I've recorded the points under the 1098 for the original lender, but what do I put for the "Tell us about any points paid to..." the second lender? Technically the choice "No points were paid for this loan" is not accurate because it's the same loan, but I already recorded the points under the previous lender. What do I check here for the new/current lender to whom the loan was sold?
2. Again, for the new/current lender, "Is this the original loan you took out to purchase the property?," do I say yes because it's still the original loan, just different company, or do I say no because it's not the company with whom I took out the original loan?
The sale of your loan from one lender to another should not affect any of the terms of your original loan as long as you did not make any changes to the loan. You should only be concerned about the address you send your payments to --that most likely will change.
