I would like to know more about taking a third mortgage, because I am planning to take a 3rd mortgage. There are 2 pending home loans, but now, since I am in need of more funds for my daughter’s educational expenses. A third mortgage is an additional loan taken out on a property that already has two mortgages against it. I do have a good credit score. I got some info here, http://www.privatelend.com/private-mortgages/third-mortgage/ . I want to know, do taking third mortgage cancel out the first and second mortgage ? and, what else do I need to know about third mortgages?

No, you will have all three loans.
If you use mortgages, the total amount is limited by the value of your house.
A couple other options -
1. Rather than a third loan, you could refi your second mortgage (just to kep things simple)
2. Rather than collateralizing more of you house, you could get a Student Loan.
