Westboro MIC uses its large network of licensed brokers/agents to continually fund mortgages within its lending area. Our qualified Underwriters screen applications and only approve mortgages that meet the funds’ criteria as approved by management. Generally speaking, these applications range from individuals or corporations with an immediate need for mortgage financing, however, for many different reasons, they do not qualify with the bank at this time. Examples are as follows:
- A business has the opportunity to purchase a property, however, the bank was unable to process their required loan quickly enough;
- Credit cards are fully extended: credit has been damaged due to sickness, marital break up or being out of work. Client is now back to work, healthy/happy and has the income stream to service the mortgage;
- Payments on credit cards have been delinquent due to various reasons. In all of the aforementioned situations, Westboro MIC works with clients and brokers/agents to guide and help them return to the traditional lending market.
Although real estate investing is considered one of the safest investments, risks still exist in mortgage lending. All property investments are subject to elements of risk. Property value is affected by general economic conditions, local real estate markets, the attractiveness of the property to tenants, competition from other available properties and other factors. While independent appraisals are required before the corporation may make any mortgage investment, the appraised values provided therein, even where reported on an “as is” basis, are not necessarily always reflective of the market value of the underlying property, which may fluctuate.
The MIC’s income and funds available for distribution to security holders would be adversely affected if a significant number of borrowers were unable to pay their obligations. Upon default by a borrower, Westboro MIC may experience delays in enforcing its rights as a lender and could incur costs in protecting its investment.
To mitigate these risks, the experienced team of Underwriters at Westboro MIC carefully review every application to reduce the possibility of non-performing loans. Furthermore, strict loan to value guidelines ensure enough equity is available to recover outstanding loan balances in case of foreclosure.
Investors are able to redeem all or a portion of their shares upon 30 days notice subject to the rules set out in the Subscription Agreement / Corporate Articles. Redemptions are processed once a month at month end.
