TLDR: Lenders are being encouraged to allow borrowers to defer their mortgage payments, but you need to reach out to your mortgage loan servicer to figure out the details! BEFORE missing a mortgage payment, talk with your lender and make sure you qualify AND are clear about the terms.
IMPORTANT INFO FOR BORROWERS CONSIDERING MORTGAGE RELIEF DUE TO COVID-19:
Not all borrowers are eligible.
Terms of forbearance are determined by individual lenders.
Be prepared to pay back FULL forbearance amount at the end of deferment.
What it means: A balloon payment at the end of your deferment. You heard right… depending on your lender and what the terms of your forbearance are, you may have to make up your deferment in as little as the 3rd month.
