Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
This means that for whatever reason, the lender has forgiven the remaining outstanding amount and transferred the property back to mother (i.e. her estate).
So I can't opine why they would do so, but apparently they have agreed to wipe out any mortgage meaning that they no longer have any legal claim to the property.
I would suggest having a local real estate attorney or title/closing company do a "title search" on the property to confirm that there is no outstanding liens or mortgages on it and that there is no pending legal action just to be sure.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
And if the title search is not showing anything, then the property should be free and clear..
