If you bought a house and the seller was holding a second note which was paid

It has been 18 years and seller never filed any Liens or judgements. Only has a letter they sent dated 2001. Refinancing and the lender asked that we get a release from them. by Daves59220489 from , California. Nov 5th 2019 Reply

They most likely recorded the second trust deed against the title of the property, and they also likely didn't realize they needed to reconvey the trust deed once it's been paid off. You just need to reach out to them and ask for them to record the reconveyance. If it was a mortgage lender, they'd do it automatically, but usually charge you about $20 for preparation + however much it costs to record. The title company handling the transaction should be able to assist. Feel free to reach out if you need further info.Shane Milne | Lending in all 50 states | NMLS #81195 |
