Coronavirus Mortgage Forebearence

Here is another opportunity to maintain or recover from the pa
ndemic. This is a way to defer payment on your mortgage for up to 360 days if you fall into one of these categories. Also, know this, most will not fit into either of these categories. Most folks have Conventional or some other non-performing loan. There are different rules for conventional so make sure you call your lender and get clarity on all of these opportunities.
 
Borrowers of government-backed mortgages (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, VA and USDA) can request up to 360-day payment forbearance without proof of hardship. No additional fees, interest, or penalties can be assessed for the forbearance. Except for abandoned or vacant property, there may be no foreclosure actions for 60 days from 3/18/2020.
