Date of Complaint: July 16, 2020
Company Official Name: UNITED SERVICES AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION
Sub-Product: VA mortgage
Issue: Closing on a mortgage
I applied for a VA mortgage with USAA on XX/XX/2020. I am a XXXX XXXX XXXX veteran with a XXXX XXXX old. We were planning to move from XXXX, XXXX to XXXX, XXXX due to a recent job I had gotten after being laid off in XXXX when Covid-19 hit. We were due to close on XX/XX/2020 Everything was going well until about XX/XX/XXXX, when I had not heard anything from the USAA mortgage processing team for over 2 weeks and had not received word that the appraiser had been ordered. So, after calling and emailing the processor all morning, he quickly replied that he needed a different version of my XXXX because he never even got around to securing the Certificate of Eligibility ( COE ) necessary for him to even order the appraisal. After I sent him the XXXX, he failed to reply to my standards so I secured a COE on my own via the VA eBenefits website and sent it to him. He ordered the appraisal on XX/XX/XXXX … one week before we were contractually set to close.
This processors name is XXXX XXXX, his senior is XXXX XXXX, and their manager is XXXX XXXX.
I did not hear back from XXXX or his team all week until about Friday morning XX/XX/2020 when XXXX said the appraiser would have his report turned in by that evening. This would allow us to close on the XXXX.
Monday morning, XX/XX/XXXX, I receive a call from my agent saying there has been no confirmation that the appraiser ever scheduled to appear on Friday. I call and email XXXX only to find out he is on ” vacation ” until XX/XX/XXXX … the day after we are due to close. I start proceeding to fix this issue with XXXX and XXXX who do not reply to over a dozen voicemails and emails from myself or my agent until Tuesday XX/XX/XXXX … less than 24 hours when we are supposed to close.
XXXX and XXXX offer no timeline, no status updates, etc. Only that ” they are working on it. ” I was not told that the closing date would change until the evening of XX/XX/XXXX … 12 hours before we were supposed to close.
Now, my family is homeless. My wife and son sleep in a basement while I sleep on a floor or couch as we are told of more delays by USAA and the appraiser because ” they technically have X amount of days to complete this document or that document ”. We have no idea where the process is or whether or not we will actually be able to close on the home if we are forced to extend with the sellers again.
USAA never secured a COE USAA never ordered the appraisal USAA never offered to house my family despite their fault of rendering us homeless USAA never said ” We are sorry ” USAA has not updated me on the current status unless I reach out to them first.
USAA is not taking my mortgage seriously USAA is endangering my family ‘s welfare while allowing people to take vacations and days off after knowingly failing to uphold their end of the contract.
