MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE: Cares Act creates gigantic opportunity for borrows under federally-backed and owned mortgages.

Posted By Cliff Tuttle | April 23, 2020

No. 1,643

The National Law Review reports that the Cares Act, which contained a variety of relief measures for persons suffering from COVID-19 shutdown, contains provisions permitting borrowers under federally backed mortgages to request relief from their mortgage servicer.  

Borrowers should contact their servicer to determine whether their mortgage is qualified.  Forbearance shall be granted for 180 days with an extension for an additional 180 days, upon request.
