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.
