Webinar Date: 
October 22, 2020
| Skill level: 

As the economic fallout of COVID-19 continues, more and more people will seek out forbearances for their home, auto, and student loans. The options available are dependent on the type of government-backed loans held by the borrowers. Max Gardner and Jay Patterson will explore the end of forbearance options for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans as well as FHA/VA insured loans.

Escrow issues can play a part of the post forbearance options. Previous partial claim modifications are integrated in the decision-making process as well for FHA loans. Learn about the many forbearance opportunities available to consumers. This webinar is geared to intermediate practitioners.

What You Will Learn:

  • What options are available for borrowers at the end of their forbearance plans
  • Why the status of the loan on March 1, 2020 is important
  • Whether the borrower can maintain their pre-forbearance payment
