You can try to sue HUD and the mortgage companies involved in what is known as a declaratory judgment action for a court order that states that based on your evidence showing your history of payments [or any evidence you can get from the lenders or HUD through litigation discovery] you only owe XYZ amount as of this date and that all future balance dues are to be calculated based on this figure.

So, without written documentation to support your payment history, when you file the declaratory judgment action, you will be permitted to testify that you made payments during this time and also support your testimony by showing any written proof you may have from old bank records or tax returns where you took an interest deduction. The lender will not be able to provide any contradictory testimony or proof [or not much anyways] as it appears to be the case from what you are saying. Thus, it will be a "he said -she said" credibility match that you may likely win.
