Foreclosure FAQ

1. I am in foreclosure or Power of Sale…What are my options?

  • Get your Bank to refinance your Mortgage and include any arrears in the Re-write. In today’s lending environment where lending rules are very restrictive…the chances your Bank will rewrite your mortgage are slim to none..
  • Apply for a Secondary financing to get you out of the Foreclosure or Power of Sale Process. The “high’ risk associated with this type of financing is you “must” be able to pay off this secondary financing in a year. If you have Credit Challenges your Credit Score will likely prevent you from securing a New Mortgage to be able to pay off this secondary financing and you will then be in a Power of Sale or Foreclosure Position with the Secondary lender and you are now experiencing financial “déjà vu”…meaning you are in the same position now as you were before you took the secondary financing…you will be facing Power of Sale or Foreclosure again soon.
  • Selling your home…NO…this is NOT your only option left.
  • Use the revolutionary concept known as Refinance Buy Back…stay in your house…pay off the existing Mortgage Lender and all Personal debts…fix your Credit rating and go into a Traditional Mortgage again in 2-3 years. This process allows you to stay in your home…preserve your home equity…fix your credit issues and get a prime rate mortgage at the end of the program.

The public consensus when facing Power of Sale or Foreclosure is to sell your home before the bank takes it.

Question: Why would you sell your home? Why would you give away the equity in your home? Do you want to sell your home because history has taught us when facing Power of Sale or Foreclosure you must do so?

Answer: Selling your home is not the best option if you want to stay in your home. HOS Financial has a revolutionary system that allows homeowners who are facing Power of Sale or Foreclosure to:

  • Stay in their home
  • Preserve the hard earned equity in the home
  • Fix any Credit Issues which may be present
  • Move into a Bank Mortgage in the future

2. Do I lose title to my home?
Yes…when you go through our Lease Buy Back program the title stays with the Investor who funded your application. However, you are never without legal right to the title of the property as the Purchase and Sale agreement to buy the property back is signed “before” the Lease Buy Back program is started.

3. What is the maximum Loan To Vaue?
As a general rule it is capped at 90% of the property value but on exceptions we can consider 95%

4. What is the Interest Rate?
There is no Interest rate used when calculating payments. Our Payments are based on lease factors which adjust according to down payment, location and overall risk of any application. Our payment includes a portion for Down Payment Top Up (20% of total payment – included in payment total when quoted), Property Taxes, Home Insurance.

5. What are the Fees?
Be prepared for the following expenses:
·       Appraisal Report
·       Inspection Report
·       ILA – Independent

6. What happens if I am not in a position to buy back the property when the lease Buy Back period ends?
If the issue is related to an unexpected life event during the lease but you have made your lease payments on time, we can extend the lease until you get by the life event and get back on track. If you have missed payments or have failed to follow the Credit Management, you are at risk to lose your Down Payment and accumulated Option Credits.

7. What if I have BAD Credit…can I still qualify?
Yes. We have a program which will restore your Credit rating so you can return to main stream financing at the end of the lease term.

8. Who is responsible for Maintenance and Utility Bills?
As you will be buying back the property you currently own, you will be responsible for maintenance and all Utility bills including the water bill.

9.  Can I buy the house back early?
Normally you are committed to the entire Lease term. Your Investor has incurred significant costs to enter the program with you and is looking to recover their investment. We have been successful negotiating with the Investor allowing clients to exit early. In our experiences long as the Lease Payments have been made on time and you can agree to the financial terms of the early exit provided by the Investor, an early exit is possible.

10.  How long does it take to finalize my application?
We recommend you allow 4 weeks from the time we identify the Investing Partner for your program. If you have been served with Notice for Power of Sale we “strongly” recommend you call us immediately as time is of the essence.
