Hello Cliff,

Nice to meet you.

I am sure your friend is quite happy!

The lender will provide a payoff for you good for 30 days. Make sure to pull title to be sure there are no other outstanding liens.

All the best!

How nice! Contact the lender for a payoff amount. You will need permission to speak with the lender from your friend.

It seems you might need to do a simple title research to know the mortgage remaining balance, current repayment policy, property tax and to make sure your friend is the legal and sole owner of the property. Some real estate information service website such as nextace.com allows you to search and download updated ownership information, even a copy of the deed.

Cliff: payoff balances are available for the borrower.
Call the current lender servicing the loan.
Social security number is required.
So..if you are trying to do this as a surprise, it may be diffcutl to surprise.

Your friend should be able to obtain that information 24/7.

You can pay mine, I will give you the information you need! ;) Oh, that's probably not what you meant, is it? As everyone said - your friend can provide you with this information. If you're trying to do it "secretively" you may wish to employ the help of a settlement company who can probably get a payoff for you.

Hello cliff, Have your friend call the lender and ask for a payoff balance on his loan. He will have to call being it is in his name. I am very sure if they will accept YOUR check though. HEHEHE. God bless you!!!! That's a big Random Act of Kindness!

Check public record to see how many loans/liens are on it, then get a third party authorization and then call the banks and ask for a pay off amount.

Any other questions, call me on my direct number @ 310-435-8179

Best regards,

You will have to call the tite company to find out which liens are on the property and in addition you need to call the bank and find out how much the balance is.

You would need to have the friend's loan number and/or a recent mortgage statement.
