NFM technology supports borrowers and partners during the COVID-19 pandemic

NFM borrowers can complete all loan application steps electronically, at their convenience, from their preferred location, compliantly and securely.

NFM customers are encouraged to use the following online resources:

  • Loan applications can be completed online
  • The list of documentation that is needed can be received online
  • Our convenient Secure Document Utility (SDU) can be used to upload all documents from the electronic device of choice

NFM also enables our customers to receive, review, and sign their disclosure documents electronically, without requiring person-to-person interaction, or receiving and sending paper documents. Most of our customers already complete loan applications and loan disclosure steps electronically. Customers can use their preferred access to the internet.

Ahead of the loan closing process, NFM customers are also able to review all closing documents, electronically at their convenience, and communicate with their loan originator remotely. This process minimizes the person-to-person interactions that are necessary to review and finalize documents ahead of the loan closing.  The final closing process requires that certain documents are signed in the presence of a notary. NFM customers have ample time to coordinate the time and place of the final document signing, and arrange their preferred signing setting with the title, closing or escrow company depending on the jurisdiction.

To support the entire loan origination process, NFM has implemented electronic means to provide real-time updates to our customers and to our referral partners using our customer relationship management (CRM) system with informative emails and mobile phone text messages.

Lastly and more importantly, our customer communication is supported by technology-enabled team members, that have been fully empowered to work remotely, electronically, and securely, minimizing the risk of any potential disruptions due to geographic or location-specific restrictions.

Beware of scams

Unfortunately, during times of crisis, there are individuals who will take advantage and try to obtain access to your personal information or gain funds for a fraudulent charity. Please exercise caution when opening any emails, texts or receiving phone calls. Do not click on any attachments or links within the email or text from individuals you are unfamiliar with.
