A power of sale can be initiated after a mortgage has been in default for more than 15 days. The lender should mail a letter to the property owner who has about 35 days to resolve the ‘Notice of Sale Under Mortgage’ by paying listed fees. If this does not happen, a statement of claim’ is issued outlining all costs accompanying mortgage settlement. These include land taxes due, lawyer fees, mortgage fees and other rates that are unique to Oshawa. If a statement of claim’ remains unpaid, the loan lender can issue a writ of possessions and request an eviction. With a power of sale, the lender does not take title to the home but can sell it to recoup. The homeowner will receive leftover proceeds from the power of sale but it is usually very little after legal and other fees. A foreclosure means the lender can take the title and own your home. You will also lose any remaining equity in the property.
