Crystal Knuth, Home Owner in 07733

My mortgage was sold many times over the years, how can i find out who my first lender was? Does the life insurance policy follow the mortgage sales?

Deb's answer is probably your most efficient way to find out who held your original note. You could also ask your real estate broker, if you used one, because some of the companies have ways to scan and save these documents for you forever. Coldwell Banker uses a system called HomeBase which is a secure online tool that agents, clients, attorney's etc that are involved with that particular transaction can access to see all the documents of their transaction.
As for your life insurance, I believe the individual is insured for what they intended to insure. If you took out a policy when you closed that some insurers call mortgage insurance (term insurance), it most likely was for the amount of your loan and insured you and whomever else was on the note. You would have to look at the policy and see how it was worded.

County clerk office will have mortgage info. Monmouth county clerk's website has it all at your fingertips. I am sure that life insurance does not follow mortgage

Your original note probably appears online. Monmouth County has an Open Public Records System. You can search recorded mortgages there.

You can check your documents from when you closed on your house or call your attorney or title company. If all else fails you can go to the hall of records in your town and look it up.I don't think your life insurance has any relation to your mortgage but your homeowners insurance company definitely does

You'll also have that information in your closing documents from your attorney.
