Ottawa Power Of Sale Stopped

How to Stop Power of Sale in Ottawa

When a borrower fails to pay his or her lender, the lender can take legal action against the borrower to recover the debt. Most banks and other financial institutions will give notice of power of sale after the borrower goes into default when paying his or her mortgage. The process that a lender commences to recover its loss is called power of sale.

Definition of Power of Sale

The power of sale is a process which gives a lender authority to take possession and sell the house if the borrower fails to bring the mortgage up to date (ie. redeem the mortgage). In this procedure, ownership changes hands after the power of sale is complete to a new owner. The proceeds of the sale then are used to pay off the mortgage which is in default.
• Ownership of the asset does not go to anyone until the power of sale process has been followed and the house has been sold
• The lender can use a realtor to sell the house.
• If by selling the house, the lender can raise more money than the borrower owes. In this case, the extra money goes to the borrower. If the lender raises less than the amount owed by the borrower, then that the borrower is liable for the difference.
• When the mortgage has been insured, then the lender is able to claim a loss, and the insurer will have to pay the lender. Then an insurer can take legal action against the homeowner to recover the cost of the claim.

Why Power of Sale takes place?

• A power of sale can happen as a result of different unfortunate events. A borrower may have lost his/her job and been unable to find another job.
• Another reason, power of sale can happen is when the borrower faces personal challenges like divorce, and are unable to make their monthly payments to the lender.

• Health issues that restrict a person from working are another reason why the borrower may not be able to make their payments to the lender.

• In the unfortunate event, of the borrower dying and if the beneficiaries are unable to handle the payment on the property, and if there is no life insurance.

• Failure of a business could also be a reason why payments can’t be met.

  • “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.”
