Statement on the Coronavirus (COVID-19):

At Lakeview, our primary concern is for the health and safety of you, our customer, and your loved ones. We are committed to assisting you during this trying time.

If you’ve been impacted by COVID-19 and need our support, we’re here to help. Understanding your options is an important part of maintaining control of your financial situation. If you have concerns regarding your existing mortgage, it is important that you reach out to the Servicer of your mortgage loan to review available options and learn about assistance programs that may be available to you.

All Lakeview customers are eligible for the protections under the CARES Act. One of these protections is mortgage forbearance, meaning a pause in payments. The forbearance protection can be for an initial time period of up to 180 days; and as needed, an additional extension time of up to 180 days, for a maximum forbearance period of 360 days.

Please contact your Servicer below to request a forbearance. At the end of the forbearance period, there will be repayment options available to you; as no one will be required to immediately “make-up” the paused payments, all at once or in a lump sum.

Please continue to work with your Servicer regarding your unique situation.

If you have forbearance questions and would like to speak to a certified housing counselor, please call the Hope Hotline at 995Hope.org

    Not sure what to do I currently have 2 mortages x wife and kids live in 1 I live in the other house, work has slowed down to few hours a week from a steady 70hrs (0nly make $22.hr) a week biggest problem is my insurance dropped me few months back so they forced insurance on me and didnt have funds in escrow
    (payment went from$1144. to 1890.55) to cover then I got a company to cover me and now wants to drop me if I dont get a new roof or have it in contract by may 5th so do I go into forberance so I can do the roof ?

    (if I do it myself 2-4k, if I go with a company 13k added to my loan about another $100. a month)
    fico is 742

      You should only choose forbearance if you’re unable to make your mortgage payments. It’s important to understand that any skipped mortgage payments during forbearance have to be paid back. Most servicers expect all missed payments to be made at once, but if you’re unable to do that, they may be able to work out a different repayment plan to help you catch up.

      Another concern might be that many lenders are now coming out and saying that they will not allow refinancing for 1 year or maybe more if you’ve been in forbearance. If you need to get equity out of your home in the next year, that may present a challenge.

      My advice is to make sure you fully understand the terms of the forbearance and the reinstatement options that your servicer has available to you, and get everything in writing if you can.

      Hope this helps?

      DONT GO INTO FORBEARANCE. You credit score automaticly drops. Also most banks won’t touch you until you have a minimum of 6 months current payments.

      As for the roof contact a roofer and have him give you a five year roof certication and present that to your insurance company. Most insurance companies hire some one to do a drive by verification of condition. A roofing company carries more weight than the so called insurance inspector.

    We applied for forbearance through this company. At the time we submitted our application, it said it could take up to three days for a response. That was early in the morning on August 28th.

    ** From them: Fri, Aug 28, 6:17 AM
    * Your request for forbearance has been submitted!
    Dear __________________,
    Your request has been submitted to our Loss Mitigation team to review.
    * All of our application information that we filled out in an image.
    Due to the volume of requests, it may take up to three (3) days to review your request.

    There is nothing additional you need to do at this time. If for any reason we need further information from you, we will contact you by phone or email.

    Upon approval, we will send you an email and a letter (agreement) outlining the terms of the forbearance program. After receiving the email and/or letter, you may also view the forbearance terms. Log into your account, select My Account from the menu bar at the top of the page, and then Loss Mitigation from the drop-down menu to access your information.

    During the forbearance term, late charges and other fees will be suspended. If your loan is current at the time of entering into a forbearance plan, then each month you are in the forbearance plan we will report the status of the account to the credit reporting agencies as current. If, however, your loan was delinquent prior to entering into a forbearance plan, we will maintain that delinquency status during the period of the forbearance. If you are able to bring the loan current during the forbearance plan, we will report the account as current.

    Next Steps
    If you are set up for recurring payments (auto-draft), scheduled payments will to be suspended when the forbearance plan is approved. Auto-draft payments must be suspended 3 business days prior to the draft date to prevent a payment from being drafted from your bank account. If your next scheduled draft date is within 8 business days, please ensure you cancel the draft on our website to ensure the payment does not draft.
    Be on the lookout for emails from us. We will send out regular updates to you on the status of your loan, so you can stay aware of all programs and options available to you.
    If your financial situation changes during the term of your forbearance plan, please contact us immediately to reassess your situation and discuss potential alternatives.
    At least 30 days prior to the end of the forbearance plan, we will contact you to update your financial situation and discuss options to resolve the outstanding balance. We will provide you instructions on how to apply and outline any required documentation and response timeframes.
    As news about Coronavirus continues to unfold, additional payment assistance options may become available. We continually monitor these developments. If a new program is created, we will send further information about the guidelines and benefits to you by email.

    Sincerely,

    Customer Service Department

      Hi Tammy, this website is not associated with Lakeview Loan Servicing in any way. We built this resource to help folks find the COVID policies for your servicer, but your servicer does not monitor this website.

      It is also very helpful that you posted this information so other Lakeview customers know what to expect.
