When payment is received and credited to an account, that account is automatically updated with the payment. If a duplicate payment is received, the payment system will show a zero amount due. The duplicate payment will be returned to the mortgage company, at which time the property owner should contact the mortgage company to receive a refund or credit (and vice versa if mortgage company paid first, then the property owner mailed in a payment).
