  • To obtain the status of current turn times for GRH Conditional Commitments and Loan Note Guarantees, please call 919-873-2060. This recording is updated daily as the current turn times change. Please check the recording prior to calling or emailing for a status update.
  • Please limit all calls and e-mails to those that are essential in order to allow us to work on issuing conditional commitments with minimal interruptions. Due to the large volume of calls that we receive, only the 1980-21 Point of Contact (POC) or the Underwriter should be calling on any file.
  • As an approved lender it is your responsibility to submit a fully complete and correct package. Incomplete submission packages will be withdrawn after 3 business days of Lender notification by a staff member if corrected documents are not received within the timeframe. You can then re-submit the full package to us for processing as a new submission. Please refer to the Origination Stacking Order Checklist (Attachment C) and the Loan Closing Stacking Order Checklist (Attachment D) for a listing of documents that constitute a complete and correct package.
