Our Lending Area

We offer affordable, fixed and adjustable rate loans to purchase 1-4 family homes, townhomes, condos, or PUDs (planned unit developments) in New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

Why Choose HVFCU for Financing?

  • Low rates
  • Free pre-approvals
  • Flexible financing options
  • Special programs for first-time homebuyers
  • All Mortgage Loan Officers are CMPS certified

Free Pre-approvals

The pre-approval process is typically quick and easy. It usually occurs before you even start shopping for a home. You will need to provide some simple information about your income and debts to determine approximately how much house you can afford. Your past credit history, job history, household income, and the property you want to finance all influence how much you can borrow.

In today’s fast-paced home-buying market, it is often required that you present documentation of a mortgage pre-approval when submitting an offer to purchase a home.

Rate Lock Disclosure

You may lock your interest rate, discount points, and term of loan at any time as described below up to three business days prior to your closing. Changes to your interest rate, discount points, and term (including loan amount and mortgage type) will not be permitted once you have chosen a Rate Lock Option. If you do not notify HVFCU to lock your interest rate and term, you will receive the prevailing rate three business days prior to your closing pursuant to the conditions above. You understand that interest rates and discount points are subject to change without notice and it is your responsibility to monitor HVFCU’s interest rates and loan terms during the period in which you choose to float.

If you choose to lock in your interest rate, you will be required to sign a Rate Lock Agreement. On signing, you agree to pay $600, which is refunded at closing. If a mortgage application with a signed Rate Lock Agreement is canceled at any time, the $600 is forfeited. In the absence of a signed Rate Lock Agreement you receive the prevailing rate three business days prior to closing.

If you are applying for a Construction/ Permanent Mortgage, or have subject property that is new construction, you may choose to sign a Rate Lock Agreement either prior to the permanent loan closing, or prior to 100% completion of the construction for the subject property. Construction must be 100% complete prior to the signed Rate Lock Agreement expiration date. Extended rate lock options are available. Please inquire for further information.

Appraisal Disclosure

Please be advised that the fee charged by HVFCU in connection with an appraisal of the property used to secure this transaction is NON-REFUNDABLE. Residential property values have experienced significant declines in recent years and may be subject to further decline. Any potential value discussed between you and HVFCU at or prior to the time of application for a mortgage should not be construed as a formal estimate of value for the property being financed. A formal opinion of value will be conducted by a professional appraisal firm which operates independently of HVFCU, and HVFCU employees are expressly prohibited from discussing or influencing the appraiser’s opinion of home values in any way.

City of Newburgh Water Department

Questions and Answers

If I have a question about my water bill, who do I call?

Questions related to billing regarding meter readings should be directed to the Water Department at 565-3356. For other calls related to billing — for example, past due amounts, penalties, etc. — please call the Tax Collector's Office at 569-7330









If I'm selling my house, do I need a closing reading?

Yes. A closing reading records the amount of water the present owner has used up to the date of closing and the amount the new owner will receive as credit towards their next bill. A closing reading also protects the new owner from any past due amounts that may be owed. The Water Department does a physical inspection of the water meter at closing to ensure that it is working properly and up to city code.

If I'm buying a house in the City, what should I do? Do I need a closing reading?

We strongly recommend that you call the Water Department to schedule a final reading of the water meter, so that as the new owner, your first bill will be credited for any amount of water used by the previous owner. At the time of closing, we also conduct a physical inspection to make sure that the meter is working properly and up to city code.
