1.5.6.1 Overview

On August 29, 2017, the Department of Veterans Affairs distributed Circular 26-17-23 in the wake of Hurricane Harvey to describe measures that mortgagees may take to provide relief to affected borrowers.187 The circular directs servicers and borrowers to review the VA Guidance on Natural Disasters.188 The circular is effective until July 1, 2018, when it will be rescinded.

On September 18, 2017, September 27, 2017, and October 13, 2017, the Department of Veterans Affairs distributed Circulars 26-17-27, 26-17-28, and 26-17-31, regarding Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and the California Wildfires.189 They contain substantially the same material as Circular 26-17-23, except that their rescission date is October 1, 2018.

References to “the Circular,” below, are to Circular 26-17-23, but since the information is the same as that in Circulars 26-17-27, 26-17-28, and 26-17-31, it essentially applies to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and the California Wildfires.
