    What type of covid relief is offered in reference to mortgage.

    • Forbearance Report on June 7, 2020 at 4:22 pm

      The Federal CARES Act, which was signed into law on March 27th, 2020, provides certain protections for homeowners that are experiencing hardship due to COVID-19. The first step is to determine if your loan is federally backed. If your loan is owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac or insured/guaranteed by FHA, VA, or USDA your servicer must grant you up to 180 days forbearance.

      If your loan is not federally backed, your servicer is encouraged to follow the protections provided to homeowners under the CARES Act, but they are not required to.

      If you are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 and are afraid that you will not be able to keep current on your mortgage payments, you must contact your mortgage servicer immediately to discuss what options may be available to you.

    How do I apply for this program

    • Forbearance Report on June 12, 2020 at 6:14 pm

      Linda, if your mortgage is Federally backed by either Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, VA or USDA, your lender should allow offer forbearance just by requesting it according to the Federal CARES Act law that was passed on March 27th, 2020.

      If your loan is not federally backed, they should still offer you forbearance and are encouraged to not require any proof of hardship.

      The guidelines for 21st Mortgage states that you need to be prepared to provide documentation to prove you are experiencing a hardship. If your loan if Federally backed, documentation is not required to be granted forbearance.

      Step one, use these lookup tools to see if your loan is Federally backed:

      Loan Lookup Tools:
      Fannie Mae Loan Lookup Tool
      Freddie Mac Loan Lookup Tool
      MERS ServicerID Loan Lookup Tool

      Step 2, if your servicer is going to ask you for documentation, we recommend using a secure digital locker to easily access and share your financial documentation. It’s easier to protect yourself when you’re not emailing your personal financial information to your lender.

      You can sign up for a free, secure digital financial locker here.

      Step 3, contact your servicer and ask for forbearance.

      Now, it’s important that when you ask for forbearance, that you also have a conversation about what your options are for paying back the skipped payments and getting your loan back into good standing after the forbearance period is expired.

      Follow the instructions on this page for contacting your servicer.
