FHA Suspends Foreclosures and Evictions Amid COVID-19
Today, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) published Mortgagee Letter 2020-04, “Foreclosure and Eviction Moratorium in Connection with the Presidentially-Declared COVID-19 National Emergency,” which announces an immediate foreclosure and eviction moratorium for all FHA-insured single-family mortgages for a 60-day period. Read today’s Press Release from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on the subject.
The Secretary of HUD authorized these moratoriums as a result of the national emergency declared by the President of the United States. They are part of a broader federal government effort to address impacts to the financial well-being of individuals, families, and businesses, and to ensure families are not displaced during this critical period.
