delay mortgage payment

Simply put, a loan forbearance means that your lender or creditor will allow you to postpone repayment on a loan or debt. If I am unable to make my mortgage payments as a result of being affected by COVID-19, what mortgage relief or payment solutions are available to me? Mortgage lenders may put home loans on hold through forbearance and or a 90-day delay in foreclosure to help you catch up on payments.

Delay mortgage payment -

One-third of people who delayed mortgage payments during COVID-19 used cash for groceries, utilities


One of the lifelines for homeowners during the COVID-19 pandemic has been forbearance, an ability to skip or make smaller monthly payments on mortgages under the CARES Act, leaving them more cash for emergencies.

Still, the majority of people who went into forbearance remain stressed about getting – and staying – on track with mortgage payments, according to the results of a survey by Credit Karma which was exclusively shared with USA TODAY.

About 2.2 million homeowners had entered forbearance plans as of April 25, 2021, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. In May 2020, more than 4 million U.S. mortgages were in forbearance.

Your credit score: Buying a home? Tips to improve your credit score

Of those surveyed who were in forbearance, 59% felt that their financial stability depended on being able to delay their mortgage payments, and 62% agreed that they felt stressed about the payments they would eventually need to make toward their mortgage in the future.

While in forbearance, 34% used the cash that would have gone toward their mortgage for essentials like groceries, medical needs, utilities and additional expenses incurred throughout the pandemic, such as homeschooling equipment and caring for additional family members. Close to 32% saved the money by either putting it toward an emergency fund or a general savings account. A full 21% said they used the cash to pay down debts like student loans or credit cards. The rest (13%) claimed they didn’t have any extra money, even while in forbearance.

“Forbearance is a double-edged sword. It’s great because it allowed people to stay in their homes. It allowed them to save the money for necessities like groceries, medical attention or even to pay down debts,” says Andy Taylor, general manager for Credit Karma Home. “But it does come at a cost. Namely, at the end of your forbearance period, you will have to pay that back.”

The results are based on a national online survey conducted in April 2021 among 1,033 adults conducted by Qualtrics on behalf of Credit Karma, a financial technology company with more than 100 million customers.

About 20% of the homeowners in the survey tapped their home equity (what the home is worth minus what is owed on the mortgage) line of credit in the last 12 months. Of those, 41% used the money on home renovations.

“Last year, homeowners with mortgages saw their equity increase by 11%, fundamentally because home values went up pretty significantly in 2020,” says Taylor.

Other insights from the survey:

Many want to own homes

Overall, 30% of respondents said they were considering a home purchase in the next 12 months. Of the 70% who weren't in the market for a home in the next year, only 2% overall said they’ll never want to buy a home.

But home financial literacy is lacking

To assess Americans’ understanding of two basic terms related to homeownership, Credit Karma asked survey-takers to select the correct definition for the terms out of four possible options.

Only 54% of respondents selected the correct answer when it came to the definition of home equity. Fifty-nine percent of homeowners were more likely to pick the right answer compared with 45% of renters.

Respondents did slightly better identifying the meaning of home value, which is the current market value of a home. A full 62% were able to pick out the correct definition.

Surprisingly, people who had tapped into their home equity in the last 12 months did worse than the overall group in selecting the correct definitions. Only 45% of this group correctly identified the definitions of home equity and home value – an indication that people may be getting financial products they don’t fully understand.

One area of strong understanding: 84% of survey respondents overall knew that it’s possible to leverage home equity to access cash.

Taylor provided USA TODAY with some tips for people dealing with forbearance:

Talk to your servicer

“The first step to getting forbearance is talking to your mortgage servicer. You’ll need to ask about its forbearance or hardship options,” says Taylor.

Sometimes your mortgage servicer is not the same as the financial institution that you originally got your mortgage from. When asking for forbearance, you need to make sure you’re talking to the correct party.

"You should also check to see who your mortgage is backed by. If your mortgage is backed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or the federal government, you may have additional help available to you," says Taylor.

Understand your options

Forbearance can look different depending on the type of loan you have, what the requirements are for your mortgage and who your servicer is. Forbearance may mean that your payments are paused entirely or that your payment amount is temporarily reduced.

Make sure you understand what you’ll owe and when forbearance ends. With certain types of forbearance, you may end up owing all your paused payments in a lump sum as soon as the forbearance period is over.

One thing to keep in mind: Interest continues to accrue even on the paused or reduced amounts.

Seek professional advice

"This whole process can be incredibly overwhelming," says Taylor. "If you need some help, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has created a tool to help you find housing counselors that are approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development."

Mortgage Deferment vs. Forbearance: What’s the Difference?

Homeowners have two options for temporarily pausing or lowering their monthly mortgage payment during times of hardship: deferment and forbearance. The primary differences between the two are whether interest accrues and when you're required to repay.

What’s the Difference Between Mortgage Deferment and Forbearance?

DefermentForbearance
Payment helpDelays, but does not reduce, the deferred payment until the end of the loanDelays or reduces payment for a specific period of time
Interest accrualIn some cases, no interest will accrue on deferred paymentsNormal interest accrues on payments missed during forbearance
Missed paymentsPaid at the end of the loan periodMay be required to be paid at the end of the forbearance period, depending on the forbearance terms

Payment Help

Deferment allows mortgage borrowers to delay payments previously missed during a forbearance period and repay them at the end of the loan period. While a portion of your mortgage payments are deferred, your regular monthly mortgage payments must be paid on time.

Forbearance pauses or reduces payments for homeowners who are experiencing temporary hardship. While borrowers have the option to make payments during the forbearance period, they're not required. Some lenders may require you to provide regular updates on your finances during the forbearance period.

Making payments during forbearance reduces the amount due at the end of that period.

Interest Accrual

Mortgage payments that have been deferred to the end of the loan don't accrue additional interest. With forbearance, on the other hand, interest will accrue normally each month as scheduled.

Repayment

With forbearance, you may be required to make up the missed payments after the forbearance payment ends, depending on the loan and the forbearance terms. For example, if your monthly mortgage payment is $1,400 and you apply for six months of forbearance, you'll owe $8,400 in missed payments at the end of forbearance.

Deferment allows you to delay missed payments to the end of the loan period, when you sell or transfer the home or refinance.

Which Is Right for You?

Deferment may be right for you if you've just ended a period of forbearance and can afford to resume monthly payments but cannot afford to make up the payments missed during forbearance, even on a repayment plan. Additionally, if you do not want to permanently modify your loan terms, you may opt for deferment.

You may have to pay the deferred payments if you sell or transfer your property or refinance the loan.


Forbearance may be right for you if you are experiencing short-term financial hardship; for example, from job loss or disability, and cannot afford your monthly mortgage payments. You may have to provide proof that you're experiencing the hardship.

Other Information

If your ability to pay has been affected by COVID-19, under the federal CARES Act, you can request forbearance without having to provide documentation.

If your loan is backed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), or the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), you must have requested an initial forbearance by Sept 30, 2021. If your loan is backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, there is not currently a deadline for requesting  initial forbearance.

Consumers with federally backed mortgages will not be required to make a lump-sum payment at the end of forbearance stemming from COVID-19 hardship. Instead, these borrowers are eligible to defer up to 12 months of paused payments.

The Bottom Line

Forbearance provides temporary payment relief to homeowners who are experiencing hardship. At the end of the forbearance payments, paused monthly payments may be due in full. At that time, borrowers may consider deferment to postpone the lump-sum payment until the end of the loan period. This article is for informational purposes only; look at the options in relation to your particular situation to decide what’s best for you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you get forbearance or deferment on your loan?

Talk to your loan servicer if you're experiencing financial hardship and need temporary relief from your monthly payments. If you're approved for forbearance, make sure to contact your loan servicer at least 30 days before the end of the forbearance period is near to discuss options for making up forbearance. These options may include deferment, full repayment, a short-term repayment plan, or loan modification.

How long do you have to make up for forbearance on a mortgage?

Unless you make other arrangements, your suspended payments are due at the end of the forbearance period. Failing to pay or to enroll in a repayment option could lead to missed payments, damage to your credit score, mortgage default, and foreclosure. Your loan servicer should contact you 30 days before forbearance ends to discuss making up the forbearance on your mortgage. Some servicers may make your payment options available from your online account.

How does mortgage deferment affect your credit score?

Ask your loan servicer to confirm how your account status and monthly payments will be reported to the credit bureaus. As long as your account reflects a "current" status and you resume making monthly payments on time, your credit score won't be negatively impacted.

Number of US homeowners seeking to delay mortgage payment rises to highest level in months

A growing number of U.S. homeowners are looking to delay their mortgage payments, a sign the economy's recovery from the coronavirus pandemic is beginning to slow.

A weekly survey from the Mortgage Bankers Association released Monday shows that the proportion of mortgage borrowers seeking forbearance relief in the first week of December rose to the highest level since August. At the same time, call volume at the companies that collect payments rose to the highest level since mid-April.

BIDEN CALLS FOR ERASING SOME STUDENT LOAN DEBT, FACES PROGRESSIVE PRESSURE TO GO FURTHER

"The latest economic data is showing a slowdown, particularly an increase in layoffs and long-term unemployment," Mike Fratantoni, MBA's senior vice president and chief economist, said in a statement. "Coupled with the latest surge in COVID-19 cases, it is not surprising to see more homeowners seeking relief."

The increased number of households seeking mortgage relief comes amid evidence of a faltering – and uneven – economic rebound. U.S. household wealth grew to a record-shattering $123.52 trillion in the third quarter, a sign that affluent Americans are doing well even as millions of workers remain unemployed.

Under the March CARES Act, homeowners with a federally backed home loan can skip or delay mortgage payments for up to a year. But lawmakers have cautioned that forbearance is not forgiveness: At some point, homeowners will owe the payments they chose to temporarily suspend.

CORONAVIRUS RELIEF DEAL TO BOOST WEEKLY JOBLESS AID BY $300 BUT WON'T INCLUDE STIMULUS CHECK

At the end of the forbearance plan, homeowners will be provided with several options to compensate for the missed payments – but will not be required to pay everything back all at once in what’s known as a “balloon payment,” according to mortgage giant Fannie Mae. Frequently, mortgage lenders will tack on the balance that homeowners did not pay during the forbearance period onto the end of the loan.

Still, the total percentage of loans that are in forbearance actually fell to 5.48% in the week ending Dec. 6, down from 5.54% the week before. But more homeowners exiting forbearance are using a modification, "a sign that they have not been able to fully get back on their feet, even if they are working again," Fratantoni said.

How to Protect Yourself: Avoiding Mortgage Foreclosure and Foreclosure "Rescue" Scams

Source: The Florida Attorney General

Contact your mortgage loan servicer as soon as you realize you may have a problem or have missed a payment.

Mortgage Servicers can discuss options with you to help you work through payments during difficult financial times. Servicers prefer to have you keep your home and most will work with you to seek a solution. Be honest with your servicer about your financial circumstances so that you can have a realistic discussion regarding your options. You can find the number for your mortgage servicer on your monthly mortgage statement or coupon book.

Understand your rights.

Learn all that you can about your mortgage rights and foreclosure laws in Florida. Review your loan documents to determine what your lender or servicer may do if you can’t make your payments. Review Florida laws, particularly Florida Statutes Chapter 702 to learn about foreclosure proceedings.

Reach this hotline by dialing, 1-888-995-HOPE. You may also obtain a list of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) certified counselors in Florida here.

Understand the relevant terms.

If you are working with your mortgage servicer or an approved housing counselor to keep your home, there are several options:

  • Reinstatement: Your servicer may agree to let you pay the total amount you are behind, in a lump sum payment and by a specific date. This is often combined with forbearance when you can show that funds from a bonus, tax refund or other source will become available at a specific time in the future. Be aware that there may be late fees and other costs associated with a reinstatement plan.
  • Forbearance: Your servicer may offer a temporary reduction or suspension of your mortgage payments while you get back on your feet. Forbearance is often combined with a reinstatement or a repayment plan to pay off the missed or reduced mortgage payments. Please be aware that some forbearance plans require that you immediately pay back the missed payments in a lump fifth third bank 95th and kedzie at the end of the plan.
  • Repayment Plan: This is an agreement that gives you a fixed amount of time to repay the amount you are behind by combining a portion of what is past due with your regular monthly payment. At the end of the repayment period you have gradually paid back the amount of your mortgage that was delinquent.
  • Loan Modification: This is a written agreement how do i pay my auto loan with capital one you and your mortgage servicer that permanently changes one or more of the original terms of your note to make the payments more affordable.

If you and your servicer agree that you cannot keep your home, there may still be options to avoid foreclosure:

  • Short Payoff: If you can sell your house but the sale proceeds are less than the total amount you owe on your mortgage, your mortgage servicer may agree to a short payoff and write off the portion of your mortgage that exceeds the net proceeds from the sale.
  • Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure: A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure is a cancellation of your mortgage if you voluntarily transfer title of your property to your mortgage servicer. Usually you must try to sell your home for its fair market value for at least 90 days before a mortgage company will consider this option. A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure may not be an option if there are other liens on the property, such as second mortgages, judgments from creditors or tax liens.
  • Assumption: An assumption permits a qualified buyer to take over your mortgage debt and make the mortgage payments, even if the mortgage is non-assumable. As a result, you may be able to sell your property and avoid foreclosure.
  • Refinancing: While refinancing is not necessarily a what to do for sore throat home remedies option when facing foreclosure and can sometimes even be a predatory practice, there are instances where it may help. Talk to your servicer to see if refinancing is an option for you.

Number of US homeowners seeking to delay mortgage payment rises to highest level in months

A growing number of U.S. homeowners are looking to delay their mortgage payments, a sign the economy's recovery from the coronavirus pandemic is beginning to slow.

A weekly survey from the Mortgage Bankers Association released Monday shows that the proportion of mortgage borrowers seeking forbearance relief in the first week of December rose to the highest level since August. At the same time, call volume at the companies that collect payments rose to the highest level since mid-April.

BIDEN CALLS FOR ERASING SOME STUDENT LOAN DEBT, FACES PROGRESSIVE PRESSURE TO GO FURTHER

"The latest economic data is showing a slowdown, particularly an increase in layoffs and long-term unemployment," Mike Fratantoni, MBA's senior vice president and chief economist, said in a statement. "Coupled with the latest surge in COVID-19 cases, it is not surprising to see more homeowners seeking relief."

The increased number of households seeking mortgage relief comes amid evidence of a faltering – and uneven – economic rebound. U.S. household wealth grew to a record-shattering $123.52 trillion in the third quarter, a sign that affluent Americans are doing well even as millions of workers remain unemployed.

Under the March CARES Act, homeowners with a federally backed home loan can skip or delay mortgage payments for up to a year. But lawmakers have cautioned that forbearance is not forgiveness: At some point, homeowners will owe the payments they chose to temporarily suspend.

CORONAVIRUS RELIEF DEAL TO BOOST WEEKLY JOBLESS AID BY $300 BUT WON'T INCLUDE STIMULUS CHECK

At the end of the forbearance plan, homeowners will be provided with several options to compensate for the missed payments – but will not be required to pay everything back all at once in what’s known as a “balloon payment,” according to mortgage giant Fannie Mae. Frequently, mortgage lenders will tack on the balance that homeowners did not pay during the forbearance period onto the end of the loan.

Still, the total percentage of loans that are in forbearance actually fell to 5.48% in the week ending Dec. 6, down from 5.54% the week before. But more homeowners exiting forbearance are using a modification, "a sign that they have not been able to fully get back on their feet, even if they are working again," Fratantoni said.

Homeowners with private mortgages may also be able to get assistance from their mortgage companies.

Most homeowners can delay making mortgage payments for up to twelve months by asking for what is known as a “forbearance.” Payments that are postponed due to forbearance can be caught up later by adding the payments to the end of the loan or working out another agreement to repay over time. In most cases, missed payments will not have to be paid back all at once. If homeowners cannot afford their regular mortgage delay mortgage payment after the forbearance ends, they can ask the mortgage company to review them for a more affordable payment.

On February 16, the Biden Administration announced that it was expanding the availability of forbearance for borrowers facing financial hardship due to the pandemic.  Borrowers with FHA, VA, or USDA mortgage loans may now receive up to 18 months of forbearance.  (The previous limit had been 12 months.)  The Administration also extended the deadline for applying for an initial forbearance based on a COVID hardship to June 30, 2021.*   

This deadline only applies to borrowers with FHA, VA, or USDA mortgage loans.  There is not currently a deadline to apply for a forbearance for borrowers with loans owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.  Additionally, borrowers may always apply for a forbearance based on a temporary loss of employment income.  There is no deadline for this type of forbearance.

Learn about forbearance

Who is eligible for forbearance?

You may have a right to a COVID hardship forbearance if:

  • you experience financial hardship directly or indirectly due to the coronavirus pandemic, and
  • you have a federally backed mortgage, which includes HUD/FHA, VA, USDA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac loans.

When is the deadline for applying?

If your loan is backed by HUD/FHA, USDA (see 9/27/21 announcement), or VA, you may request an initial COVID hardship forbearance as long as the COVID-19 National Emergency is in place.
