Third Mortgage Rates & Approvals.

A third mortgage is secured against real estate and registered behind existing first and second mortgages. There are many reasons why a homeowner or real estate investor may require access to the equity in their real estate: consolidating multiple higher interest rate debts into one streamlined payment, property renovations, accessing funds for business operating capital or for other emergency expenses. Third mortgages typically come into play when it makes sense from a cost and practicality standpoint to leave an existing first and second mortgage in priority. However, it’s important to note that third mortgage financing is an incredibly niche product provided by very few mortgage lenders. DV Capital provides a fast and flexible third mortgage approval process and facilitates industry low third mortgage rates across Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia. 

How does a third mortgage work?

Third Mortgage Lender.

As previously mentioned, obtaining a third mortgage approval is far from a simple process given the fact that there are very few third mortgage brokers and third mortgage lenders. This is mainly a result of the risk that third mortgage lenders assume given their priority on title of the real estate security. Similar to private second mortgages, private third mortgages are typically short term loan facilities provided on a 12 month term basis with the potential of a renewal or extension at the lenders discretion. In most cases a third mortgage payment is interest-only which provides a lower mortgage payment compared to an amortized mortgage which consists of a principle component. A third mortgage borrower might benefit from a smaller interest-only third mortgage payment considering the marginal amount of principal pay down over a 1-year term if the mortgage was to be amortized. A third mortgage might be an option to consider when the existing first and second mortgages are held with institutional lenders, for example a mortgage registered in first position and a home equity line of credit registered in 2nd position. Also, depending on the size of a potential prepayment penalty, the cost might be too high to justify discharging the mortgage. Although a third mortgage is priced with a risk-adjusted premium, it may provide a cost friendlier blended interest rate and or a simpler way to access equity for real estate owners in Ontario & British Columbia.

How to Apply for a third Mortgage?

Third Mortgage Brokers in Canada.

At times, existing mortgage lenders are not willing to advance their clients additional funds. It’s nothing personal, institutional and private mortgage lenders must work within their prescribed underwriting policies. As previously mentioned, when a real estate owner has an institutional 1st mortgage along with a home equity line of credit registered in second position, said products are usually positioned at interest rates lower than third mortgage pricing. In addition, breaking the first and/or second mortgage might not only trigger sizeable prepayment penalties but be impractical, depending on the clients situation, if breaking institutional mortgages and/or lines of credit can only be replaced with a non-bank, higher-rate, shorter-term first mortgage. This opens the discussion on why completing a mortgage assessment with DV Capital is incredibly important, especially when considering a short-term mortgage product such as a private second mortgage or third mortgage. It might be more efficient and cost friendlier to obtain financing from a third mortgage lender. Given limited third mortgage capital in the private mortgage market and limitations surrounding property types, locations and loan to values, consider speaking with an experienced provider of third mortgages.

What is a Third Mortgage Broker?

We specialize in third mortgages.

If you are a real estate owner in Ontario, British Columbia or Nova Scotia, you first want to ensure that you are working with an individual that is licensed by their respective Provincial regulator and has their license parked with a mortgage company that is licensed in your jurisdiction. In Ontario, it is important to note that the mortgage agent or mortgage broker that you are speaking with is specifically able to deal and trade in private mortgages. A third mortgage broker is essentially a licensed mortgage professional that provides real estate owners access to a third mortgage lender for borrowing purposes.
