We all dream of having our own home, but sometimes the financial situation does not allow us to fulfill this dream. At other times, there are certain unforeseen situations or the desire for change that push us to make decisions that inevitably have a financial component. Then, comes the idea of a mortgage loan.

But what exactly is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a relationship between the owner of a property and another party (usually a bank) acting as a creditor, that is, a lender. The debtor receives a certain amount of money and undertakes to reimburse it, guaranteeing the fulfillment of his obligation with his property. The property will therefore become hypothecated.

Any immovable hypothec is created in a notary deed in a minute. The notary draws up this document which includes the description of the hypothecated property, the rights and obligations of the parties involved and the amount of the mortgage.

In case the debtor does not comply with various conditions established regarding the property (for example, maintaining your insured property and so on) or doesn’t repay the regular payment and the balance at the end of his contract, the creditor may exercise all the hypothecary remedies provided for in the Civil Code of Quebec.
