Notify the debtor and the attorney for the debtor, in writing, of any
changes in the interest rate for any non-fixed rate or adjustable rate
mortgages and the effective date of any such adjustment or adjustments

balance; and (5) all fees and charges alleged to have accrued post-
petition, along with an explanation thereof. The statement may be in the
form of a post-petition ledger prepared by the servicer or lender provided
the documents used to prepare same are also provided. The debtor may (i)
