IF YOU HAVE A FEDERAL HOUSING AUTHORITY (FHA) MORTGAGE AND A SINGLE FAMILY HOME, THEN:
- Your servicer may not start or proceed with a foreclosure on your home until February 28, 2021.
- If your house has been foreclosed on, you may not be evicted until February 28, 2021.
- If you are having trouble making your mortgage payments, you should ask your servicer (the organization where you make your payments) for a forbearance before February 28, 2021. Your servicer is required to give you a forbearance and to extend it if necessary.
