Mortgage Payoffs FAQ

The payoff process is the same whether you have reached the maturity of your loan, or made additional payments throughout the life of your loan.

Once we have received and posted the final payment that will satisfy your mortgage loan, your account will automatically close. We will review the loan history and reimburse you for any overpayments (also called overages paid) within 60 days from the date the account is closed.

Congratulations on nearing this milestone! We want this process to be as simple as possible for you.

There are specific ways to make your final payment to pay off your mortgage. To ensure a smooth payoff process, please choose a payoff payment option below.

  1. Pay with a money order, cashier’s check, bank wire, or other certified instrument unless a title company is remitting funds for you. This is very important. It enables us to verify and record your last payment and include it with all the other documents that validate the fulfillment of your mortgage loan. We cannot accept other types of payment, so if you are using AutoPay, bill pay service through your bank, or have pending payments, please call Customer Service at 1-800-643-0202 so we can help you prepare to make your final, authenticated payoff payment.
  2. Send your payoff payment to ditech. Use one of these 3 delivery options for payoff.
    1. MAIL your payoff money order, cashier’s check or other certified payment to this address, if you choose regular U.S. Post Office service or USPS Overnight Mail.

      DEPT CH 9052
      PALATINE IL, 60055-9052

    2. OVERNIGHT your payoff money order, cashier’s check or other certified payment to this address, if you choose FedEx, UPS, or another overnight service (other than USPS).

    3. WIRE or TRANSFER your payoff payment to the following account, using the following information*:

After your account is closed, ditech begins another process—the mortgage satisfaction and release process. This process includes, but is not limited to, returning to you the documents held as security on the account. Until this release, a document custodian holds these loan documents. A document custodian is an independent third party that holds financial documents in a secure facility outside ditech.

Once the custodian returns loan documents to you and ditech, we publicly confirm the closing of the mortgage. Ditech creates and signs a Satisfaction of Mortgage document specifically for your account. We record the Satisfaction of Mortgage document with the County Clerk where the property is located.  The County Clerk then returns the recorded Satisfaction of Mortgage to ditech.  If you are interested in a copy of the Satisfaction of Mortgage document when it becomes available, you can request one from the County Clerk or from ditech.

Factors outside our control, such as delays at the County Clerk’s office, may result in a longer payoff process.

Your principal balance and payoff balance disclose different information.

Principal balance is the outstanding balance of debt on a loan, which does not include interest or other charges. The payoff balance is the principal balance plus interest due, outstanding fees and possibly a pre-payment penalty (if applicable).

Your loan may have multiple collateral documents. Ditech mails mortgage release documents directly to the county for recording. We mail these payoff documents within the time period required by applicable law, which is typically no more than 30 to 60 days from the date the payoff is posted to the account. Unless instructed otherwise, title documents will be released and sent to the mailing address on the account.

Refunds are generally released 20 days after the loan is paid in full unless an earlier date is required by applicable law.

Some accounts include a pre-payment penalty clause. Please review your loan documents to determine if your loan will be assessed a pre-payment penalty for early payoff.
