COVID19 – IMPACT ON MORTGAGE PAYMENT

If you are struggling to make on-time monthly mortgage payments or have fallen behind on mortgage payments due to the COVID-19 crisis, you may be eligible for mortgage relief options recently enacted by Congress to protect homeowners. The CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, Economic, and Security Act) was enacted to provide protection and relief for homeowners attesting a financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 crisis. 

There are several programs available to homeowners facing economic hardship due to COVID-19. Many lenders have agreed to offer forbearance agreements, modifications and put a suspension on foreclosure activity. However, these programs are designed to be short term and do not always address the underlying issues causing the mortgage default. Further, the government mandated mortgage relief is only for federally backed mortgages. This leaves many homeowners outside the federally mandated guidelines for assistance. It is important to work with a law firm experienced in dealing with mortgage lenders and mortgage defaults.
