Streams of Income

As a full-time Canadian real estate investor, we must fully understand the foreclosure process in our own province in order to both advise the owners we are helping and to take advantage of the legal processes and time lines to increase our potential streams of income.

We are continuing the article on the Foreclosure process in Alberta. We are up to the point where the lawyer has sent the defaulting owner a demand letter to which there has been no response.

Statement of Claim

The lawyer then issues a statement of claim to the courts. If, at that point, the lawyer does not hear anything, the lawyer searches at the courts to see if there was a statement of defense filed. If not, a notice of default is filed, which is basically saying “this client has defaulted. The mortgage payments were this much, the term was until whenever, the rate of interest was such and such.”

The Order Nisi

The owner will then be summoned to court to appear in front of a judge. At this point, an Order Nisi (order for sale) is filed, and the judge will assign a redemption period based on what the borrower’s chances of paying off this property are.

Redemption Period

The redemption period is typically six months, which means that the owner gets to live in the property without paying for six months(although the mortgage payments, legal fees and interest are still racking up.

This period and the time leading up to this point is a golden opportunity for an investor to get in there, make a deal to take over that property, pay off the arrears, and be able to make some amazing money. In our real estate training we go into this process in great depth.

Order Nisi

Once the Order Nisi is filed, and the mode of sale is ordered by the courts there is still time to help that owner but we have to become even more creative in our strategies. This is why knowledge, skill and education are key in making lots of money in Canadian Foreclosures.

Canadian Foreclosure Process

Canadian Foreclosure Process

 

A professional Canadian Real Estate investor should understand thoroughly about Foreclosure process in Canada.

The word “foreclosure” is a nightmare for the property owner as well as for the Lender. Although the numbers usually increase during the real estate bust cycle; it happens all the time.

If the person who borrowed money using a mortgage fail to pay back that mortgage, money-lender can use foreclosure as a legal action. Foreclosure allows the lender to take or sell that person’s house by first getting a Court’s permission to do so.

The property owner will not lose their property right away when he misses a mortgage payment or makes a late payment. Lenders don’t want to foreclose if they don’t have to because it is expensive and is a lengthy process. Not until two or three months after the borrower has stopped paying, would the lender probably start to foreclose. Usually, a lender will send out letters requiring payment. Then, if they don’t receive a reply, the lender will usually start to foreclose and to sue at the same time. The foreclosure process differs from province to province in Canada.

Missing a mortgage payment in Canada

Step one: contact your Mortgage lender as soon as possible

Canadian mortgage lenders prefer not to go through foreclosure or power of sale process. Their goal is to safeguard their investment and assist Canadian homeowners to find a reasonable and affordable solution.

Canadian homeowners can be very reluctant to contact the Canadian mortgage lender or bank due to fear and not knowing what to expect.

With the majority of Canadian mortgage lenders, being forced out of the home happens only when all efforts and options have been fully explored.

The Canadian mortgage lenders may be able to offer you following four options

*Change amortization to lower monthly payments

*Switching from a variable rate to a fixed mortgage to provide a consistent payment plan you can budget for without fear of any future interest rate increase

*Refinancing or second mortgage

*There may be an option to add missed payments to the back of your current mortgage

There is limited action the Canadian mortgage lender or bank will take in the early days besides calling you and remind you to pay in time.

2Step two: Inform the Canadian mortgage lender or bank if you are about the miss next payment

So call the Canadian mortgage lender or bank manager. Canadian mortgage lender or bank manager may not always be able to offer solutions but they can assist you to downsize to sell your property, refinance or obtain a loan from family and friends.

Step three: Ignore and hoping all will disappear3

Ignoring is certainly drawing the attention of Canadian mortgage lenders or bank. Cooperation works much better and save cost and hassle for all parties in concern.

Step four: Make mortgage payments first rather than unsecured debt

Make mortgage payments to keep your home

4The general rule is if you want to keep your home, your mortgage should take priority over paying the unsecured debts. You have many more options to deal with unsecured debt vs. secured debt.

Step five: Consolidate all your debts into Mortgage

The cheapest way to rent or borrow money is first mortgage on your principal residence in Canada. Before you stop paying the unsecured debt to make the mortgage affordable, you should seek professional advice and ensure you have a plan in place to deal with the unsecured debt.

Finding a solution to deal with the other debts i.e. credit cards, lines of credit, consolidate loans etc. is all the help people need to obtain a positive cash flow each month and make the mortgage easily affordable.

One of the key things to look at if you are about to miss a mortgage payment is whether you can afford the house you live in, or whether you’re over-extended.

If you decide your house is unaffordable then there are options.

Obviously if there is equity in the house, selling the house is the best option.

If you are in a negative equity situation then this needs to be carefully planned and professional advice is required.
