Securing a Court-Ordered Sale

When a borrower fails to bring a mortgage current, it may be necessary to foreclose and issue a Notice of Sale according to Ontario’s Mortgage Act. Once the mortgage has been in default for more than 15 days, this course of action empowers the lender to sell the property. Defaults are somewhat rare in Ontario, and the process for securing a Notice of Sale requires experienced legal acumen.

It’s also important to recognize that the courts do not take mortgage enforcement proceedings lightly. Borrowers who believe a mortgage contract is invalid in some fashion have the right to file for injunctive relief and block sales. Such protracted litigation can prove costly.
