Foreclosure Protection

Foreclosure protection is available for homeowners and small landlords who have federally-backed mortgages through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This includes landlords with four or fewer properties (whether or not they’re owner-occupied). 
Homeowners or small landlords who don’t have federally-backed loans can contact their loan servicers to request forbearance. Your lender must provide detailed reasons if they deny your forbearance request. You can contest a denial.
