Consumer Complaint: I negotiated a settlement a XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX for a judgement against me from XXXX which resulted in a lien being placed against my property.
XXXX XXXX XXXX received payment in full on this settlement on XXXX XXXX, XXXX. I was told that within 30 days I would receive a satisfaction of judgement and that the lien would be released. In a letter I received from them on XXXX XXXX, XXXX they state : ” Upon receipt and clearance of your payment ( s ) for the settlement amount, no further attempts will be made to collect the remaining balance. XXXX XXXX XXXX will submit a request to the attorney of record, or its appointed entity, to file a satisfaction of judgement with the In The Metropolitan Court of XXXX XXXX, NM and release any lien ( s ) that may be associted with Docket XXXX. ” I have contacted XXXX XXXX XXXX multiple times requesting a status on the satisfaction of judgement and each time I ‘m given a different story and they refuse to product the document.
After 30 days they still have not issued the satisfaction of judgement and will not give me an answer as to when they will produce this document and remove the lien from my property.
