The number of mortgages in forbearance increased in the second to last week of June. However, Black Knight reported a decline in the mortgage forbearances last week. Prior to the previous increase, forbearances saw a three-week period of declines and now look to be back on that course.
The number of active forbearance plans dipped by 104,000 from the previous week: reportedly the lowest weekly total since the first week of May. Black Knight believes this decrease may have occurred as more than half of the active plans, originally set up with a 90-day forbearance, were set to expire in June.
