Congress has given Americans impacted by COVID-19 the option to request up to one year of mortgage payment forbearance.To request a COVID-19-related forbearance under the CARES Act, you need to attest to your mortgage servicer that you’ve suffered a financial hardship directly or indirectly caused by the virus.If you request mortgage forbearance under the CARES Act, it can last up to a year.Payments under forbearance aren’t forgiven and will need to be repaid beginning once the COVID-19-related forbearance ends.
The provisions of the act are specifically written to prevent the charging of fees and penalties related to a COVID-19 forbearance. During your forbearance, servicers are not permitted to charge extra interest beyond what they would have had you made the payment on time as scheduled.
