Fannie Mae Extends Help for Homeowners Impacted by Hurricane
Sandy 
WASHINGTON, DC - Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) announced today that it
will extend the suspension of foreclosure sales and eviction
lockouts for borrowers impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The new 90-day extension applies to homeowners with properties or
employment within the FEMA declared disaster area eligible for
individual assistance.  This follows an earlier 90-day
suspension of foreclosure sales and evictions in the impacted
areas. 
“We know that many homeowners are still dealing with the
devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy,” said Leslie Peeler,
senior vice president, National Servicing Organization, Fannie
Mae.  “We continue to do our part to help impacted homeowners.
This additional time will allow homeowners to continue to do
what is necessary for their families to get back on their feet.” 
In addition to the foreclosure sale and eviction moratorium,
homeowners impacted by Hurricane Sandy may be eligible for
forbearance, loan modifications or waived late payment charges. 
Any borrowers impacted by Hurricane Sandy should contact their
servicer immediately to pursue assistance.  In addition,
homeowners can reach out to Fannie Mae through one of twelve
Mortgage Help Centers located across the country.  Contact
information can be found at www.knowyouroptions.com or by
