Minna  it is good advice for homeowners as well as potential homeowners to talk with someone knowledge about the impact forbearances have had, and will have.  While forbearances provided some short term relief, they have also caused issues, especially forbearance on student loans.  Student loan forbearances have had a major impact on debt-to-income ratios.

The problem with any forbearance or even loan mod is that folks dont realize that it's not just the principal of their loan affected. Interest and fees continue to accrue, and they end up owing a much higher balance than expected. Over 90% of the clients I have had who have ultimately failed their loan workouts have no idea how they owe so much more than expected. Banks really do line their own pockets with these workouts to "help the people".
