If a mortgagor takes the actions permitted under subsection a. of this section, the mortgagor shall: (1) Send a copy of the paid tax bill to the mortgagee or its servicing organization along with a notice that, pursuant to subsection a. of this section: (a) The mortgagor is no longer required to make payments into the mortgage escrow account; and (b) The mortgagor will make all future payments for property taxes, insurance and other charges with respect to the real property which secures the mortgage loan, and will make payments to the mortgagee or its servicing organization only for the principal, interest and other non-escrow charges required by the mortgage loan documents. (2) Forward to the mortgagee or its servicing organization, on at least an annual basis, copies of paid tax, insurance and other charges with respect to the real property which secures the mortgage loan. c. Within 10 days of receipt of the copy of the paid tax bill and the notice required pursuant to subsection b. of this section, the mortgagee or its servicing organization shall remit the existing escrow account balance to the mortgagor; d. If, subsequent to taking the actions permitted under subsection a. and required under subsection b. of this section, the mortgagor fails to pay property taxes, insurance or other charges with respect to the real property which secures the mortgage loan, the mortgagee or its servicing organization may, at its sole discretion, pay any delinquent property taxes, insurance or other charges with respect to the real property which secures the mortgage loan and recover from the mortgagor any amount so paid with interest.
