Little Movement in Forbearance Volumes: Black Knight

The number of active forbearance plans fell by 18,000 (-1.4%) this week, leaving 1.58 million U.S. homeowners in COVID-19 forbearance as of September 14, according to recent data from Black Knight. 

Black Knight 100x100Declines of 11,000 and 10,000 among FHA/VA and GSE loans respectively were partially offset by an 3,000 rise in PLS/portfolio plans. Overall, forbearances are now down 182,000 (-10%) from the same time last month, with the strongest decline (-13%) seen among GSE plans.

The population of mortgage holders in COVID-19 related forbearance plans represents 3% of all active mortgages, including 1.7% of GSE, 5.2% of FHA/VA and 3.8% of portfolio held and privately securitized loans.

In terms of forbearance plan starts, 15,000 new plans were initiated since last Tuesday, down slightly from last week’s 16,000 starts. Meanwhile 34,000 plans were restarted, down from last week's volume of 35,000. Meanwhile, in typical mid-month behavior, plan exits dipped slightly this week, but are expected to ramp up in coming weeks.

More than 460,000 plans are still slated for review for extension/removal over the final week of September, with some 300,000 set to reach their final plan expirations based on current allowable forbearance term lengths. This could lead to significant movement in volumes entering early October.
