General Information

A Notice of Payment Change allows a mortgage holder to advise the court that there has been a change in the debtor's mortgage payment. The Notice of Payment Change must be filed at least 21 days before the new payment amount is due.

The Motion for Determination of Fees, Expenses or Charges event can be used to file a challenge to a Notice of Payment Change. If there is no claim on file relating to the mortgage in question, the Objection event should be used instead.
