Good news. President Trump announced last week that the Department of Housing and Urban Development would suspend all “foreclosures and evictions” through the end of April, but only those with an FHA-insured mortgage are eligible. In addition, many lenders are offering relief options to their borrowers, including forbearance options (up to 12 months), waived fees, payment deferrals, and more. Those facing hardships are encouraged to contact their lender right away for program details.
In addition, the Federal Housing Finance Agency announced Wednesday that it is directing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to suspend foreclosures and evictions for at least 60 days.
