@Cathy McCormick I'm not sure if you've resolved this or not but I'm not sure why it matters if it was recorded twice. As you say, both recordings have the same account number so the release from the mortgage company should cover both. At least that's how I would interpret it. Is the title office saying this is an issue?
@Anthony G Yes, if the duplicate recorded lien is not removed before the closing, the amount of the mortgage will be held in escrow until it is resolved. I have escalated this to the current servicer of that mortgage, and hope they can help me. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
@Cathy McCormick I think the right place to be asking about this is to the title company. The title company that closed the transaction is responsible for recording the items properly. The title company name and contact information should be on the closing paperwork that you signed. I would encourage you to not leave it up to the lender....it might take them a long time to get back with you. The title company should be more responsive.
@Andrew Postell Thanks, I'll look into that
