Second Mortgages Montreal

What is a second mortgage?

A second mortgage is a loan that is taken out on a property that has an existing mortgage. It provides access to the equity that you have available in the property, often at a lower rate than most other types of loans. For this reason, second mortgages are a popular way to borrow significant sums of money relatively quickly, if needed.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of obtaining a second mortgage?

First, the disadvantages:

  • From the lender’s perspective, second mortgages are risky because the first mortgage will be paid first if a property is taken into possession after a default.
  • For this reason, second mortgages have higher interest rates.

However, there are quite a few advantages:

  • If your first mortgage has a favorable interest rate, getting a second mortgage may be the right decision when funding home renovations, consolidating debt, or lowering monthly credit card payments.
  • Even though they typically have higher interest rates, second mortgages are usually cheaper than other types of personal loans.
