Second mortgage OntarioOwning a home is an ongoing commitment; new responsibilities and issues can arise at any time. A 2nd residential mortgage can help you to fund additional expenses and other financial needs as long as you have equity on your home.

A second mortgage is a secured loan taken against a property that already has a mortgage. If your first mortgage leaves an equity gap, then you may qualify for a 2nd residential mortgage.

There are several reasons why a homeowner may consider getting a 2nd residential mortgage, such as:

  • Difficulty in getting approved for a personal loan (secure or unsecured), perhaps due to self-employment
  • Higher interest on the remaining balance when renewing your mortgage, perhaps due to a lower credit rating compared to when you borrowed your first mortgage, such that the extra cost is comparable to borrowing some more
  • The need for a cheaper option if breaking your mortgage midterm attracts a high penalty

A second mortgage poses a lower risk to the lender because your home acts as the collateral. A second mortgage has a higher interest rate than a first mortgage.

Comprehensive Services to Suit Your Needs

Our Northwood Mortgage Agents and Brokers can help you navigate the process and settle on the right type of second mortgage for your needs. The common options for second mortgages are:

  • Home equity loan – Comes in the form of a single lump sum that you’re required to repay through fixed monthly payments for a specific period of time. A home equity loan is ideal for homeowners who know the exact amount of money they need and would prefer to receive it at once.
  • Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC) – Gives you access to funds in a similar way to credit cards, such that you can borrow any amount you need, provided it’s within the set credit limit.

At Northwood Mortgage, we take the time to listen to your needs and look at the whole picture to approve your first mortgage. This includes situations that fall outside traditional lending categories and include:

  • Self-employed
  • Non-income verifiers
  • Credit issues
  • Financial distress situations
  • New immigrants

First & Second Residential Mortgage-Things to Consider

A second mortgage depends on the value of your home’s equity, determined by subtracting your mortgage balance from the current value of the home. If your home is worth $300,000 but owes $140,000 on your mortgage, you have $160,000 in home equity.

Depending on the requirements of the lender and your credit score, you may be allowed to borrow up to 85% of your current home equity.

Most lenders have the following requirements when applying for a second residential mortgage:

  • A certain minimum percentage of equity in your home

Consult your local home loan expert. After finding an option that might be suitable for your needs, consider visiting Northwood Mortgage for consultation. Our experts will answer any questions you may have and ensure that you’re making the right decision.
