Homeowners impacted by COVID 19 and unable to make your mortgage payments, you might be eligible for reduced or suspended mortgage payments up to 12 months. This is something you will need to talk about with the bank that holds your mortgage. As of March 20, mortgages from Freddie Mac and Fannie (about half of all mortgages) may should be eligible based on new federal guidance. Contact a housing counseling agency if you need help or have questions navigating the process.
Homeowners unable to qualify for mortgage relief under the federal guidelines, should contact a local housing counseling agency to help with foreclosure prevention guidance.
