Caveat Loans Explained: What is a Caveat Loan?

How are Caveat Loans Secured?

  1. A ‘caveat’ is a document that is lodged onto a property title. The title is a government ownership record, and placing a caveat on this title secures the real estate so that the lender of interest is registered; just like a mortgage.
  2. The property is then used as securities for the loan. The lender receives an equitable interest in the property. They can proceed with the lending transaction with the assurance that they’ll be able to liquidate the property to make up for any losses in the event of a default from the borrower.
  3. The caveat serves as an official note on the property title that lets other lenders know that the property is being used as security for a loan. The property therefore can not be used for any other dealings.

What's the Difference Between a Caveat Loan and a Second Mortgage?

A first mortgage (home loan) is very straightforward. The borrower receives approval from a lender, based on their credit history and income. If approved, they receive a loan which can be used to purchase a property, which also serves as the loan’s security in the event of non-payment.

However, it’s common for property owners to also take out second mortgages on the same property. This is possible because every previous repayment they have made against the property pays down the principal, which increases borrower’s equity. Second mortgages are taken out against this existing equity.

The fundamental difference between second mortgages and caveat loans is that more than one mortgage issued against a single property. Mortgages are assigned a level of priority relative to when the mortgage was taken out. In the case of a default, a second mortgage can only be reckoned with after the first has been cleared.

With a caveat loan, the property in question may not be used as collateral for any other loan if the caveat loan is active. These restrictions make caveat loans easier to process and more desirable under certain circumstances. With no other loans competing for priority stake over a single property, the lender can release the full amount more quickly.
