I applied for a housing loan to help me and my mother pay off the remaining balance of the condo unit we purchased. The only problem I currently have is that the bank found out that I have gotten into a lawsuit. I'm the defendant. So now the bank is asking for a court clearance to prove that the case has been dismissed.
And so I asked the lawyer who helped me with the case on the process of getting a court clearance. Basically the lawyer told me to go to the court where the case was filed. And so I went. After going to the court, I then asked for a court clearance. They searched for the documents regarding my case and unfortunately, the case has not been dismissed, and so I cannot get a court clearance.
What I recall from the clerk was that I need to get a letter of satisfaction or notice of dismissal to be filed for my case. I asked then where to get it, and the clerk said that the document has to be filed by the plaintiff.
Now, I've asked the plaintiff respectfully to submit the letter of satisfaction or notice of dismissal. But then, they refused to help me and said that I should sort it out. I wanted to say, that's what I'm trying to do right now. Sort it out.
The lawsuit I got is a breach of contract with my previous employer, and this has been settled. I have a copy of the compromise agreement(although I have to look for this document again) and the decision(soft copy). I have a quit claim, but it tells me that the company does not have any further liability on my end.
So now, I'm not sure how else I can get a court clearance, since plaintiff doesn't want to cooperate with my request. However I'm thinking of going back to the court to double check if these documents have been indeed filed after the settlement.
Appreciate your advice.
