The Suicide Clause

The Suicide Clause

As a full-time Canadian real estate investor, we must be very aware of the types of mortgages that we take. During our time as an investor, we will  do deals where we do not take the mortgage ourselves. In other words, we may joint venture with someone who does the qualifying. We will, however, be doing deals where we do have to get a mortgage.

Stay Out of the Repair Business

There are ways to be able to alleviate this  and have the tenant want to be responsible for small insignificant repairs and never bother you with them, thus keeping your maintenance to zero. Is this possible?

Foreclosure Process in Alberta Part 2

Foreclosure Process in Alberta Part 2

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.

In a future article, we will talk about all the advantages that the investor has to be able to capture equity in a property and be able to make tons of money while helping the person that is in trouble at the same time.

Mortgage Jargon – Part 2

Mortgage Jargon – Part 2

If you missed the previous article – Mortgage Jargon – Part 1

We will continue in our series on mortgage jargon. Many of these references should or will soon become apart of your language in real estate investing.

Total debt/service ratio

This ratio is calculated by your mortgage broker. This is a standard by most lenders which states that no more than 40% of your gross income can be utilized to service your property. Your total debts are principle interest, property taxes, heating, 1/2 condo fees, plus all other monthly obligations, such as credit cards, leases, loans, lines of credit, etc.

Switch

This term applies to changing lenders at the end of a term. When a mortgage is at the end of it's term, or coming to the end of it's term, another lender may pay the costs of switching over to their company. This means that if there is a mortgage penalty, the other lender may pay that penalty for you to break your mortgage and move the mortgage to them. They may also offer you a reduced rate to come to them from a competitor.

Cap rate

A cap rate is a calculation that is used mostly in the commercial side of real estate. The the fair market value is divided into net operating income (rent minus expenses, not including mortgage). Capitalization rate is essentially a percentage calculation that is better when higher. The higher the result, the better rate of return.

Closed Mortgage

A closed mortgage is closed for the term, usually 5 years, but it can be anywhere from 1-5 years. It cannot be paid out unless there is a penalty involved which can be discharged at a cost of either three months interest, or an interest rate differential.

Interest Rate Differential

The IDR is a penalty for an early pre-payment of all or part of the mortgage outside the normal payment terms, or even pre-payment terms. This is calculated as the difference between the existing rate and the rate for the term remaining, multiplied by the principle outstanding and the balance of the term. For example, if the mortgage balance is $100,000 at 9% with 24 months remaining and the current 2-year rate is 6.5%, the different between 6.5% and 9% is 2.5%. The interest rate differential is $100,000 outstanding mortgage, times 2-years times 2.5% will equal $5,000 dollars.

High Ratio Mortgage

A mortgage that is greater than 80% loan to value(LTV). What is loan to value?  It is the ratio of loan compared to the value of the property. For instance: if the mortgage was a 70% loan to value on a $100,000 property, the value of the loan would be $70,000.

Equity

Equity is the difference between the value of what you can sell your property for (or fair market value), compared to what is owed against it. So the more equity in a property for a real estate investor, the better.

We will continue in our mortgage jargon series in a following article.
