Premium Capital Funding, LLC dba TopDot Mortgage - Retail, Commercial - Agency, FHA
"At this time, Topdot is not accepting or processing mortgage applications. We hope to resume our business activities in the near future. Please check back regularly for updates."
A source that contacted us reported the company's remaining lending operations shut down as of the end of last week (2010-02-05) and "all employees in origination" had been let go. We were unable to reach anyone with the company via phone; most of the numbers listed on their web site are now inoperable, ring unanswered or are routed to voicemail.
Previous Ailing/Watch List entry - 2010-01-25: The press release from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development pretty much says it all:
Based in Jericho, NY, Premium Capital Funding, LLC dba TopDot Mortgage is known for it's "Mortgage News Update" TV Ads. The company's loan originations averaged more than $76 million per month in 2008. According to the web site (view cached, the company maintains "9 branch locations and [is] licensed to originate loans in 29 states."
Information is still coming in and we have no specifics on how this will affect the business going forward or how many employees may face losing their jobs. Older records from Dunn & Bradstreet indicate there were 250 employees at the company's headquarters in Jericho, NY.
National Mortgage News reported the company was "still in business originating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans" but said "late last week rumors were circulating that TopDot was about to lay off a large chunk of its staff in Long Island."

Important: This company is on our list of lending operations that have "imploded". However, please note that "imploded" is a somewhat subjective and does not necessarily mean operations are ceased permanently: it can mean bankruptcy filing, temporary but open-ended halting of major operations, or "firesale" acquisition. All information here is provisional, and may contain inaccuracies (especially newer information). If you are planning on doing business with this company or any other one listed on this site, you should inquire with them directly on whether they can still meet your needs. Many are still operating in some capacity.
