Once the mortgage forbearance is granted, you get to skip making payment for a set amount of time. Normally the time granted is 180 days with possible extensions of another 180 days. Under the CARES act 15 months of forbearances is allowed.What a forbearance doesn’t do is eliminate the money that is owed. You will have to pay the missed payment back at a later date.
We will have an attorney reach out to you.
Different banks and loan servicers have different criteria for repayment of missed payments under forbearance. And, depending what kind of forbearance it was different lays may apply.
For instance, under New York State Banking Law Section 9-X there are 4 alternatives for repayment of missed payments for mortgage forbearance.
