Forbearances Down 53K, All Eyes On Sept. Expirations: Black Knight

The final week of August brought a 53,000 decline in the number of active forbearance plans, driven by a 23,000 reduction in plans among FHA/VA loans, according to new data from Black Knight. Plan volumes also improved among both GSE (-20,000) and portfolio/PLS (-10,000) loans from the week prior.

Black KnightAccording to Black Knight's McDash Flash forbearance tracker, as of Aug. 31, 1.71 million borrowers remain in COVID-19 related forbearance plans, including 1.8% of GSE, 5.6% of FHA/VA and 4.0% of portfolio held and privately securitized mortgages.

This puts plan volumes down nearly 9% from the same time last month as the market braces for the large wave of final plan expirations taking place in September. Of the 629,000 plans slated to be reviewed for extension/removal this month, nearly 400,000 are set to reach their final plan expirations based on current allowable forbearance term lengths.

Significant volume declines could be seen in coming weeks as those plans reach their final expirations and exiting borrowers return to making mortgage payments in October.
