Credit bureau reporting UPDATED Apr. 8, 2020
In response to the CARES Act, we are acknowledging that the servicer must report the status of the mortgage loan to the credit bureaus in accordance with the FCRA, including as amended by the CARES Act, for borrowers affected by the COVID-19 emergency. This supersedes our guidance on Mar. 18, 2020, which instructed servicers to suspend reporting the status of a mortgage loan to credit bureaus during an active forbearance plan, or a repayment plan or Trial Period Plan where the borrower is making the required payments as agreed, even though payments are past due, as long as the delinquency is related to a hardship resulting from COVID-19.
