Q. Do we have guidance for consumer debt in forbearance?
A. Yes, on conventional loans. In summary, the forbearance (or other loss mitigation action) will be considered on a case-by-case basis subject to the type of action the borrower has taken in lieu of making regularly scheduled payments. If the loan is in forbearance/deferment, and all payments have been moved to the end of the loan, provide the forbearance / deferment documentation in order to be considered. Other loss mitigation options must include the documentation of the agreement as well as evidence the loan has not been delinquent since the agreement has been in place. Any delinquent / derogatory credit prior to the agreements is subject to standard guidelines and underwriting risk assessment.
The guidance for Consumer Loan Debt in Forbearance is posted on the COVID-19 Temporary Guidance page. Note: As a reminder, you must be logged into KO to access guidelines.
