Moratorium Information The past week has been extremely busy/concerning for our Industry regarding moratoriums. Late last Thursday, a potential stimulus plan was announced by then President-Elect Biden which spoke of extending the moratoriums through September 2021. Then on Tuesday, it was announced that FHFA had decided to align the moratoriums for Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac with HUD which formalized an extension through February 2021. Then on Wednesday, President Biden signed an Executive Order extending the moratoriums through March 2021. This just speaks on the Federal level. Many states have their own guidance with NY State announcing moratorium through April 2021.
NAMFS looks to provide our members with the most current information and typically we post on our social media accounts and announcement feature on the NAMFS website homepage. We also encourage our members to review the following link which contains state specific information – COVID-19 Related Eviction and Foreclosure Orders/Guidance 50-State Tracker | Perkins Coie
