Im seeking to take over the property per my recent phone converstion with Ocwen they requested a death certificate befor a representive can assist me. I sent the death certificate Oct 24,2012 asking for a loan modification so the interest on the said property is congruent with the going intrest rate. The present bal is $70,434 Int.rate 8.85% and the monthly payment $573.80.
I checked the county records and the current mkt. value total is $32,670
