During this pandemic, many people are stressed about finances and trying to find any way possible to make ends meet. Some homeowners are applying for mortgage forbearance through their banks while finding their way through this difficult time. The problem is, there is a lot of confusion and scrambling going on between banks or credit unions. Some people are saying lump-sum repayment is the only option, while others are saying that there will be a repayment plan that would run concurrently with your normal payments, or the possibility of a loan modification that would track the missed payments onto the end of your mortgage. This has created a communication lapse. If you apply for a forbearance, you need to know the terms. Every institution may be different, so make sure you fully understand what you are getting yourself into. Be careful and advocate for yourself.
