Just a quick post to keep folks up to date with the oddities that are the episodes of trying to remove the threat of foreclosure. (See Timing Good News Maybe for the prequel to this episode.)
Well, that was certainly a bit of bad weirdness. The mortgage mediator called to ask why I wasn’t at the meeting. Evidently, without telling me, they scheduled a meeting to discuss how, whether, and when I could pay my mortgage. The mediator was there. The mortgage representative was there. The attorney (?) was there. My counselor was there. I paid for the meeting, and yet they didn’t call to check my schedule. They didn’t send me an email, regular mail, or phone call. Now they are threatening to submit a notice of “not acting in good faith” because I didn’t show up for the meeting that I didn’t know about but did pay for. Is this something for the Attorney General?
At this point, I’m actually eager for a conversation in a business tone, but the dialog I receive continues to be defined by dismissive terms. I’m hoping for a re-scheduling, and I hope to be included in it. I’ve talked to many people who’ve been through this process and none of them suggest it will go smoothly, even though at its basics, this is just a matter of money.
