A more practical answer, any agent or yourself or myself if you want me to, can go into Acris, the city register's website were all deeds and mortgages are recorded. Enter the block and lot of the building and search for documents recently registered for that building. Simply look at the banks doing the financing recently and apply to them? Takes 5 minutes.

The agent representing the apartment/building needs to do some foot work here. Better to get the building vetted with a handful of banks so it makes life a bit easier for the buyer. However, the consumer can try and do the same thing but it will come down to getting the agent to do some assisting here as the bank will have it's "check list of wants" to get the building approved.

My cap it tipped to Nick Rafello and Adina Greenberg, as they are both highly respected professionals in the New York City real estate business. I would have to say with the two HDFC building apartments that I have, that Chase Bank and Justin Keesey, Senior Loan Officer, has approved the buildings that I have at 7 West 92nd Street and at 504 West 135th Street, each an HDFC Coop, and each with its own identity and rules to have satisfied by the bank.

In my experience, the Bank may be able to make the loan happen, but it's also a function of the banker who is doing the loan.

All best wishes !!!

I have 4 listings in an HDFC building, both Citibank and BofA approved the building after submitting a lot of documents, financials and questionnaires. Chase bank in the past approved the same building and I am working with them to have the building re-approved.

Thank you all! If I asked it is because 3 major banks denied an apt I like with good financials because it was a HDFC. Since most of the apts in NYC I like and can afford are HDFC...

In addition to what Nick Rafello wrote below, Citibank, Bank of America and Chase bank finance HDFC buildings under certain conditions of course.

Great question, Sylvaine!

Having experience with HDFC buildings, I would say that your best bet would be to speak to an agent or a mortgage broker familiar with the building, since each one is different. Ideally, a co-op board member would be able to tell you which lenders have financed recent sales in the building.

Hope that helps.
