No, the second mortgage would be called a home equity loan and usually interset rates are higher. If a second loan (mortgage) is needed, it may be better to add it to the first and refinance, assuming you have equity in the home to do so

Can you apply for 2 mortgages based on one property?

Yes you may, as long as it does not exceed the value of the property. You can not obviously finance 200% of the value of your property with 2 separate loans but you can apply for a first lien mortage and a second lien mortgage, it's done very frequently with purchases to avoid PMI by splitting a 100% LTV loan into an 80% 1st loan and a 20% second mortgage.

Can ex-wife refinance with a different mortgage company if the house has 2 mortgages on it the first mortgage is in his name only and the 2nd mortgage is in both names but both names are on the deed?

Yes, If the house was given to you in the divorcee. You will also need to have a quick claim deed done and he will need to sign it. Both mortgages will have to be included in the refi, because they are both tied to the property.

What could happen if you have 2 mortgages on the same property and you only default on the smaller of the 2 mortgages?

A mortgage is a promise that you make to the lending company. You promise them that if you don't pay back the loan, then they can have your house. It's no different for the second mortgage except that if you fail to pay either bank, and they both want your house, then the first mortgage holder always wins. If you default on your second mortgage..then they have the right to foreclose and sell your property BUT they have to pay the balance on your first off. If you defalut on your first mortgage then they will give notice to your second mortgage company and give them the option to "accelerate " the mortgage and they can foreclose..but if the second does not then the first mortgage can foreclose and sell your property and only pay the second off if there is enough money from the sale. It really doesn't matter if the mortgage balance is the "smaller" it is who is recorded in first & second lien position.
