Do You Need Help With Foreclosure Debt?
Mortgages in Canada are considered a secured debt. Bankruptcy only eliminates unsecured debts. For that reason, when you default on mortgage payments and then file for bankruptcy the foreclosure process will still continue. The lender can still sell your home to get their money back. It’s important to speak to an expert to discuss the possible debt solutions if you are facing a foreclosure.
Legally, lenders are allowed to start the foreclosure process when you miss a single payment. But most mortgage lenders will start contacting you as soon as you miss two payments. By the third payment the lender can threaten to start the foreclosure process. Allow us to deal with the lender on your behalf and it will be just a matter of time before the burden is lifted off your shoulders.
Talk to your lender
Don’t wait to miss several mortgage payments to contact your lender. If you haven’t missed any payments, you can talk to your lender and let them know you are facing a financial hardship. You may qualify for a special hardship program that allows you to make payments that you can afford. If your mortgage is insured you may qualify for a special program. Speak to us about the options that may be right for you. If you are considering selling your home in order to move to another property or find something affordable to rent, speak to the lender first. Don’t just rush into selling your home before you consider other debts that may affect your ability to pay the mortgage. Sometimes dealing with those debts first can be the best solution to avoid a foreclosure.
