COVID-19 FORECLOSURE MORATORIUM
We are extending the foreclosure moratorium last announced in Guide Bulletin 2021-8. Servicers must suspend all foreclosure actions, including foreclosure sales, through July 31, 2021. This includes initiation of any judicial or non-judicial foreclosure process, motion for foreclosure judgment or order of sale. This foreclosure suspension does not apply to Mortgages on properties that have been determined to be vacant or abandoned.
We encourage Servicers to review the following COVID-19 resources:
The Guide will not be updated at this time to reflect these changes.
We appreciate the support that Servicers continue to extend to Borrowers coping with hardships attributed to COVID-19. If you have any questions about the changes announced in this Bulletin, please contact your Freddie Mac representative or call the Customer Support Contact Center at 800-FREDDIE.
