fees are assessed depending upon applicable law.

How do I change the mortgage title to a Trust Agreement?

A Trust Agreement is a fiduciary type relationship where legal title to a property is transferred to a trustee with the intention that the property be administered by the trustee for the benefit of another.  This person is the beneficiary and he/she holds equitable title to the property.  This is also referred to as a "Living Trust".

  • We will not change any of the original documents.
  • We will not sign any documents related to the trust.
  • We will not change the social security number to a Trust EIN number.

NYCB MAY allow the transfer of title to occur for trust purposes and not initiate the Due on Sale Clause assuming the following requirements are met:

  • The account is totally current.
  • The mortgage holder is the beneficiary of the trust.
  • A copy of the entire Trust agreement must be sent, including the section that pertains to the property and lists the trust beneficiaries.

A transfer to a LLC "Limited Liability Corporation" is not allowed.

The Divisions of New York Community Bank

Queens County Savings Bank​

Established on April 14, 1859 in the village of Flushing, Queens County Savings Bank was the first savings bank chartered by the State of New York in the New York City borough of Queens. Until then, local residents would need to travel to Manhattan to do their banking; the opening of the borough’s first local bank was accordingly met with elation and relief.

While the bank expanded here and there over the course of the next 14 decades, its greatest growth occurred in just the last 15 years. In anticipation of expanding its franchise through the first of several mergers, the Bank changed its name to New York Community Bank on November 21, 2000. By the end of that year, NYCB had grown from 14 to 86 branches; today, it has more than 220 branches in five states.

In deference to its heritage as a Queens-based institution, the Community Bank operates each of its 38 branches in the county under its original name, Queens County Savings Bank.

Roslyn Savings Bank

Established in 1875, The Roslyn Savings Bank was the first financial institution headquartered in Nassau County, one of two counties--with Suffolk--that constitute Long Island, New York. Its founders wanted to build a bank that would provide the Island’s residents with a safe place for their savings, as well as the financial assistance they’d need to build or purchase homes.

A member of the NYCB Family of Bank since October 31, 2003, Roslyn Savings Bank today serves the Island’s businesses and consumers through 42 conveniently placed branch offices.

Richmond County Savings Bank

A member of the NYCB Family of Banks since July 31, 2001, Richmond County Savings Bank is the third oldest of our divisions, with roots that go back to October 30, 1886. It was then that the bank was established to serve those who lived and worked on Staten Island, and it was less than one year later that it made its first mortgage loan.

Today, nearly every street on the Island has at least one home that was financed by Richmond County Savings Bank.

Originally located in the Odd Fellows Building at the corner of Richmond Terrace and Broadway, the Bank today has 20 convenient banking locations in all.

Roosevelt Savings Bank

Roosevelt Savings Bank was established in 1895 on the corner of Gates Avenue and Broadway in Brooklyn under the name “Eastern District Savings Bank.” In 1920, the bank changed its name to honor the memory of the nation’s 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt.

In February 1999, Roosevelt Savings Bank merged with and into Roslyn Bancorp, which merged with and into New York Community Bancorp, Inc. in October 2003.  Today, Roosevelt Savings Bank serves its customers through seven branches in Brooklyn as a member of the NYCB Family of Banks.

Garden State Community Bank

Garden State Community Bank has been a member of the NYCB Family of Banks since March 2008, when we combined all the branches of four smaller New Jersey-based divisions--First Savings Bank of New Jersey, Ironbound Bank, Penn Federal Savings Bank, and Synergy Bank—into a single division with a highly relatable name.

While Penn Federal Savings Bank and Synergy Bank were directly acquired in 2007, First Savings Bank of New Jersey and Ironbound Bank were acquired in 1999 by Richmond County Financial Corp., which subsequently merged with NYCB.

By combining the strengths of these four local banks with the strengths of our institution, we established a Garden State community bank that offers more products and services, and more convenient locations, than any one of these banks provided on its own.

Today, we serve our customers through 45 branches in Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union Counties, most of which first opened their doors nearly 14 decades ago.

AmTrust Bank

AmTrust Bank is one of the more recent additions to a respected banking family that has been serving customers and communities for more than 156 years.

The first branch of AmTrust Bank opened its doors in the late 1980s, when Ohio Savings Bank opened the first of its branches in south coastal Florida under the “AmTrust Bank” name. Eleven years later, it expanded again--this time to Arizona--and on December 4, 2009, it joined the NYCB Family of Banks. With our acquisition of Desert Hills Bank less than four months later, we further expanded our franchise in the Grand Canyon State.

Currently in its seventh year as an NYCB division, AmTrust Bank serves its customers through 41 convenient branches: 14 in central Arizona and 27 in Florida.

Ohio Savings Bank

Ohio Savings Bank is one of the more recent additions to a respected banking family that has been serving customers and communities for more than 156 years.

Established in 1889 as the Ohio Savings Home Loan and Building Co., the bank’s initial expansion was limited to Ohio until it opened its first Florida branch in 1989. Eleven years later, it expanded again, this time to Arizona. And seven years later, it changed its name to AmTrust Bank.

On December 4, 2009, AmTrust Bank became the newest member of our banking family, the first of our divisions to serve customers in non-contiguous states. Four months later, we elected to pay tribute to its forebear, by operating our 28 branches in Ohio under a more suitable name: Ohio Savings Bank.
