Homeowners with a mortgage who have damaged homes and/or are displaced from their homes may be eligible for mortgage relief.
● This will not help renters.
● This will not help homeowners who own their home outright.
● The focus is on primary & secondary residences. This will not be a session for owners of
investment properties who need mortgage relief on investment properties.
Homeowners who have had a loss and/or interruption in employment because of the hurricane may be eligible for mortgage relief.
● Employer experienced damage during the hurricane and may be closed for repairs and/or closed permanently.
● Agricultural loss of crop, harvest and/or livestock from the hurricane.
● Self employed and/or work from home and unable to work because of home damage.
Who do you know that needs mortgage relief?
● Up to one year with no mortgage payments
● No late fees
● No delinquencies reported to the credit bureaus
● The ability to negotiate how to catch up on payments without making a balloon payment.
Types of available assistance:
Moratorium: legal authorization to delay payment of money due or to suspend an activity.
This workout option is typically used for disaster.
Repayment: the most common relief is a repayment plan. This is a written agreement that allows the homeowner to bring the loan current within a given period of time by making scheduled payments toward the delinquent amount in addition to regular monthly payments.
Forbearance: the mortgage servicer, insurer and investor agree to delay foreclosure or other legal action in return for the homeowner’s promise to pay the debt by a specific date.
Modification: written agreement permanently changing one or more of the original terms of the mortgage note: type, rate, term or capitalize delinquency.
