What actions are required when initiating or proceeding with foreclosure proceedings on Fannie Mae loans under military indulgence?

The servicer must attempt to ascertain the military status of the mortgagor(s) before initiating foreclosure proceedings and must comply with specific state or local laws that address the effect of the SCRA on the foreclosure process, or that impose other restrictions or limitations on foreclosure for servicemembers.

The servicer must stay any foreclosure proceedings that were already in process or postpone the initiation of foreclosure proceedings against a servicemember eligible for military indulgence. The servicer must also provide a 12–month extended stay of foreclosure and other legal proceedings from the date on which military service ends. The servicer must not attempt to obtain the eligible servicemember’s written consent or petition the court to continue or commence foreclosure proceedings.

For more information please see: D2-3.4-01: Military Indulgence.
