NetBank Inc., an Atlanta-based online bank, has reported a mortgage-related net loss of $1.4 million ($0.03 per share) for the third quarter, compared with net income of $4.0 million ($0.09 per share) a year earlier.NetBank said the results include a pretax provision of $3.5 million related to a group of conforming mortgages with an outstanding balance of $13 million. "The company believes certain misrepresentations may have been made by one or more of the parties involved during the loan application process," NetBank said. Mortgage production totaled $3.8 billion in the third quarter, a rise of 9.0% from that of the second quarter, the company reported. The performance of servicing assets went from a loss of $2.3 million in the second quarter to pretax income of $130,000 in the third quarter "as higher rates and improving valuations for mortgage servicing rights led to prior impairment expense recovery," NetBank said.
