HUD and Banking Regulators Offer Borrower and Institution Relief Following Hurricane Sandy


Recently, HUD has made a series of announcements regarding housing relief for individuals displaced by Hurricane Sandy. For example, on October 30 HUD granted a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures and forbearance on foreclosures of FHA-insured mortgages. Similar announcements have followed for victims in New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Also on October 30, the Federal Reserve Board, the OCC, and the FDIC issued a statement on supervisory practices impacted by the hurricane. For example, the regulators stated that “prudent efforts to adjust or alter terms on existing loans in affected areas should not be subject to examiner criticism.”
