In most cases the term that is broken is the monthly payment. You could also be in default if you do not pay your property taxes or house insurance.

A repossession happens when your house is taken by your lender and the title to the property is changed from your name to the lenders name. This means that the former owner will no longer have any right to the property and any equity in the property.
How can I tell between a foreclosure and power of sale in Ontario?
Our best advice is to ask a lawyer, if you do not have access to lawyer carefully read any notices that you have received. Look for terms such as “Power of Sale” or “Statement of Claim” these terms usually relate to a power of sale. Foreclosures usually request that the home owner appear in court to defend against the action. Power of sales do not request a court appearance.
