Most people have a mortgage on their home. Some people even have a second mortgage. You can have a second mortgage at the same bank as your first or you can have it at a different bank. Most people that have second mortgages have them at a different bank. People get second mortgages for different reasons. They may have excess debt they want to pay off or they may need the money to catch up on their first mortgage.
Perhaps they are using the money for remodeling or to take a long-awaited vacation. Whatever the reason, many people choose to take out a second mortgage on their home. Unfortunately, if you can’t make the payments on your second mortgage, you can have a 2nd mortgage foreclosure the same way you can on your first mortgage.
