Dear Sirs: So sorry- not sure what is going on with the JustAnswer -website- I tried to send an email to reset my password XXXXX they said it was sent, but I never received it. It also states above this a Pay for service website ( I filled out all the payment info) and that I needed to click on 3rd,4th, or 5th face or the star below, but there isn't anything other than this reply box not sure how to proceed- thank you! Dave
Thanks- sorry! Kind of a rookie at this.. do you mean can I scan the document and send it to you?
Hello Fred! Thank you for your time thus far on this. I don't have a working scanner right now, but the notarized document was recorded and blue-ink stamped by my county. I would really love to stay anonymous as well, if at all possible. I tried to detail the wording of the document in my -opening request to ask your opinion. It is a very short, basic document
" LOST MORTGAGE SATISFACTION"
State of South Carolina RMC office recorded 12-5-2007
County of Beaufort Page 0639,etc.(this was my orig.
The debt secured by the mortgage referenced above is paid in full and the lien of the instrument identified above is satisfied. the Register of Mesne Conveyance/Clerk of the Court/register of Deeds,as applicable,is hereby authorized to enter this cancellation on the record
WITNESS my/your hand this 1-22-2013
then it is signed by the Bank of Am rep & the notary
the second page simply is the notary stating that this day, the Bank of Am rep appeared before me and being duly sworn,etc, states that the rep has concluded that the original mortgage has been lost and can't be found
That is pretty much it, Fred. Would you take that to mean they have abandoned any claim to the property and are just probably going to write it off? Thanks so much- Dave in SC
Thank you so much Fred- please let me know you got your fee for your input. Had 2 golf buddies ( one owned one of the largest mortgage companies in the Southeast and the other was Corp VP of another rival bank of Bank Of AM) who both echoed what you said. I am just getting a few
experts opinions before I proceed with anything further. Thanks again-Dave in SC
