live in Montréal and get a foreclosure notice of default?

If you’ve received a non-payment notice and want to know what it means, read on.

Sell your home quickly to a home buyer, cash or with an agentIn simple terms, a notice of default is a document drawn up by a lender when it wishes to initiate a finance repossession process.

The non-payment notice will then be sent to everyone with an interest in the property (all beneficiaries, creditors, and even contractors who have not yet been paid for the work they have done on the property will receive a copy).

The notice of non-payment must also be published in a newspaper and delivered by hand to the property itself.

Although this process can be embarrassing for the individual threatened with financial repossession, these steps serve to protect the consumer.

In the past, lenders were not required by law to send a notice of default, and some homeowners were quite surprised when their house went into foreclosure.

In fact, it happened not so long ago. And yes, sometimes a bank accidentally forecloses on the wrong property, kicking people out of their homes without warning. This has already happened near Carignan.

Receipt of a notice of non-payment is an important step in the financial recovery process, as it gives those with an interest in the property the chance to assert their rights before it’s too late.

If you’ve received a notice of non-payment, don’t waste any time. Don’t wait; act now.

Here are a few things you can do:

1) Stay calm. Don’t panic.

It may seem obvious, but it’s certainly the best advice we can give you. Anyone facing the prospect of a financial recovery is bound to experience a great deal of stress. Situations like these can’t be turned around in a few hours; they take time to resolve. However, we know that you will get through these difficult times if you use good care techniques and take good care of yourself and your family members. Panic even usually leads to very bad decisions, so keep calm.
