If you are sitting in the seller’s living room, ask them to bring out their “house papers”.
With the coupon book in hand, call the lender’s customer service number. Have the Seller give them verbal authorization to talk with you (you’ll want to get written authorization before you leave and a PoA when you close). The lender will be able to tell you how much is required to bring the loan current.
