Income Interruption Before Closing:

In light of the current environment related to COVID-19. Where a lender has been advised that a borrower with a previously approved application is experiencing income disruption due to COVID-19 and the borrower still wants to move ahead with the application, the mortgage insurer may proceed with its previous mortgage loan insurance approval… Note: “each application is treated on a case-by-case basis and that it is up to the lender to decide if the application may move ahead or not.”

Appraisal Stop-gap:

Lenders have announced that they will accept “Modified Full Appraisals.”  That's when an exterior inspection of the property will be performed but an interior inspection is not taking place.  The appraiser will take photos of the interior from the outside (through windows), where possible.  The appraiser may use video chat tools (i.e. Facetime, Skype, Duo, etc.) and ask the homeowner to walkthrough the home.  Gather information about the property and characteristics via a phone interview with the homeowner and/or listing agent and provide current interior pictures of the property from the MLS, the homeowner or listing agent.
