Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
The proper assignment must be recorded or Ocwen has no standing on your loan. How can I find out who has my loan documents; when I look on the new Ocwen website it says that loan documents are unavailable at this time. How can I find out who has my deed? Is saying "as assigns," sufficient re: transferring a deed and ownership of the mortgage from one company to another?You will want to check with the county recorder's office. Which county is your property located in?
It's located in Wake County. I have my original deed, I'm just wondering if subsequent paperwork should have been filed each time my loan was sold and if I should have received a new deed showing each new lender?
Sorry for the delay the site kicked me off. Thank you for your patience.
There would not be a new deed recorded. There must be an assignment of mortgage recorded each time a new lender is assigned the loan. The way to check this is with the recorder of deeds office.
This information is available on line through the Wake County Register of Deeds at
Great! Thank you. I appreciate your help! Hope you have a goodnight.
Sure! Thanks again.
Your most welcome, thank you! I've been searching the Wake County Records and it appears nothing was recorded since I purchased the property in 2007. I'm going downtown tomorrow to get copies of everything. I just signed up for Unlimited Questions, so I may be back in contact for more advice. Thanks again. Leslie! I appreciate your giving me the link to records. That was a big help!
Okay, thanks, I will, Leslie. Hope you have a goodnight! - Kate
