Mortgage Financing Through A Separation Or Divorce

Mortgage Financing Through A Separation Or Divorce with Key Momentum Mortgages INc.

If you are searching for mortgage financing through a separation or divorce, it’s important to know how to handle your mortgage if you decide to separate.

Please ensure consistent payment of your mortgage.

A mortgage represents a legally binding agreement between you and your lender, unaffected by marital circumstances. Should your name be associated with the mortgage, it remains your responsibility to guarantee the regular payments. Even in the event of a marital breakdown, it remains imperative to fulfill your mortgage obligations.

If, during the course of your marriage, you have relied on your partner to handle mortgage payments and you now harbor uncertainty about the payments post-separation, it is advisable to directly contact your lender to verify the status of your mortgage payments. Failing to make payments can potentially impact your credit score, or worse, trigger foreclosure proceedings.

Breaking your mortgage entails financial implications.

While contemplating mortgage financing through a separation or divorce, whether through mortgage refinancing, altering property ownership, or property sale, it's important to recognize that legal expenses will be incurred.

In instances where your mortgage term is not yet completed, the penalties for breaking the mortgage agreement can be substantial, particularly with fixed-rate mortgages. We strongly recommend reaching out to your mortgage lender to ascertain the exact cost associated with breaking your mortgage during your search for mortgage financing through separation or divorce. During this period of transition, this information will provide enhanced clarity as you draft your separation agreement.

Declaration of your marital status as separated or divorced.

While completing a mortgage application for new financing, indicating your marital status as separated or divorced will likely prompt the lender to request your legal separation agreement or divorce documentation. The purpose behind this inquiry is to confirm that you are not obligated to support payments. Should your paperwork remain outstanding, anticipate potential delays in securing your mortgage financing.

Potential challenges in qualifying for a new mortgage.

With the division of assets also comes the division of incomes. In cases where your existing mortgage approval was based on a dual income, maintaining the same quality of life post-separation could prove challenging.

In this context, prudent planning becomes essential. Collaborating closely with an independent mortgage professional will ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of your situation. Developing a strategy to manage the mortgage on your matrimonial home is advisable.

Acquiring the matrimonial home from your former spouse.

Mortgage Financing Through A Separation Or Divorce with Key Momentum Mortgages INc.Individuals undergoing separation and seeking to buy out the matrimonial home are accorded specific considerations. Unlike a typical refinance situation, where borrowing is limited to 80% of the property's value, lenders will entertain the prospect of one spouse buying out the other up to a loan-to-value ratio of 95%. This flexibility proves invaluable when dividing assets and liabilities.

Navigating the complexities of mortgage financing need not be a solitary endeavor. If you are navigating a separation and would like to explore your mortgage options, please don't hesitate to reach out. I am available at your convenience to guide you through this process.
