Eric Odum tells the real life ongoing story about a borrower and a private lender, and the importance of ensuring that when a loan is paid off, that the mortgage satisfaction has actually been recorded. In this case, the borrower wanted to sell his property. However, although the borrower had paid off the mortgage to a private lender 16 years ago, and the lender supplied a satisfaction of mortgage to the borrower, it was never filed. The borrower did find the mortgage satisfaction document, but the title company said it was not sufficient satisfaction and they would need to issue a new document, and to make matters worse, the lender did not remember the transaction.
