in the amount of $5,325.20 to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Colonial was not notified of this transaction. Per Federal Housing Administration (FHA) guidelines, partial claim notes become due and payable when their related FHA-insured mortgages are terminated. On December 4, 2015, HUD notified us that the partial claim note dated August 29, 2005 in the amount of $5,325.20 was still outstanding and demanded full payment from Colonial, along with the incentive funds in the amount of $500.00. At that time, Colonial disbursed funds to HUD as requested in the total amount of $5,825.20 (Exhibit A). We have also attached the endorsement allonge to the note, showing the noteholder transfer from HUD to Colonial (Exhibit B). On July 27, 2016 and October 25, 2016, Colonial requested this payment from Ms. [redacted] (Exhibit C). Ms. [redacted] notified Colonial of her payment to HUD, and we requested HUD to research the payment. As a result, on November 17, 2016, HUD verified that they had received payment back in February of 2014 to satisfy the partial claim, and funds in the amount of $5,325.20 were returned to Colonial.At this time, we consider the full amount of $5,825.20 to be paid in full, and Ms. [redacted] is not required to pay these funds. The amount of $5,325.20 has been received from HUD, and the additional $500.00 has been cleared from the account balance. We have verified that Colonial has not negatively reported Ms. [redacted] to the credit reporting agencies during this time. Colonial encourages Ms. [redacted] to contact HUD to request further information regarding their credit reporting procedures. We certainly apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.Should you have any questions regarding this request, our representatives are available to assist you Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm CT by calling [redacted].Sincerely,Customer Advocacy TeamEnclosure(s): Exhibit A – Check for $5,825.20 from Colonial to HUD dated 12.4.15Exhibit B – Endorsement Allonge to NoteExhibit C – Demand Letters dated 7.27.16 and 10.25.16

Revdex.com:
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted], and have determined that this does not resolve my dispute.
Please enter your reason(s) for rejecting the business response below.The issue has never been about the amount the payments, or if the notice was mailed (which I have no way of disputing), but rather that because I was in the process of changing my mailing address, the mail was not forwarded and I did not receive notice.  As soon as I received the notice, I promptly paid the past due amount, but it was already 30 days past due and the credit mark had been replaced.  I do not see how it is equitable for me to be penalized when I did not receive the notice.  Just as I cannot prove the letter was mailed, they cannot prove that I received it.  I feel I was unjustly penalized, when it was clear what had happened (paid a prior amount +/-$50 short), but was not contacted until after 30 days.  I have never been late with a payment and now an honest mistake, which was promptly cured, has cost me dearly on my credit score.  I would appreciate additional consideration given the unusual circumstances and lack of proof of mail receipt/delivery.

[redacted]

We are in receipt of your correspondence from the Revdex.com, received in our office onJuly 24, 2015. After reviewing the information provided, we have prepared the following response.Per our records, you received a solicitation letter from our corporate office offering the possibility...

to doa streamline refinance on your FHA loan. This letter resulted in contact being made with ColonialNational Mortgage to pursue this option. After consideration, we were advised that you would like topursue a Conventional loan because of an anticipated property appraisal value of $400,000.00, whichyou felt would eliminate the need to have mortgage insurance.To provide an idea of the value range in which your home may be valued prior to the actual appraisalbeing ordered, the realtor who was involved in the purchase of this property provided examples ofcom parables that could be used in determining the current value of your home. After the value range of$365,000.00 was determined, we were advised to move forward with the appraisal process.The appraisal performed on your property on April 1 7, 2015 resulted in an appraised value of$339,000.00. The comparables reflected in an appraisal report are not required to be an exact match infeatures and construction as the property being evaluated. The comparables in this appraisal report wereproperties within your neighborhood that most closely resembled the features and location of yourproperty, as there were no properties with the exact construction of your home.The information listed in the Prior Sales or Transfers History section of the Sales Comparison Analysispage of the appraisal reflects only sales or transfers of ownership of the comparable properties thatoccurred prior to the most recent sale or transfer. The information listed in this section does not affectthe outcome of the appraisal but only provides additional information to the lender on what hashappened in the past with the comparable properties.It is our practice to allow a borrower who is not satisfied with the appraised value of their home toappeal the outcome of the appraisal. When we were notified that you would like to appeal the appraisedvalue of $339,000.00, we obtained the comparables and information used in determining the value ofyour property from your current realtor and submitted this information to the Chief Appraiser forreview. The information was re-evaluated and determined to be valid.Should you have any additional questions, representatives are available to assist you Monday throughFriday, 8:00am to 5:00pm CT by calling ###-###-####.

We have received your most recent correspondence in our office on November 23, 2016.  After reviewing the account, we have prepared the following response.On May 18, 2016, we received a request from Ms. [redacted] to establish an escrow account on her mortgage. On June 21, 2016, we replied...

advising that no escrow items can be due within 90 days and we were unable to establish escrow due to delinquent taxes outstanding on the property (Exhibit A). On July 7, 2016, we received a second request which included the same information and an outstanding tax bill. On September 2, 2016 and October 14, 2016, Ms. [redacted] contacted Colonial to determine the status of the request. On both occasions, Colonial failed to respond in a timely manner. At this time, Colonial has researched the account and determined that taxes have been paid through May 2017 and no payments are due within the next 90 days. To initiate an escrow account, a deposit in the amount of $3,111.68 is required by January 4, 2017. We have attached a letter explaining the projections for 2017 as well as instructions for sending the initial deposit (Exhibit B). Colonial does not escrow for homeowners’ association (HOA) fees, as Ms. [redacted] HOA lien is subordinate to the lien held by Colonial. Ms. [redacted] will remain responsible for these fees.  Should you have any questions regarding this request, our representatives are available to assist you Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm CT by calling [redacted]. thank you,
