Being a Professional Real Estate Investor, one should have thorough knowledge about Foreclosure process in Canada. The word “foreclosure” is a nightmare for the property owner as well as for the Lender.

It happens all the time, regardless which cycle the market is going through, although the numbers do tend to go up during the Real Estate bust cycle.

Foreclosure Process Canada

Foreclosure is a legal action that a money-lender can take if the person who borrowed money using a mortgage stops paying back that mortgage. Foreclosure allows the lender to take or sell that person’s house by first getting a Court’s permission to do so.

As a Canadian Real Estate investor when a property-owner misses a mortgage payment or makes a late payment, the property owner will not automatically lose their property. Lenders don’t want to foreclose if they don’t have to because it is expensive and is a lengthy process. A lender will probably not start to foreclose until two or three months after the borrower has stopped paying. Normally, a lender will first send letters demanding 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.

In Canada Real Estate investing there are two main ways for the lender to recover the mortgage debt. They are :
1. Judicial Sale
a. Conducted under the supervision and authority of the Court
b. Lender must apply to the court to get permission to sell property
c. Extensive Court involvement in every step
d. Process involves lawsuit against borrower and other liable parties

Judicial Sale are Primarily used in:

• British Columbia
• Alberta
• Saskatchewan
• Manitoba
• Quebec
• Nova Scotia

2. Power of Sale

a. Allows lender to sell property without the involvement of the court. This particular method was created to keep the recovery process out of the court system and created the ability to make it happen at a much quicker rate than a foreclosure.
b. The Process is started by sending a notice to the borrower.
c. Deficiency Judgment: lender must seek action against borrower after property has been sold
Power of Sale is primarily used in:
• Newfoundland
• New Brunswick
• Prince Edward Island
• Ontario

Generally speaking, foreclosure is a losing proposition for all the parties concerned. The number of mortgage defaults varies from market to market, and there is no data available to demonstrate the exact figures. In Canada Real Estate investing , there are over 1,100 mortgage lenders, approximately. The five major lenders report a 0.26% to 0.65% default rate.

New statistics from the Canadian Bankers Association suggest more people in Alberta are struggling to pay their mortgages. Alberta has suffered the same in March 1983.It is all about the oil and gas.

If Oil and gas prices are high, the economy booms like a wild fire. But when the Oil and gas prices crash, it intends to bust the Real Estate market. During the boom many homeowners jumped into high price homes with low down payment. Since the prices have dropped, there is lot of underwater properties in Alberta.

“The numbers of Canadians who are unable to make mortgage payments are 18,371 which is 0.45 per cent of mortgage holders from major Canadian lenders as per Canadian Bankers Association. In Alberta the number of defaults is 4,212 which is 0.83 per cent of mortgage holders in Alberta.

They were unable to make payment for three months or more. An increase from the beginning of 2007 when 0.17 per cent of mortgages were in arrears. The situation is worse in Alberta than the rest of the country, where, historically, default rates average 0.45 per cent. In the United States, by way of comparison, close to 8 per cent of all mortgage holders are late on their payments says Navtaj Chandhoke, founder of Professional Real Estate Investors Group (PREIG) Canada.

Genworth the country’s second-largest mortgage insurer after Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., acknowledge that they are dealing with higher delinquencies in Alberta. The delinquency rate in its Alberta mortgage insurance portfolio was 0.59 per cent at March 31, compared to 0.18 per cent in Ontario, 0.31 per cent in B.C. and 0.27 per cent nationally.

While other provinces were able to recover as the recession eased, Alberta’s economy is back on track due to higher oil prices, disturbance in the Middle East. Calgary’s unemployment rate of 6.3 per cent is higher than the rest of Alberta at 5.7 per cent. A growing number of homeowners in Calgary are struggling to meet their mortgage payments as Calgary suffers a six-year real estate declining prices.

When the recession hit in 2008, oil prices plunged from $140/barrel to $35/barrel, the panicked homeowners rushed to sell in near-record numbers, flooding the market with inventory and putting renewed pressure on prices.

The Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals found that 84 per cent of homeowners could afford at least another $300 increase in their monthly payments before falling behind. There is more than $1-trillion of mortgages outstanding in Canada, meaning even a small default rate has implications for the broader economy. When interest rates interest rates climb higher, and that will put even more people behind the financial eight ball.

Canadian Foreclosures So, what actually is a Foreclosure?

In some provinces in Canada we have foreclosures; in other provinces we have power-of-sale. A foreclosure is a legal action where if the person who got a mortgage or borrowed money stops paying back the mortgage, the lender can take action. The foreclosure allows that lender, in certain provinces, to take or sell the person’s house with the Court’s permission to do so.Canadian Foreclosures

Canadian ForeclosuresWhat is a mortgage ?

A mortgage is a type of loan that involves two parties, the borrower and the lender, and the borrower must pay back the lender. When you get a mortgage to buy a house, you borrow money so you can pay back that amount in installments.
That begs the question, what happens if you miss a mortgage payment or can’t make the payment?

Do you lose your house? Lenders don’t want to go through the foreclosure process. Why? Because it is expensive and it takes a lot of time.
You will usually have 3 months of being in default before the lender starts to foreclose, this is called forbearance. Usually the lender will demand payment after you miss one, but if you don’t respond the lender will start the foreclosure process. Try working something out with the lender, ignoring them is a really bad decision. .

In the next article, we will discuss how to make money in foreclosures as a real estate investor.

Genworth’s losses on claims were $62-million in the fourth quarter, $11-million higher than the same period a year earlier. Genworth’s stress tests suggest it could withstand either a 40-per-cent drop in home prices or a sharp spike in unemployment before its insurance business became unprofitable. But if a 25-per-cent drop in house prices were coupled with a prolonged increase in unemployment into double-digit levels, it would affect profitability. Canada’s largest private sector mortgage insurer, has set up its own internal group of real estate agents to deal with foreclosure sales.genworth financial foreclosures

Foreclosure Process in British Columbia Canada

Foreclosure Process in British Columbia Canada is legal procedure when the property owners fails to make mortgage payments and the Lender is in legal process to recover their investments.The word foreclosure means to deprive a borrower [in default] of the right to redeem the mortgaged property.  In British Columbia, the foreclosure process it is a Judicial Sale.

foreclosure process

It is also an extinguishment. In legal terms, this means to pay off and satisfy in full, or to nullify. In a sense, a foreclosure is like a divorce proceeding, where the borrower and the lender become divorced under the mortgage terms. All of the foreclosures in British Columbia are subject to Judicial Sale proceedings. The lender can apply to the British Columbia Supreme Court for a judicial sale, also known as Court-ordered sale, which will then be carried out under strict Court orders.

The foreclosure begins with a demand letter, which offers the property-owner a very short time-frame in which to pay out the mortgage. In simple language, the lender is saying that the property-owner must pay up, or get sued. The next step is a petition filed in the British Columbia Supreme Court registry, where the foreclosure action begins.

Being a Canadian real estate investor, it is important to know the whole process so that a real estate investor can assist the panicked property owner, as well as the lender to resolve the default.

The Order Nisi serves to establish the time of redemption. The redemption period is the time period in which the property-owner can redeem the mortgage, as well as the amount required. The redemption period is usually set at six months. There are exceptions where the redemption period can be reduced to one single day, subject to the approval of the Courts.

When a lender applies for an Order Nisi, they will apprise the Court of the current value of the property, and ensure that it is high enough to satisfy the cost of the sale and claim off the property-owner. If the property is sold by the Courts, the lender is entitled to recover the difference between the sale proceeds and the mortgage debt from the property-owner.

Once a lender has been granted a conduct of sale, they act in the role of the lender pursuant to the Court order, solely for the disposition of the assets. They also have the right to list the property with a realtor on MLS.

When a potential buyer wants to make an offer through the realtor, the offer is prepared and directed at one of the lenders. At that point, the realtor confirms that the potential buyer will be negotiating with the lender, and the deal may be possible once the offer is also presented in the Courts. The offer can be subject to a sealed bid process.

The foreclosure process in British Columbia can be very complex, time-consuming, and very expensive for all the parties concerned.
