review

In XX/XX/XXXX , I obtained a Home Equity Loan wi th CitiFinancial now called OneMain. The contract was put on file with our county title an d deed office as a second mortgage securing the loan. After XXXX from the XXXX in XX/XX/XXXX , I began a career with XXXX XXXX . The money from this loan was used to pay {$10000.00} for training and lodging in XXXX Georgia with XXXX . I was hired in XX/XX/XXXX after completing the training and on XX/XX/XXXX ” XXXX XXXX ” I was laid off for 9 months. During this time of unemployment, I made every attempt to renegotiate the payments with the local branch manager. Pa yments were put on the back but I could not make them. Eventually, the manager invoked a Judgment Lien o n the home in XX/XX/XXXX . I was called back and laid off until in XX/XX/XXXX I decided to file for Chapter XXXX protection to prevent Foreclosure. I had XXXX previous failed Chapter XXXX because of lack of funding. I eventually was hospitalized for XXXX and became unemployable. In XX/XX/XXXX , my pay stabilized with my VA XXXX and I was able to make repairs to my home. In XX/XX/XXXX , I filed for CH XXXX to stop the collections, foreclosure and legal proceedings. The trustee required that I repay all debts at 100 % which was completed XX/XX/XXXX . During the repayment plan, XXXX XXXX XXXX bought the debt from CitiFinancial o f which I paid {$8900.00} of this debt. CitiFinancial did not respond to the filing at the XXXX meeting and did not get paid the $ XXXX that was left on the secured side of this loan. In XX/XX/XXXX , I received a letter from CitiFinancial/OneMain CONGRATULATING ME on the FORGIVING 2ND MORTGAGE DEBT and also issued a XXXX with the secured amount that was still outstanding. Probably thinking that I was going to have to claim this as income on my XX/XX/XXXX taxes. NOT! I reached out to my trustee ‘s office who in turn gave me the number to the IRS Insolvency Unit which is in the same Federal buil ding in XXXX . She informed me that I was insolvent and did not have to repay this debt. I requested my attorney to seek permission from the trustee to incur debt so I could pay my Chapter XXXX early and make home repairs with a VA CASH OUT REFI. The motion was approved and I proceeded to seek a lender that would approve me. XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX and XXXX were the XXXX lenders that I reached out to only to be denied. I asked why and the only answer I got was the fact that there was a lien on my title which prevented the loan from being approved. All other guidelines were met but that is what denied the loan. I reached out to the county title and deeds office and was informed that the 2nd mort gage was lien free and that there may have been an issue with computer systems that track these things being outdated. I decided to wait until XX/XX/XXXX when I was about to close o n my Chapter XXXX . When my case closed in XX/XX/XXXX , I began to consider the option of purchasing compared to a va refi-cashout for repairs. So in XX/XX/XXXX , I was given a discharge date from my attorney and began the process to purchase a home. XXXX and XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX are in the final stages of finalizing my closing for the home. Using the payment history during my Chapter XXXX and not missing any payments allowed me to be approved. Today, XX/XX/XXXX I received a call from the Title Company that is handling my loan stating that I have a Judgment an d Lien st ill enforced on my current property. After speaking to the woman, I informed her that this was impossible because this was removed from the title last year. After calling the County Ti tle and Deed Office the Lien was removed but the 2nd Mortgage and Judgment was still in place. I decided to use my attorney and get information. He informed me that since I had received the XXXX this debt was no longer enforceable by the judgment. I called CitiFinancial Bankruptcy/Recovery Department XXXX and was given the run around. This company failed to clear up the rest of the legalities after they FORGAVE the 2nd MORTGAGE and now I am paying for it in so many ways. If I lose this loan because of their failure to remove this judgment I will definitely loose it.
