What if my loan is a 2nd Deed of Trust and sometime during this process the 1st Deed of Trust records a Notice of Default?

The process is the same for that Notice of Default. The borrower, or current owner has 3 months plus 21 days to reinstate or payoff the loan. After discussion with legal or tax counsel, it is usually prudent to bring this senior loan current. This advance to a senior can be included in your payoff amount. While you should make attempts to contact the lender, it requires time and patience. We suggest contacting the lender after obtaining a Loan Number, to obtain information or amounts that may be required to bring the loan current (out of default) or to pay if off.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find out if property taxes are paid as well as fire insurance? And should I pay those?

A quick telephone call to the Tax Collector’s office can tell you if taxes are current. To find out about insurances may take investigating if you are not listed as an additional insured on an existing policy. Possibly you are receiving notices from the insurance company and have contact information; maybe you can ask the owner of the property; or if you suspect there is no insurance it might be wise to place your own and have us make note of it as an advance to protect your interest.

Generally, we would recommend payment. Advances by the lender to pay taxes and insurance are allowable and chargeable to the borrower.
