Understanding the CARES Act Forbearance and Columbia Foreclosure Relief


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans faced financial hardships, struggling to make ends meet and facing the potential loss of their homes. To provide relief during these unprecedented times, the U.S. government introduced the CARES Act Forbearance program. As Columbia Foreclosure Relief, we want to ensure that homeowners in our community are well-informed about this program and the approaching deadline. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the key aspects of the CARES Act Forbearance, its benefits, and the importance of taking action before the deadline expires.

Understanding the CARES Act Forbearance:

The CARES Act Forbearance is a crucial initiative that offers temporary relief to homeowners who are facing financial difficulties due to the pandemic. Under this program, eligible homeowners can request a forbearance period, during which their mortgage payments are temporarily paused or reduced. The duration of the forbearance period varies depending on the circumstances and the mortgage servicer, but it can be as long as 12 months.

Benefits of the CARES Act Forbearance:

  1. Temporary relief: The forbearance period provides a breathing space for homeowners, allowing them to allocate their resources to other essential expenses during times of financial hardship.
  2. No penalties or additional fees: Participating in the CARES Act Forbearance program will not result in penalties or additional fees. It’s designed to alleviate financial burdens without imposing further financial strain.
  3. Protection against foreclosure: While the mortgage payments are temporarily paused or reduced, the homeowner is protected from foreclosure actions by their mortgage servicer.
