Just when you think it's safe to open the mail...

TWO DAYS AGO we received a piece of mail that made our hearts sink into our stomachs. Why? It was from ReconTrust. Remember them? They're the ones that sent us a million foreclosure notices. Here.

First of all, what kind of name is that? ReconTrust? Really? It's suspicious to begin with. It sort of sounds like "We can trust" which makes me think, "No. No, no. We cannot trust ReconTrust." Or reconnaissance. Which is "a military term denoting the exploration used to gain information." So that makes me think we're being spied on by a company that feels the need to put the word 'trust' in their name.

But seriously, what is the origin of this name?

Perhaps it comes from the FDIC's "Regional Economic Conditions" (RECON). But that doesn't quite fit.

Well, regardless the name alone still incites shivers, stomach flip flops and light-headedness. So what was it this time?

It was an official notarized document called SUBSTITUTION OF TRUSTEE AND FULL RECONVEYANCE.


Here. This:

Ah, yes... the Substitution of Trustee and Full Reconveyance. Of course. Not really. We had no idea what this was. But we assumed it meant bad news. Because anything from ReconTrust has been bad news. Does this mean that National City is coming after us?

Well, hang on. Let's break this down. According to Websters online dictionary, the word 'reconvey' is a transitive verb that means:

1. To transfer back to a former owner; as, to reconvey an estate.

Oh. Well, that sounds... like good news. Right? Perhaps? I mean, we wouldn't have been able to have sold the house had their still been a lien. So this is really just a formality, it seems.

I visit ReconTrust's FAQ page to learn this:

What is a Lien Release?

When a home loan is paid off, a Lien Release is recorded with the county. A lien release document transfers title from a trustee or beneficiary (e.g., the lender) to the equitable owner (e.g., the borrower) of the real estate when the debt is satisfied (or paid off) under the terms of a deed of trust or mortgage. Every state uses a different name for the Lien Release Document, e.g., Satisfaction, Release, Discharge, or Substitution of Trustee and Full Reconveyance. No matter what it’s called, the lien release document has the same purpose: to release the lien of public record.

So, it is good news I suppose. It is a lien release document. But seriously, every state has a different name for it? Why? To keep us on our toes?

Does this mean that National City isn't going to try to collect on the difference? That the debt is satisfied? I don't know. We were told that they are waiting up to three years after a short sale to go after the difference. But that's another story.

For now, we'd just be happy to never receive another piece of mail from ReconTrust ever again. Let's hope this is the last.

I like happy mail. What about you? What is the best piece of mail you've received lately?

Question: Was the substitution of trustee and full reconveyance document what you thought? Did Recon Trust release your lien? Curious...

Well, I am in the State of Maryland, and went through Bankruptcy Chapter 7 and foreclosure-Through wihich courts gave the house as satisfaction of the debt. Of course there was a first and second compliments of Countrywide sold to Bank of America and the names kept changing of who was sending the next letter. over 3 years have gone by and now the letter comes from ReconTrust in Arizona, signed Thank you for your business providing me with a duplicate release of lien stating your lien is released but your debt remains in full force and effect. So much for getting a letter to remove yourself from the property when in arrears and you move obediently and send the keys to the banks attorneys with all of the descriptions and directions as to all of the amenities of the property(everything new and beautiful) for fast facilitation of their sale. They let the grass grow and the county fined me and sent notices for daily fines to be recorded and as I moved out into a crackhouse basement as where could I go.... and still had to go there with a weedwacker in tears to try to alieviate more debts.. I am still waiting for the LOVE in the time of foreclosure...........(I have lived in 7 places in 4 years -sometimes even my car- and essentially cut myself off from anyone and everyone). I have a post office box so I can still receive all these lovely threatening letters that never stop although I have been essentially homeless for the last 4 years . Thinking I did all the right things in my time of troubles to give them the keys immediately.... they waited 2 years for the sale, allowed the basement sump pump with the battery backup to burn out and beautiful all new everything in the house filled with mold. So, I did what they said and they destroyed the property and I am still getting the letters although someone else has since moved into the house 2 years ago. They told the neighbors they own it.... UH... so they waited to record all releases three years to avoid the bankruptcy statute?.... (hunkered down here in the tornado cellar ... carefully opening the P.O. Box for the next assault-can't work-can't function-don't want to answer any phones ever. Would sign up for the next trip to Mars but Bank of America would have a subsidiary Company on the trip reconning info-) I know why people go crazy!... I am there-I have lived in places with no water-with stopped up pipes- with people picking the locks and coming in while I was working miscellaneous part time jobs to just live.. The bankruptcy court valued my car at thousands of dollars and it stopped working after the discharge and I could only get 500. for it, it needed a major expensive repair-cheaper to apply to 25 banks and get a car loan which of course I had to work an additional part time job to pay for it.
You could read my book about where you go when you have no place to go... but I can't publish it because someone might track me down..........
