Improvements in multidisciplinary forbearance

As a DUS fundraiser, you can be patient with the client and the staff that Fannie Mae gives you. As a lender, you can give your tenants the opportunity to provide much-needed housing support.

What has changed for DUS loans?

An endurance guide for multiple families has been extended until June 30, 2021, to address the current challenges. Currently, DUS lenders have decided to increase the existing tolerance for multifamily borrowers for three months, for full tolerance of up to six months if their client’s ability to pay is affected by problems related to COVID-19.

Forbearance updates for multiple families

COVID-19 (coronavirus) has affected millions of Americans due to job loss, income, or illness. If lenders are struggling with a monthly payment, mortgage lenders can provide relief. As a DUS borrower, until June 30, 2021, you can provide tolerance to customers on a delegation provided by Fannie Mae. As a lender, you can provide much-needed housing support to tenants.

What has changed with lenders?

Multifamily borrowers can gain tolerance and relief through their DUS borrowers. Under the new directives, the borrower has the right to repay outstanding payments within 24 months. In return, the borrower must suspend all evictions of tenants who are unable to pay the rent for the duration of the contract. For multifamily properties financed by Fannie Mae with new or long-term tolerance, the borrower must provide the following lease protection during the repayment period:

  • Allow the tenant the flexibility to repay the rent over time, not in a lump sum;
  • Do not charge a tenant compensation or penalty for lack of a pass; and
  • Notify the tenant of the cancellation with a notice period of at least 30 days.

Multifamily clients: Assistance is available to you and your tenants

If you are a multifamily borrower currently helping America and facing financial challenges, talk to your DUS lender about tolerance and how it can help you and your landlords. Assistance is also available to your tenants who may be having difficulty with COVID-19. Encourage them to explore their possibilities by visiting the Tenant Resource Finder. The tool is easy to use – many household tenants simply enter their address that matches a viable resource which can be useful for tenants experiencing financial difficulties.
