That is exactly what you should do.
But I agree with one of the posters above; you won't get out of paying if that is your goal.
If it is some other issue then by all means report it.

Re: forged signature on a closed case concerning the mortgage

Without knowing the nature of the signature OR your ultimate goal, there is no way anyone can really advise you. If you are trying to default on a mortgage, it is unlikely such an issue, on the part of a lender will be significant as it does not change the meeting of the minds regarding the terms.

It is good to inform the law enforcement regarding the forgery so that you can avoid any issues related to the document.

Re: forged signature on a closed case concerning the mortgage

I wish to inform you that Florida Statutes Section 831.01 has jurisdiction in this matter. Further, a person commits forgery when, with intent to injure or defraud any person, he or she "falsely makes, alters, forges or counterfeits" any written instrument specified in the state forgery statute. The burden to prove forgery will be on you. Florida classifies basic forgery as a felony of the third degree with sentences up to five years in jail, five years probation, $5,000 in fines. You may contact the law enforcement agencies and seek guidance. Alternatively, you may seek guidance from an attorney.

You certainly can do that.

What is you real goal? If you want to attempt to invalidate some signed documents the matter will have to be in the courts at some point.

Of course if the person is charged with signature fraud that may make it easier in the court for you. There are a lot of factors to consider in these kinds of issues and we do not have your details here. It is not always quite as easy as you may think.
