Thousands of Hurricane Harvey Flood Victims Unable to Pay Mortgages, May Cause Foreclosure Crisis

Harvey Flood Foreclosures

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, many homeowners are struggling to repair their homes and provide for their families. The extreme financial burdens of the past few months leave many unable to pay their mortgages. According to an article by CBN News, the widespread inability of Houston flood victims to pay their mortgages may soon lead to an extensive foreclosure crisis.

The majority of the homeowners who are delinquent on paying their mortgages have either been denied a flood insurance claim, are still waiting for it to be processed or received too little to cover repairs.

This is why approximately 44% of Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey were 90-days delinquent in their mortgage payments in December. The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey is truly leaving its mark.

The positive news is that some mortgage companies are offering a temporary break for those affected through offering a yearly suspension of payments or reduced payments. But not all Houston residents are being offered this relief.

The Texas Land Commissioner is also working to help give homeowners financial assistance during this extremely difficult time, but it’s not certain as to how many homeowners will benefit.

Overall, one of the most challenging obstacles that flood victims face is waiting. Waiting for their Texas flood insurance claims to be processed. Waiting for assistance.

This waiting game is prolonging the suffering of those affected. At first, finding ways to repair their homes seemed to be a daunting task. Now, many are trying to hold onto their beloved homes, or risk them being sold by the government.
