In LL-2020-07, COVID-19 Payment Deferral, we clarified that if the mortgage loan was previously modified pursuant to a HAMP modification under which the borrower remains in “good standing,” then the borrower will not lose any “pay for performance” incentives if the borrower was on a COVID-19 related forbearance plan or had a COVID-19 related hardship immediately preceding the COVID-19 payment deferral. We are clarifying that, additionally, the borrower will not lose any future HAMP “pay for performance” incentives if the borrower
- immediately reinstates the mortgage loan upon expiration of the COVID-19 related forbearance plan, or
- transitions directly from a COVID-19 related forbearance plan to a repayment plan.
