American Home Mortgage

I have an American Hm Mtg  issue they won't issue the HAFA approval until CITI (2nd mtg) gives them theirs and CITI wants AHM's first.  No one will issue letter first. I tried to get a conditional letter, but neither will go first.  Any suggestions or contact I can call?

All of BofA changes make sense and so does all of their new documents. I totally understand why BofA is now requiring only licensed professionals or attorneys to be the authorized third party reps for the homeowner.

I know I am going to…
