Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac Suspend Foreclosures in Sandy Affected Areas

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recently announced that both will temporarily suspend foreclosure proceedings in federally declared disaster areas due to Superstorm Sandy. Borrowers in these areas will receive a 90-day mandatory suspension on foreclosure sales and evictions. Freddie Mac announced that by issuing the suspension, the communities and neighborhoods could focus on a faster recovery from the storm.
Freddie and Fannie are also offering storm victims the option to postpone mortgage payments by phone for up to 12 months. The lenders did so in order to introduce a quicker and easier forbearance method to borrowers. Additionally, they have ordered their insurers to expedite payments on insurance claims to help borrowers with destroyed properties and daily living expenses such as hotel rooms. Fannie and Freddie will also alleviate restrictions on payments to contractors so that repairs can be done faster.
