well I'm starting to wonder if they are actually releasing the Liens. They don't have to. Some people have been reporting that the banks have been issuing 1099c then selling the Liens to other companies who try to collect on them
I decided to give them a call again today and check to see if a Lien Release had ever been processed on my loan. I talked to a rep who looked up my account and said no but it should have been done by now and put me on hold. she then transferred me to a lady named Gaby who identified herself as a lien release specialist. She told me that my loan had been closed more than 90 days with a 1099 and apologized for the delay in the release. She then said she was going to put in for an expedited lean release with her legal department and it should be done in 15 days or less. I asked how I would know if it got done and she gave me a direct phone line to contact here in in about 5 days to get a reference or docket number. She said with that I could search the county records and request a copy of the final release for my records.
So it seems that this is all going to end shortly for me.
