President Trump signed the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018” (Public Law No. 115-91) on December 12, 2017. Section 557 of that Act amends, once again, section 701(d) of the Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-154; 126 Stat.1165). This latest amendment extends (through December 31, 2019) the expanded provision of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) that safeguards servicemembers against foreclosure for one year following the completion of their service. Absent further amendments, the protection from foreclosure time period under 50 U.S.C. § 3953 of the SCRA will revert back to the prior version (i.e., 90 days) on January 1, 2020.
