Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

What did the notice order specifically state?

The Chase suit was involving mortgage manipulations and overpayment claims, so your home must have been under that suit. (Understand we do not have a crystal ball to see your specific details on your property). The check should also tell you if it is full payment or just a partial payment.

You have to give us some more information on this matter so we know what to tell you. Thank you.
