What is Second Mortgage?

A second mortgage allows you to borrow against property in addition to a primarily mortgaged property already in place by placing a new mortgage in a junior/secondary position. You can secure this mortgage by using your house as collateral and tapping into your property’s equity.

Real estate is essentially a fixed asset. Over time this asset accumulates value. By tapping into your home equity and getting a second mortgage in Canada you can finance your goals and projects without selling your real estate.


Pay for Renovation

Pay for Renovations or Improvements

With this mortgage, you can finance renovations or upgrades of your home. Retrofits and renovations are excellent ways to increase property value. A better-maintained property also generates a higher profit when sold. You can easily use your 2nd mortgage as an investment towards your real estate.

Consolidate Debt

Consolidate Debt

Getting a second mortgage in Canada is a strategy that you can use to consolidate all your debt. Any liabilities, such as lines of credit, car loans and credit cards, can be paid off with debt consolidation. You can group all your debts into one monthly payment. With a lower interest rate and easier payments, your debts are reduced, resulting in more cash flow and can boost your credit score.

Investment Income

By tapping into your equity, you can create an additional revenue stream for yourself and your family. Using your equity, a mortgage can be used to purchase an investment property, invest in stocks, purchase land, buy a vacation home or fund other investments. This can be a great opportunity for borrowers looking to expand their financial portfolios.

High Debt and past due bills can negatively impact your credit score. This can make it hard to qualify for a mortgage. If you have a bad credit history or a low credit score because of debt, we have some solutions. Getting a 2nd mortgage and paying off high interest debt can build your credit and eradicate any liabilities negatively impacting your credit score.

How is Freedom Capital’s Second Mortgage Different?

Nowadays, conventional banks are very rigorous in their mortgage process. A conventional bank bases its approval on two criteria: income and credit. This causes limitations of how much you are approved for and restrictive lending offerings. You might go to a bank in hopes of applying for a mortgage of $700,000 only to find out the bank will approve $600,000 or even less.

At Freedom Capital, we offer lending options to our clients that conventional banks are unable to help with. We offer freedom to look into various options. Our clients and their needs are our topmost priority.

How to Apply Second Mortgage?

The application process for a 2nd mortgage can be very simplistic if you meet the basic requirements. Our approach is different from others:

  1. Rather than extensively evaluating our client’s income or creditworthiness, we only look at equity
  2. Valuation and total encumbrances(mortgages) are our focus.
  3. If a borrower meets our minimum equity requirement, they can get approved for a 2nd mortgage with ease.

Freedom Capital has one of the fastest turnaround times in the industry. Subject to the type of mortgage you are applying for, you can potentially get mortgage approval in 24 hours*.
Since these mortgages are riskier for lenders, they have higher interest rates. However, at Freedom Capital, we don’t get paid on rate, we obtain terms that make sense for our borrowers.
To get a second mortgage you are not obligated to work with the same lender. You can reach out to new lenders and compare deals to settle on the best option for you.
Banks approve loans based on two major factors;
  • Your credit score
  • your net income.
If your credit score is below 680 and your income is not high enough to cover your mortgage and your other credit facilities, you will NOT get approved. At Freedom Capital, you are not a ‘number’ to us! We use a common-sense approach while approving your loans. No red tape, no waiting for weeks. We simply require the equity and will provide you with a viable, no-obligation option.

A mortgage broker can help save your time, energy and money. It is better to work with a broker as they help borrowers understand the mortgage market. With a broker by your side, you can find the 2nd mortgage you need.

Absolutely!  Unlike banks who only look at income, we can leverage the equity you have in other real estate assets. 

With a Freedom Capital 2nd mortgage you can cover a variety of costs, including but not limited to:

  • Renovation, construction or improvement of a property
  • Debt consolidation
  • Invest in properties or other financial ventures
  • Invest in your business
  • Cover daily expenses
  • Obtain funds in high-stress life situations such as illness or sudden death in your family
  • Life situations

If you default on your loans, loans secured against your home will have a priority in which they will be repaid. In the event of foreclosure, the loan that holds the first priority will be repaid in full before any other loans secured against your home. The remaining amounts after the first loan has been paid off will go towards the second mortgage, and so on.

Homeowners may opt for a second mortgage for a variety of reasons. Second mortgages can be used to consolidate debt, pay off other loans, fund a down payment on another property, or cover any other expenses that require a significant sum of money. However, second mortgage rates are typically higher than primary mortgage rates, as lenders assume more risk with second mortgages. It is a viable option for those with a low credit score or a spotty credit history, but it is important to note that you will need to approach a private lender, also known as a “C lender,” where you will pay higher interest rates.

To purchase a second property in Canada, such as an investment property, a second mortgage may be a helpful option. Keep in mind that a down payment of at least 20% is required for a secondary home. If you or any family members plan to reside in the secondary home rent-free, you may pay less than 20% down payment. Note that the Canadian Home Buyers Plan, which allows you to tap into your RRSPs, does not apply to a second property. Costs for buying a second property are similar to your first purchase, including valuation fees, legal fees, and registration fees and property transfer tax.
