Consumer Complaint: In XX/XX/2009we sold our home in XXXX Ca. The mortgage company said they would give us a no interest loan for the difference in the selling price of our home. We agreed to do it as I didn’t want to jump on the foreclosure bandwagon, that was happening at that time. Another reason I agree is there was no advisory language in the agreement, which meant to me that this would not be reported to any collection agency. The money amount on the Promissory notice is different from the written amount. The payment for the note was $1250.00. I paid $50,000 on this note for my mortgage at XXXX XXXX XXXX Then I lost my job after 34 years. XX/XX/went out of business in the real estate scandals that went on inXX/XX/2009 They sold the note to XXXXl, I contacted them in XX/XX/2012and told them about losing my job and offer a settlement after many emails I finally received a response and their answer was no, they would not except my offer. I went to an attorney and showed him the note and explained that was a note regarding my mortgage and I was told by the attorney that this note was illegal for many reason and that it was being report incorrectly, it was being reported as an account when it was actually a mortgage loan. I fought for years with XX/XX/XXXX in 2016 they sent me a notice saying that the debt is unenforceable due to the expiration of the applicable statute limitations. My husband was employed throughout this fiasco, I ask XX/XX/XXXX on several occasions to take this to court so we could deal with it legally, they choose not to do it. I believe it’s because they knew this was an unenforceable agreement. I am in the process of buying solar for my home and because of their derogatory mark on my credit and my Husband XX/XX/XXXX credit it is stopping us from purchasing it. I have written to the Credit Bureaus disputing this account and they will not remove it because XX/XX/XXXXl keeps saying it’s a debt owed to them. Our credit is perfect no missed payments, no collections, the only mark we have is for a contract that is unenforceable.
