|Forbearance & Moratorium Update|
NAMFS anxiously awaits an update on the CFPB proposal which was to extend the foreclosure moratoriums through the end of 2021. NAMFS did submit our comments regarding this proposal before the May 10, 2021 deadline. To read the response, CLICK HERE. The current moratorium expiration date is June 30, 2021. These extensions concern federally backed mortgages.
The forebearance moratoriums have been extended through September 30, 2021. Overall numbers of loans have steadily declined until the most recent week when they rose by 17K. NAMFS looks to provide our members with the most current information and if you have any questions please to reach out to us. 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
