Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If the lender doesn't have a receivership or some third party administrator to handle things like this for you (you may want to check with your state's secretary of state and see if there's any officer or member that you could contact about signing a release), then the only thing you could do is file a lawsuit against the lender to remove cloud on your title.....you would have to name the lender as a party defendant and serve the registered agent or publish notice in the local newspaper if there is no longer a registered agent.

Once you get an order from the court, you can record that and the land records clerk can mark the loan as cancelled based on the authority given to the clerk via the court order.
