Assignment of Mortgage


More Info
									This is an agreement whereby the lender of a mortgage transfers all of its rights and
responsibilities to a new lender. The borrower does not change and its rights and
responsibilities remain the same under this agreement. The new lender assumes the
role of the original lender by receiving payments and has the power to foreclose on the
property, if necessary. It contains both standard clauses as well as opportunities for
customization to ensure that the understandings of the parties are properly set forth.
This document is ideal for lenders that want to purchase or sell a mortgage on a specific
piece of property.
