What is a successor in interest?

A successor in interest is someone who has an ownership interest in real estate property as a result of a transfer from an original borrower/owner.

You may qualify as a successor in interest if the property was transferred to you:

  • As a surviving heir, due to the death of a relative or property co-owner
  • From a living spouse or parent
  • As a result of a divorce or legal separation
  • As part of a living trust

Successor in Interest Benefits

If your interest in the property is confirmed, M&T Bank will consider you a successor in interest and may provide you with additional access to the mortgage loan when the primary or co-borrower(s) are no longer receiving statements or letters referenced below.

This access includes:

  • Mortgage billing statements
  • Escrow statements
  • Future notifications required by law
  • Other potential mortgage loan options (e.g. loss mitigation, assumption)
