What do I need to do after I pay off my house mortgage.

After the mortgage company receives the last payment, they will send a cancellation to record in our office. We file the cancellation in our land records, stamp the recorded mortgage “CANCELLED” and return the recorded cancellation to the mortgage company. The mortgage company should then in turn mail the cancellation and the original mortgage document to you signifying payment in full of the mortgage.
