Generally, a “satisfaction of mortgage” is all that would be required. But it may depend upon your state. A call to a local title company, lawyer or the county clerk’s/recorder’s office should get you a definitive answer.
How do I release a second mortgage - Posted by Mike T.
Posted by Mike T. on May 21, 2001 at 08:32:40:
I took back a second mortgage when I sold a property a couple of years ago.
The buyer and I negotiated a discounted payoff, but I don’t know how to officially the debt. I know there are standard mortgage release forms, but what else would I need to release the mortgage?
Any help is appreciated.
