The eviction moratorium has completely expired and the US Supreme Court ruled against the CDC wanting to extend the moratorium. In addition to this, recently the Federal Unemployment Benefit also expired this week and the Biden Administration has no intention of bringing the unemployment benefit back as the economy is starting to open up.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaTUQruQjKQ In this video, I’m going to unpack what this all means and how real estate investors could potentially benefit from the eviction

EIDL Grant | SBA Investigating Frauds!!!!

EIDL Grant and EIDL Loan Applications are now being investigated for Fraud! It appears that SBA may have started investing the EIDL Grant, which is the free grant of $1k to $10k depending on your employee count, and the EIDL Loan application process for fraudulent applicants. These are the EIDL Grant and EIDL Loan application that was submitted by individuals who have no legitimate businesses and are lying on the application saying that they do have a business. An article was recently published by Washington Post about suspicious applications for the EIDL Grant and the EIDL loan and that the SBA is now beginning to take notice of this. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/07/15/sba-eidl-loan-program-coronavirus/ Interestingly enough, a large number of people living in Apartment locations have applied for the SBA EIDL Grant saying that they’re an agricultural business. 2 months ago, the SBA EIDL program was indeed closed and allowed applications only from agricultural businesses. So much so that the SBA managers have begun notifying the frontline workers to screen out for suspicious applications. Such suspicious applications apparently have just the right number of employees to qualify for the $10,000 grant, applicants calling SBA specifically about the grant while ignoring the loan terms. And while this may sound funny and dumb but some applicants even put down their apartment address as the business address claiming that they run a 10-employee barbershop and an auto-repair shop. And at the same time, I know my videos have helped potentially thousands of businesses who struggled to understand the SBA EIDL Grant and the Loan program. But it is a bit disappointing and frustrating that the information has also fed the wrong mouth. Because of all the fraudsters out there, there are fewer legitimate businesses that didn’t get the chance to save their business. Now, The SBA hasn’t commented on how they’re investing – which is a smart move. Especially since if SBA does disclose their investigative methods, the same fraudsters would try to skirt around the investigations. I do have some ideas as to how the SBA will investigate fraudulent applications but I won’t even begin to name ideas … well because of fraudsters. But here’s what I think the SBA should have done from the beginning to avoid this mess and I hope to see this implemented in the near future. As soon as the CARES Act was passed, I think the SBA should have gotten to work to build an up-front algorithm or a screening tool to match all the business Tax ID to the IRS database to see if there were any taxes or business-related filings were made. SBA could have easily screened out those applications that didn’t file a Schedule C, Form 8825, or Schedule E on the personal taxes, and Form 1020, the 1020S, or the partnership tax form of 1065. When you applied for the SBA EIDL Loan or the SBA EIDL Grant, you checked off a box saying that you agree to certain terms and conditions… One of those terms and condition reads: Not only is it illegal and immoral to lie but by you falsely applying for the SBA EIDL Loan, you might be taking away something that a legitimate business desperately needs to survive right now.

EIDL Grant is now CLOSED & Second Stimulus Check UPDATE!

EIDL Grant is now CLOSED & Second Stimulus Check UPDATE! The FREE $10,000 SBA EIDL Grant has been CLOSED! What does that mean? Can you still get the SBA EIDL Loan? Can I still apply for the Paycheck Protection Program? Well, I breakdown everything here and unpackage what you need to know in regards to the EIDL Grant, the Paycheck Protection Program, and I also give an update on the Second Stimulus Check and what you can expect! RIP to the free $10K EIDL Grant 😭 But you can still apply for the EIDL loan, which still needs to be paid back and can not be forgiven. Just as a quick refresher as to what you can actually use the EIDL Loan for general operating expenses; utility costs, lease for your office space, mortgage payments, payroll, inventory obligations. But you CAN NOT use the EIDL Loan for expanding business, buying a franchise, buying any fixed assets, or can’t use the money to actually pay off your mortgage. EIDL Grant Questions Answered + Hidden Process https://youtu.be/keySGMPvRjU If you applied for the EIDL Grant before July 12, 2020, I think you will be safe and still in consideration for the free $10,000 EIDL Grant. However, if you are just submitting for that now, you may have missed the chance for the free $1k-$10k EIDL Grant but you will still be considered for the EIDL Loan! Moving on to the Paycheck Protection Program, it is STILL OPEN but with just how the EIDL Grant just closed, you can expect the same thing to happen to the Paycheck Protection Program, so if you plan on applying for the PPP, DO IT NOW! And don’t forget the PPP is open to people who are self-employed and rumor has it, the entire funding can be forgiven completely, just make sure to verify with your lender beforehand! NOW! The Second Stimulus check update! So the HEROS act has been shot down in the Senate and by President Trump. BUT the Senate is working on a second stimulus check program that COULD be given out. And within the second stimulus check guidelines, if you make less than $40,000 a year, you could qualify for a second stimulus check. And even on the White House side, President Trump is in favor of a second stimulus check. Now for the unemployment checks, for one, they are set to expire at the end of July. But there may be another extension signed into law by Congress and the Senate here shortly with a smaller amount. But others have speculated that it could be mandated by the State of residence.

Mortgage Forbearance: NEW Changes Explained (CARES Act)

Mortgage Forbearance! With the economy the way it has been and the COVID re-surging in certain states, we’re starting to see businesses close back up which means that we may see another round of furloughing which ultimately leads back to employees and business owners not getting paid to pay for their mortgages. As part of the CARES Act, homeowners with federally backed mortgages can now request up to 6 months of forbearance plus an additional 6 months if needed. Few months ago, I did make a video about the mortgage forbearance and its potential crisis. Well just recently, a new change has been made on July 1st that affects mortgage forbearance for homeowners with FHA, VA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac loans. So let’s go ahead and break down what the new changes are and how it can affect your credit, future financing, and what options you have available after the forbearance. So what exactly is a mortgage forbearance and how did the CARES Act tweak it. Mortgage forbearance is a temporary relief of having to make your mortgage payment due to financial hardship. Traditionally, banks could potentially charge you fees, interest, and other penalties for taking a mortgage forbearance. Additionally, it could definitely have a bad stain on your credit for some time. However, with the CARES Act that came into effect back in March, banks cannot charge any fees, additional interest, or penalties on the missed payments under the forbearance nor could the banks report any negative information on your credit report other than a remark that your mortgage is on a forbearance. And remember, a forbearance doesn’t mean that your missed payments disappear. They have to be repaid with some kind of a plan. If you were on a forbearance but now you are able to make the payments for 3 months, you can now get new financing as if the forbearance never happened. That’s really good news! This rule used to be 12 months where you had to make satisfactory consecutive payments. And when it comes to credit, your credit will not be affected by the forbearance other than a remark/note on your credit. Which is also good news. So with that being said, let’s discuss the July 1st changes to the mortgage forbearance where the FHA has announced clarifications as to how missed payments will be treated under the mortgage forbearance plan (CARES Act) The BIG change is that any missed payments don’t have to be paid back in a lump sum manner at the end of the forbearance. Instead, the missed payments are now added to the back-end of the mortgage where if the home is sold, refinanced, or is paid off – the missed payments are then paid off. So if you’re currently in the mortgage forbearance plan… like right now… your mortgage loan servicer will contact you within 30 days of the plan to discuss the repayment plan so definitely lookout for that. In fact, Fannie Mae created a webpage with a script / possible scenarios for the repayment plan: https://singlefamily.fanniemae.com/servicing/covid-19-forbearance-script-servicer-use-homeowners?_ga=2.90498650.1380039291.1594312872-1385117231.1594312872 So just to wrap things up… taking a mortgage forbearance and its consequences have become less harsh and it sounds like there’s little to no consequences… Anyways, if you’re a really tight spot right now and taking the mortgage forbearance is the ONLY option, you can do so and I hope this video gave you some insights as to what it means to take a mortgage forbearance. #mortgageforbearance #caresact #realestate
