Your mortgage company should provide our office with a Satisfaction of Mortgage to be recorded in the Official Records of Orange County, Florida. You may contact us at (407) 836-5115 to request a search of your Satisfaction of Mortgage. You may also utilize our web site (www.occompt.com) to see if your Satisfaction has been recorded.
Your Satisfaction is recorded under the names of the borrower/mortgagor on the original loan. If your Mortgage was an assumed loan, the Satisfaction will list names of the original borrower(s)/mortgagor(s)–not the current borrower(s)/mortgagor(s).
If it has been more than six (6) weeks since you paid off your loan and we are unable to locate your recorded Satisfaction, you will need to contact your mortgage company.
Florida Statue 701.04 Cancellation of mortgages, liens, and judgments.—(1) Within 14 days after receipt of the written request of a mortgagor, the holder of a mortgage shall deliver to the mortgagor at a place designated in the written request an estoppel letter setting forth the unpaid balance of the loan secured by the mortgage, including principal, interest, and any other charges properly due under or secured by the mortgage and interest on a per-day basis for the unpaid balance. Whenever the amount of money due on any mortgage, lien, or judgment shall be fully paid to the person or party entitled to the payment thereof, the mortgagee, creditor, or assignee, or the attorney of record in the case of a judgment, to whom such payment shall have been made, shall execute in writing an instrument acknowledging satisfaction of said mortgage, lien, or judgment and have the same acknowledged, or proven, and duly entered of record in the book provided by law for such purposes in the proper county. Within 60 days of the date of receipt of the full payment of the mortgage, lien, or judgment, the person required to acknowledge satisfaction of the mortgage, lien, or judgment shall send or cause to be sent the recorded satisfaction to the person who has made the full payment. In the case of a civil action arising out of the provisions of this section, the prevailing party shall be entitled to attorney’s fees and costs.
