Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: Implications of Forbearance and Eviction Moratoriums for Multifamily Lenders, Borrowers
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the implications of loan forbearance and other directives issued by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, with particular focus on what has changed in documenting and servicing multifamily loans. The panel will also discuss issues lenders must consider when current forbearance and eviction moratoriums expire.
- FHFA oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
- CARES Act, CDC, and other tenant eviction moratoriums
- Fannie and Freddie forbearance directives
- Underwriting parameters
- Modifying the loan
- Servicing and reporting requirements
- Issues to consider upon the termination of forbearance
The panel will review these and other important issues:
- When are current eviction moratoriums set to expire, and how will that impact the forbearance directives currently in place?
- How does a lender determine when a borrower is eligible for forbearance?
- How is forbearance documented and extended?
- What happens to forborne loan payments when forbearance expires? Do the new payment terms vary with the type of loan program?
