comment Transfer of loan / mortgage from non-Jew to Jew
For purposes of the question does it actually matter if the original lender was Jewish or not?

I also don't think it benefits either site to cross-post material from one to the other. -1 from me.

You answered part one at the end. You can cite those sources and write it up as answer to your own question if you'd like. As for part two, it would not follow.

@Dave, I mean it's reasonable; I haven't voted to close it or anything. I just think it's unlikely that this situation will arise as you posed it. You're basically asking if paying interest to someone, who is not the original lender but holds a lien on the loan, is a problem.

@Dave, that so does not convince me.

@dave, again, unlikely that this would be done outside the corporate structure.

@Dave, it is not common for major lenders to sell loans to individuals. This might be more applicable to cases of smaller loans for private investment where the purchaser of the loan is not religious.

@AdamMosheh, but this site brings you to all of those wonderful sites, with the knowledge to help you find what you are looking for there!

comment Why is a “leper” allowed to sit with other “lepers”?
@avi, I'm commenting here so you can see my constructive criticism, even though it relates to your edit on the question. First, I disagree that "leper" is not a valid English rendition, even if it is not a correct translation, since the vast majority of the English speaking world equates the two, and someone searching the internet will likely find the question that way. Second, if you are going to edit someone else's language, I recommend that if you cannot be certain how they would transliterate a Hebrew word into English, you use a more neutral and widely accepted transliteration scheme.

That was long, but the point is he's supposed to keep walking if he was already walking when the Zeman came. How can he maintain his focus? Or does he have to? I'll have to try to source this idea tomorrow.
