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 Notice of Payment Change is added to the claims register as a claims supplement, not to the docket, and can be viewed only by accessing the claims register. (The Notice of Payment Change will appear on the docket instead of the claims register if it is indicated during filing that no related claim has been filed.)

The Motion for Determination of Fees, Expenses or Charges event can be used to file a challenge to a Notice of Payment Change.
