Types of Second Mortgages

A Hamilton 2nd mortgage comes in different types. They can be institutional loans or private loans secured on a property. Home Equity Lines of Credit are also loans that are secured, often in second position, but technically are not mortgages. They are secured lines of credit. Some lenders provide Home Equity Loans and some lenders also provide home equity credit cards secured against the property behind previously registered mortgages in 1st or 2nd positions.

  • Home Equity Line of Credit

This kind of loan is also referred to as a HELOC. It is a line of credit that goes up and down relative to the amount that the home owner draws or pays back to the line of credit. It is, however, secured against the value of the property and has a fixed limit beyond which you draw any further. This maximum limit of the line of credit is set by the lender, which in most cases is a bank or credit union. Interest typically accrues daily to the balance and paid monthly. It differs from a fixed loan or mortgage in that the interest rates can fluctuate. This particular type of loan is not really a 2nd mortgage but is more handy that a 2nd mortgage when you need the flexibility to finance expenses over a short period of time. A perfect example would be financing a home renovation project.

  • Home Equity Loan

A Home Equity Loan is essentially a mortgage or loan secured against a property. The borrower can apply for an amount of money and then pay it back over time. This particular kind of 2nd mortgage may come in handy when you need funds to pay things like tax arrears.

Brief Analysis of First and Second Mortgages

In most cases, you will find that the interest rates on 2nd mortgage are typically significantly higher than 1st mortgages. The reason for this is because if a borrower defaults, the primary or 1st lender will get proceeds first from any power of sale. Only once the the 1st has been paid out and any outstanding property taxes will the 2nd lender get paid. Also, if a home owner defaults on their obligations to pay the 1st mortgage, the 2nd mortgage holder has to make the payments to the 1st mortgage holder and property taxes to avoid interest and fees accruing. Too many accrued fees and interest means that a 2nd mortgage holder may end up not getting their money back if the property has to go through power of sale.

Benefits of Hamilton 2nd Mortgage

  • It enables a home owner to consolidate high interest debts into one simple payment.
  • If the 2nd Mortgage holder is a private lender, while the rates of interest may be higher, the speed at which a private lender can fund a mortgage is a lot quicker than a conventional institutional lender.

  • “The bank would not lend money on our farm unless we showed them financial statements. Since my husband passed away, my son and I were struggling to keep the farm afloat. We just needed more time. The third mortgage you got us was the miracle we needed. You believed in us and we are so grateful. Thank you.”

  • “My pig farm always made good profit but last year was brutal for the whole industry. I fell behind on my mortgage. I showed FCC that my loss was just a temporary blip and asked them to give me some leeway but they started a foreclosure anyway. Thanks for getting me that private loan to buy me some time until I’m profitable again.”

  • “My ex-wife’s lawyer gave me 30 days to buy out her half of our house or have it put up for sale. I had no job and I was in bankruptcy. My bank manager laughed at me. I thought it was hopeless until I saw your flyer. I don’t know how you qualified me for the mortgage. You’re a miracle worker. Thank you!”

  • “We were 6 months behind on our mortgage and the Sheriff was coming in 5 days to lock us out of our home. Every other mortgage broker said NO! I can’t believe you were able to get us a second mortgage that fast. You saved our home and I will refer everyone I know to you.”

    C.C., Oshawa, ON
  • “The bank refused to value my property based on all 211 acres. They said that their ‘rules’ limited it to 5 acres. Personally, I think that’s biased against farmers. I didn’t know that you had lenders who would value my property on all the acres. I finally got a large enough loan to tie all my debt into one payment. Thanks!”

  • “Every time I’d walk into a bank and say the word ‘farm’ the suit on the other side of the desk would look at me like I was from another planet! They had one agricultural ‘specialist’ for the area that was not much better. Then I went to 4 mortgage brokers before I stumbled on your company. Your rates were lower than the bank.”

    M.D., Bradford, ON
  • “Our credit was destroyed after we had a bad year. We needed to expand our facility. I explained to the bank that the expansion would make us profitable. I proved it on paper. They still declined us. I never heard of your ‘no questions asked’ private loans but you gave me $500,000 with no paperwork. That was a Godsend. My wife and I appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts and we won’t let you down.”

    R.Q., Woodville, ON

Matthew has worked hard for me over the last few years… I have a very high level of trust in Matthew and Expert Mortgage, and will surely recommend you to anyone I know who is in need. Thank You.”
