Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac Announce an “Eviction Moratorium” for the Holidays
The holiday season should be a magical time of year. However, for a growing number of families, the usual holiday celebrations are trumped by financial troubles, foreclosure and the looming threat of eviction.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac offered some relief to such families by announcing an “Eviction Moratorium” through January 2, 2012. During this time, families living in foreclosed homes will not be forced to leave, though legal proceedings may continue as scheduled.
Undoubtedly, Fannie and Freddie’s efforts will prove comforting to homeowners who find themselves in this situation. However, the relief is short lived.
Remember, the “eviction moratorium” is only a short reprieve, so we urge you to continue reaching out to homeowners during the holiday season. Simply knowing that options exist can provide them with peace of mind. And during the holidays, a little peace of mind is an invaluable gift.
