18.104.22.168 Late Charge Suspension
Past versions of Fannie Mae’s Servicing Guide have contained a requirement for servicers to waive late charges caused when a borrower “incurred additional expenses or loss of income due to the disaster or needs additional time to receive a pending insurance settlement.”107 However, the current version of the Servicing Guide addresses only required suspension of assessment or collection of late charges during forbearance.108
