"If the property is occupied, our foreclosure attorneys will suspend the eviction to provide families a greater measure of certainty during the holidays," said Tracy Mooney, Senior Vice President of Servicing and REO at Freddie Mac. 

The suspension will apply only to eviction lockouts related to Freddie Mac-owned REO properties and will not affect other pre- or post-foreclosure processes.

Freddie Mac was established by Congress in 1970 to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the nation's residential mortgage markets. Freddie Mac supports communities across the nation by providing mortgage capital to lenders. Over the years, Freddie Mac has made home possible for one in six homebuyers and more than five million renters.
