Tenants who live in a property with a mortgage loan purchased or securitized by Freddie Mac may be eligible for certain tenant protections.
These protections could include:
- Protection from eviction solely for nonpayment of rent
- Giving the tenant at least a 30-day notice to vacate
- Not charging the tenant late fees or penalties for nonpayment of rent
- Allowing the tenant flexibility to repay back rent over time and not in a lump sum
The protections that apply may include protections under the CARES Act, under state or local law, or if the property is in “forbearance” (a type of agreement between a lender and your landlord).

The street address on file for a property or community may be different from a renter's mailing addresses. When entering a property or community address, try using the street address of the building (for single building properties), the leasing office, the clubhouse, or the community. Alternatively, try searching by zip code to see a list of properties instead.
