11:31 pm

well, nbc bay area responds to a bay area homeowner who got a $3/4 million shock. >> he asked consumer investigator chris chmura for help. hi, chris. >> good evening. it's especially a lot of money for a teacher like john salvern. he's owned his house for about ten years, but this spring his bank blew him away when it said he owed double what he signed up for. move over, stocks and bonds. >> now is kind of an unprecedented time. >> reporter: home prices are up at the same time interest rates are low, south of 3%. >> which historically speaking is absurdly low. >> reporter: some finance experts say cashing in on your home's equity might be a savvy investment. >> to pay off more expensive types of debt. credit card debt for example. >> i bought it about ten years ago. >> reporter: teacher john tried to pull the trigger with his
11:34 pm
home. zillow says its value increased a couple hundred grand. in january john applied for a home equity line of credit. it found he already had two mortgages on his home. >> i don't have two. i know for a fact i only have one. i just refinanced in december. >> one mortgage for $765,000 that john knew about and was paying. other, also for 765 grand, but he had no clue. >> shocked. i didn't understand why there would be two mortgages on my record. >> reporter: the bank wouldn't give him his credit line until he accounted for the extra 765 k mortgage. long-term, a problem like this could prevent john from selling. so starting in march, he tried to fix it. >> conservatively, 15 to 20 phone calls and the phone calls lasted 45 to an hour each. >> reporter: john got his mortgage from change home mortgage. he needed change to delete the fan tam mortgage, but he says the service staff didn't take action.
11:35 pm
>> nobody is helping me. >> reporter: in june, john turned to us. we saw three clues to solve this mortgage mystery. first, the bank hadn't called in debt collectors or flagged john's credit for not paying the second mortgage. that's fishy. second, the mortgages were dated just one day apart, right around the same time john refinanced in december. coincidence? and third, they're almost the exact same amount, $765,000, and $765,600. with all that, we contacted change home mortgage. its lawyer responded to us immediately. within a month of our inquiry, quick for a real estate transaction, change had the mistaken one canceled. >> my gratitude to you guys. thank you very much. >> change mortgage sent us a statement saying the error in this case was caused by a national title insurance company. when change lending's management became aware of the situation, we immediately worked on behalf
11:36 pm
of the borrower to help get the issue resolved by the title company to the customer's satisfaction. >> i'm still sort of reeling from the double mortgage thing. >> jacob channel called john's case one in a million. >> i'm sorry to say, john, i haven't heard of that happening to other people or at least >> reporter: nonetheless, sheer recommendation any t, or refina. check the court records a few weeks after you close. verify your deed and mortgage are recorded properly. if not -- >> i would act on that as fast as possible. i'd probably drop everything that i was doing and contact my lender. >> john agree, 765,000%. >> follow the trail. just to cover yourself. >> jeantels us he was finally able to get his home equity line of credit. has your american dream been giving you nightmares? maybe we can help. go to and click the responds option or call us 888-996-tips. >> that is a great resolution and a beautiful home.
11:37 pm
>> that's a lot of money. >> it is. >> okay. let's talk about our weather. i saw a beautiful sunset. the haze is creating some nice sunsets. >> it is. >> but we're getting some smoke advisories. >> it's a good product. at least if you're going to look at it in any kind of way that way. but of course the haze, and a little bit of smoke as we roll through tomorrow could irritate you, especially if you do have respiratory problems. so we're going to start off with that forecast and the smoke. and look at all of these fires burning off to the north. now lately we haven't had to worry about any kind of smoke because the fog pattern has been so strong at the coastline. but you had the river complex, the monument fire, mcfarland fire, the river fire, also the dixie fire. so tremendous amount of smoke up there in northern california. and a quick wind shift tomorrow morning. looks like it could bring down some of the smoke right towards marin, napa, sonoma counties. you can see it in the orange and red color. so it may become more noticeable in the way you can smell it in
11:38 pm
the air. the rest of the bay area is in the blue to green color which is that haze. there is also the chance by tomorrow afternoon, we could see some of that go towards the east bay and south bay. real quick window here. for the morning, also the afternoon of that smoke. now as we roll through friday night, also into early saturday morning, we think that fog pattern is going to strike back up again and help to push this smoke off towards the east. and that would also be the same picture as we head through saturday's forecast. so we are going to have hour-by-hour updates on that if needed tomorrow, and we'll give you the latest of course on today in the by tomorrow morning. so let's spring into that morning forecast. and you can see we'll also start off a little fog near the coastline. some patchy fog and some cool 50s here throughout the bay area. we're going here with san francisco at 57. and the north bay at 55. so a cool start, but watch out by the afternoon. i do see temperatures warming up by about 5 to 10 degrees. so it's going to take us back into the hot category here for the inland valleys. 97 in livermore.
11:39 pm
96 in concord. 90 up to napa. palo alto in the 60s. my seven-day forecast in san francisco, we continue with 60s as you roll through the next several days. a and the good news about that trend is any kind of fog we can keep at the coastline will keep us out of a big heatwave for the inland valleys. we are going hotter tomorrow. we'll go down to 90 on saturday, and plenty of 80s as you roll through next week. so tomorrow may irritate some folks. their eyes, maybe a little coughing and breathing issues. up into the north bay, of course we'll keep you up to date on that. >> thanks for the heads up. well, happening now, the hyatt power plant at lake oroville has shut off. the department of water resources says it's because of low water levels. the plant which opened in the late 1960s has never been forced offline by low lake levels before. it has the capacity to power about a half million households. the plant said it was already in
