As we have seen, the coronavirus (COVID-19) has continued to evolve and things are changing at a rapid pace. We understand that you may be facing financial difficulties or have concerns about your mortgage payments as we move through this pandemic.

When unforeseen financial circumstances impact your ability to make regular mortgage payments, it’s important for you to take quick action. With early intervention, cooperation, and a well-executed plan, you can work together with your mortgage lender to find a solution to your financial difficulties.

What Actions Can You Take?

If you find yourself facing financial difficulties, as a result of job loss or lay off, family income reduction, or for other reasons, it can be an overwhelming experience leaving you feeling uncomfortable and unsure of what to do.

The first step is to contact your mortgage lender before you miss a payment, at the first sign of financial difficulty.

Ask the mortgage professional about information on the options available for managing your financial situation; and keep the mortgage professional informed as circumstances evolve.

Be prepared to clarify your full financial picture. In order to help your mortgage professional fully understand your financial situation, before meeting with them, prepare a detailed list of financial obligations including any credit cards, loans, household bills with the amounts owing and their due dates. Be sure to include information about your current income situation, savings accounts, investments, and any other assets.
