“Do I have to continue making My Mortgage Payment?”

     “Do I have to continue making My Mortgage Payment?”

 

 

Hi Joe,

I have a buyer for my house and I just signed for an offer on the Quasset house!

My question is do I still make a mortgage payment for my present one?

Lee Ann

 

I panicked when I read the question. Rather than email I called back immediately. I asked her why she would think that she didn’t have to make any additional mortgage payments. She told me that her neighbor was in the process of refinancing and was told by the loan officer that they didn’t have to make any more mortgage payments.

 

I told her to immediately contact her neighbor and instruct them to ignore this STUPID advice and make sure that all payments were made on time.

 

Unfortunately I have seen many examples of the kind of STUPID advice and many borrowers actually follow the recommendation. It sounds wonderful that no more payments are required, but bad things always happen. Always remember the old adage, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
