Fixed payment (forbearance)

The CARES Act states that if a farmer has financial problems due to COVID-19, he can be granted a loan for up to 180 days, with a choice of another 180 days (maximum 360 days). Multi-family mortgage owners can also get relief. The CARES Act allows for 30-day tolerances for multi-family mortgages and up to two 30-day extensions.

If you are offered a tolerance under the CARES Act or any lender, please check the terms carefully before signing. It’s best to add the required payments at the end of your mortgage term. Some lenders, especially from the private sector, may have certain conditions, which may delay short-term direct payments and require lower payments. Discrimination against mortgage loans is illegal. If you think you have been discriminated against based on race, religion, sex, marital status, public support practice, national origin, disability, or age, there are steps you can take. One such step is to submit a report to the Office of Consumer Finance Protection or the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

If you are a federally approved lender and lender, you must contact the lender (the company that pays for it) to apply.

If applicable, homeowners must set up a written or written document on the server that can provide up to 30 days of authorization.

How to request an extension of forbearance

To request this extension of patience, you need to contact your credit representative. Extension is not automatic. No additional fees, penalties, or interest (in excess of the expected amount) will be added to your account. You do not have to submit any additional documents other than the claim that there are financial difficulties associated with the epidemic.

The right to stop forbearance

As a borrower, CARES law gives you the right to terminate your tolerance at any time. This applies to government loans for general housing or apartment buildings.

There are no additional penalties, interest, or late fees.

During an approved tolerance period, your service provider will not charge any fines, interest, or fees that would not be charged if you paid on time and in full. Landlords may not charge tenants any compensation or penalty for late payment of rent during a tolerance period granted to the landlord.

There are no reports in the credit bureaus.

Lenders are not required to report late or missed payments to credit bureaus, provided you are in one of the tolerance programs. This means that the fact that you are not paying at all or at all affects your credit score.

There is no execution or expulsion.

The moratorium on foreigners and the granting of state-subsidized loans runs until December 31, 2020. Landowners are not allowed to express ownership during a period in which they receive a departure.

Additional help is possible.

Once you have reached the end of your endurance period, you may be given extra help if you need it. Work with your services, and if possible, pay more often. If you still need help, ask your service provider what other options are available. This could include a reduction in your monthly payments or any form of loan change. If you and your creditor reach an agreement on any loan change, you will not report to the credit bureaus as “delayed” for the loan.
