Mortgage Relief options

Financial challenges due to the coronavirus have many homeowners in search of mortgage relief. Mortgage deferment and mortgage forbearance are two options you may have read about recently. Both allow a borrower to skip monthly payments for a set period, but there can be differences.

Deferment-Allows borrowers to repay missed mortgage payments over time or add them to the end of their loan period

Forbearance- Allows borrowers to temporarily stop making payments without risk of foreclosure, but missed payments are typically due in one lump some
