Once couples agree that separation or divorce is the right option, splitting up assets are next up for discussion. The matrimonial home is usually one of the largest assets’ families share. Divorce and separation also affect common-law couples. The Canadian Government* has provided guidance to couples going through separation and divorce. There are different ways to approach selling or keeping your home.


Options for Divorce and Separation Mortgages

  • Sell the house – When both parties are in agreement to sell the house, the proceeds of the sale can be used to pay off any existing mortgage balances, plus housing-related costs such as legal and real estate fees. Paying off the existing mortgage early may result in additional fees and penalties. The money made from the sale of the property, after paying for associated costs, can be used as a down payment towards a new home.
  • Spousal buyout – If the couple agrees that one party will keep the house, then they have to pay the agreed amount to the other spouse. Essentially one spouse is buying the house from the other.
  • Spousal buyout + Refinance – The spouse that is retaining the mortgage and who may require access to additional funds, can consider a divorce mortgage including a refinance portion. Since separation and divorce may result in unexpected costs, the homeowner can include those costs with the divorce mortgage.
  • Spouse keeps the home and mortgage – Once both parties agree that one person will keep the house and the existing mortgage, an assumption will need to be processed. This means the person keeping the house and mortgage will assume these in their name only, removing the other spouse of any ownership or accountability.

Divorce and Separation can affect your credit score – The process of separating and divorce can also affect your credit score, sometimes negatively. Since couples are moving from shared resourcing to individual, there may be unexpected pressure on finances. Square Capital offers divorce mortgage with refinancing options for bad credit situations.

Other mortgage options

Homeowners have choices and can consider options to leverage their home equity. Depending on the product, these options may have slightly higher interest rates.

Private Mortgage

When homeowners cannot qualify for a mortgage to refinance through a bank mortgage debt consolidation or a home equity line of credit (HELOC), private mortgages may be an alternative. Since private mortgage lenders will secure a mortgage debt consolidation against a home, the interest is usually lower than high-interest debts like credit cards.

Private lenders usually charge a higher interest rate and fees than a bank, given the higher level of risk, however, this option still reduces interest costs over time. This is because these lenders understand that situations exist such as quick turnaround for financing, bad credit, stated income, and non-conventional properties.

Typically, private mortgages are shorter-term products and only require the interest portion to be repaid. Private lenders evaluate risk differently than traditional lenders and will consider the borrower’s ability to repay which is beneficial to self-employed and people with bad credit. Private lenders can also provide debt consolidation options through second mortgages.

Reverse Mortgage

An option available to homeowners 55 and older is reverse mortgages that provide access to the home’s equity without having to sell. Reverse mortgages allow homeowners to borrow up to 55% of the value of the home. The concept of this mortgage is essentially a reverse loan that means there are no payments required. Payments will be made either in monthly payments or in a lump sum payment to homeowners. Homeowners will pay the reverse mortgage loan when they move, sell or the last borrower dies. Typically, the interest rate is higher, and there are fees additional associated with reverse mortgages.
