Federal Housing Administration FHA Mortgages

Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

FHA does not require lump sum repayment at the end of the forbearance. Homeowners on special COVID-19 Forbearance will be assessed by their servicer first for eligibility of FHA’s COVID-19 Standalone Partial Claim home retention option no later than at the end of the forbearance period.

The COVID-19 home retention option, called the COVID-19 Standalone Partial Claim, places amounts you owe into a junior lien that is repaid when you refinance your mortgage or sell your home or your mortgage otherwise terminates. If you do not qualify for the COVID-19 Standalone Partial Claim, servicers of FHA-insured mortgages offer other solutions to help you repay the missed payments over time.
