A Quick Update About Mortgage Relief Options After Hurricane Irma

For homeowners in Florida who were impacted by Hurricane Irma and are having a difficult time making your mortgage payments, you now have one less thing to worry about. Lenders are required to give Florida homeowners what’s called a “forbearance payment” on their mortgage in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are giving 90-day forbearance on mortgage payments without any negative marks on your credit. In some cases, they are allowing 3 months of missed payments, and this amount will be added to the end of the loan.

Again, check with your lender for the specifics.
