Getting Approved

We Can Help You!

We will work with you and your lawyer to decide the best financial step. There are many different ways to handle your shared assets. We aim to present you with all the options and ensure you are comfortable with your final decision.

In some cases, you may not be interested in getting a separation agreement. You may consider the separation straightforward. We can work with mortgage lenders that will allow a statutory declaration instead of a complete separation agreement. You can easily do this, especially if there’s no child support or spousal support.

In other cases, you may find yourself in a transitional type of mortgage. This is because your borrowing profile is different now than it was with your ex. We almost always recommend continuing with real estate ownership in a separation. It isn’t easy to financially move from owning to renting and then back to owning again.

Regardless of your situation, the divorce process is a tiring time. This program is there to give you some peace of mind. We will provide you a path to move forward with your real estate during the divorce process.

Mortgage After Divorce

Real Stories

headshot photo of Graham

Graham was in the process of going through a separation and wanted to keep the family home. There was a lot of equity in the home, the spousal buyout was significant at $250,000. Graham also had an existing mortgage on the house and a vehicle loan. The only advice his bank had was to sell the home and start over, despite him being able to manage a higher mortgage.

That’s where The Mortgage Centre’s Skip the Bank helped! The separation became simple as each party agreed to divide the equity without even needing an agreement. The Mortgage Centre worked with Graham to plan a monthly budget. He then felt financially comfortable buying his ex-spouse out of the agreement and carrying the new house on his own!
