H.B. 2763, as amended, would establish that all mortgages recorded after January 1, 1965, if 42 years have elapsed and the owner of the mortgage has not filed the appropriate affidavit, will be released by law.
In the 1997 Session, the Legislature established the automatic extinction of a mortgage after 32 years unless certain affidavits were filed by the owner of the mortgage. H.B. 2763, as amended, extends the period from 32 years to 42 years to accommodate certain mortgages discovered to have terms beyond 32 years.
A fiscal note was not available at the time of the Committee action.
