Hey, Marie! We are sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, federal banks allow financial institutions to sell mortgages and service rights to other institutions without the consumer's consent. However, the terms and conditions of the contract don't change even if the loan is sold. This means that interest rate, payment amount, and loan type remain the same and the only thing that changes is the address you send the payments to.
