Forbearance Waiting Period Issue Solved Through FHFA

May 19, 2020


Forbearance GREAT News for Your Clients.  You've heard me talking about how brutal the consequences were for taking a forbearance. It was something the designers of the Cares Act did not foresee. It took FHFA 6 weeks to figure it out. But they finally did. Listen to find out how the 12-month waiting period just got reduced to zero or three months and a quick summary of the four options for exiting a forbearance and their timing updates.

***Please note: this guideline change is for originating new conventional loans (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) not FHA, VA, and USDA, those still have a 12-month post forbearance waiting period. We are hopeful their announcements will follow.
