What You’ll Need To Get Approved

  • By-Laws
  • Most Recent Budget
  • Insurance Policies
  • Completed Questionnaire


Call us or email us at info@nationalcondoadvisors.com. We’ll handle everything from document collection to agency submission.

We offer a range of approvals that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the borrowers within each development. Our team of compliance experts will not only let you know which type of approval is available for the site but will also let you know which fits the site best.

 At National Condo Advisors we offer a suite of approval products. In developments where a Fannie Mae approval isn’t warranted we offer a portfolio lender approval and a Fannie Mae Compliance service so that lending is always available and abundant. Agency and/or lender compliance is necessary for mortgage lending to be available within a condo/co-op development regardless of unit value.


A reserve study will outline the actual cost of component repair and replacement. It often results in a reduced contribution. In new construction condo developments, a reserve study can serve to reduce reserve requirements by more than 90%!


In fact, we currently service lenders across the United States and serve as their entire condo/co-op back office. We review and can warrant projects for Fannie Mae/FHA/Freddie Mac compliance.


Our organization needs staff training on very specific issues and none of the course listings on your website provide exactly what I need. Do you create custom training packages?

Absolutely.  Our team of industry experts would be happy to develop a custom training sessions for individuals or entire organizations, tailor made to your agency, issue, or other specific criteria needs.  All of our training courses and custom training packages can be provided on-site and in-person, or via the internet in an interactive webinar format.  Please contact us by phone or by email to speak with one of our education and training specialists to arrange for custom training.
