The impact of COVID-19 on mortgage industry has been far-reaching and borrowers are feeling the pinch. Mortgage delinquencies the world over have witnessed an increasing trend, and in some cases, have hit record levels. To help distressed borrowers, governments across the world have introduced forbearance or payment relief measures. While in the short run, these relief programs will reduce the burden on borrowers, as time goes by and financial problems accrue, loan defaults are likely to rise. Lenders and servicers will therefore need to streamline the default servicing process and be prepared to mitigate and address loan defaults.
