What’s next after you pay off your mortage?

Are you on the brink of completing your mortgage payments?

Housing expenses typically dominate a family’s monthly budget, comprising an average of 16% of the total expenditure. Thus, reaching the milestone of paying off a home is undoubtedly a cause for celebration!

But what comes next?

Here’s what you can expect after paying off your mortgage:

  1. File a Satisfaction of Mortgage Statement: Following the final mortgage payment, your lender should furnish you with a Satisfaction of Mortgage Statement. If you haven’t received this document within a month, reach out to your lender for clarification. It’s crucial to file this statement with the county clerk’s office to officially record the satisfaction of your mortgage.
  2. Cancel Automatic Payments: Take proactive steps to terminate any automatic mortgage payments to prevent additional withdrawals from your account once the loan is fully paid off.
  3. Notify Insurance & Tax Authorities: Paying off your mortgage will result in the closure of your escrow account, through which insurance and property taxes are typically paid. Ensure that you contact your homeowner’s insurance provider and the relevant taxing authority to update your payment information, redirecting payments to the appropriate account.
