Answers To Your Frequently Asked Questions (Updated September 9, 2009)
Q – Who is Cenlar FSB?
A– Cenlar FSB d/b/a Central Loan Administration & Reporting, located in Ewing, NJ, is a privately owned, federally chartered savings bank that specializes in mortgage servicing nationwide. We have serviced residential loans for over 50 years.
Q – What should I do if I received a welcome letter from Cenlar FSB and RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corp.?
A– We are aware that there was a small group of customers who received welcome letters from both RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corp. and Cenlar FSB.
Freddie Mac and the FDIC have a current agreement that these loans are to be serviced by Cenlar FSB. You will receive a letter shortly from RoundPoint and us explaining that going forward your loan will be serviced by Cenlar FSB. You should therefore begin making your mortgage payments to Cenlar as directed in the welcome letter you received from us. Any previous payments received by RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corp. will be forwarded to Cenlar.
Q – How do I order a payoff statement?
A – Please e-mail the following information to TBWpayoff@cenlar.com
Q – I am on automatic draft, will my payment continue to be automatically withdrawn?
A – If your loan payment drafted in the past this service will continue. There is nothing that you are required to do at this time. September and subsequent payments will be drafted no later than the next scheduled draft date. If your payment did not draft in the month of August it will be drafted at a later date once the servicing transfer is complete. We will notify you accordingly. Please be assured that there will be no adverse credit reporting or action taken as a result of delays. Your patience is appreciated.
Q – What do I do if the mortgage payment I made by check to TBW for the period August 2009 has not yet cleared my bank account?
A– As a result of the transition of the servicing of the loans from TBW to Cenlar, some borrower checks/payments have been delayed in the forwarding from TBW to Cenlar. As soon as Cenlar is in receipt of your payment, you can be assured it will be applied to your loan promptly. It may take some time, but we will work with you to address this issue. Please be assured that we will properly account for all payments made to TBW. You will not be assessed a late fee as a result of any delay in payment processing during this transition period. In the event your payment is not properly applied to your mortgage balance, we will work with you to resolve any issues that occurred during the transition period, including waiving late charges when applicable and making appropriate adjustments to payment and credit records
What should I do now? Should I stop payment on my check? Should I send you a new check?
Please don’t do anything right now. We are working to resolve this issue and still hope to be able to process your check in the normal course. As we mentioned above, you will not be assessed a late fee as a result of any delay in payment processing during this transition period. In the event your payment is not properly applied to your mortgage balance, we will work with you to resolve any issues that occurred during the transition period, including waiving late charges when applicable and making appropriate adjustments to payment and credit records.
