Covid 19 – Mortgage Payment Break for Local Authority Borrowers (14th April 2020)

The Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, Mr Eoghan Murphy TD, confirmed on 14th April 2020 that forbearance arrangements have been put in place for local authority mortgage products.

“Measures to support local authority home loan borrowers have now been agreed. These measures will ensure that a mortgage payment break of up to three months will be made available to local authority borrowers who are in need of it.”

The approach being rolled out will ensure that no additional costs to the original home loan balance will arise for the borrower who avails of these measures, as borrowers are not charged interest for the period of the break. This break is available to those who have already faced mortgage difficulties due to the COVID-19 emergency and those who may encounter difficulties in the near future.

Any borrower facing difficulties due to COVID-19 are urged to contact Kerry County Council, Housing Loans Department as soon as possible by email to loans@kerrycoco.ie or by ringing 066 7183910
