December 27, 2012
Looking to get Pre-Qualified for a Mortgage?
Under Canada’s new mortgage rules it is important that consumers have an accurate picture of “how much house” you can afford as today’s lenders leave a lot less room for discretion or error.
Salaried Employee – Letter from employer confirming all details of employment, T4 and recent pay stubs
Commission sales – personal tax returns, NOAs from Revenue Canada
Self-employed – personal tax returns, NOAs from Revenue Canada, business financial statements and tax returns
Banking & Financial Information
Know your banking information i.e., name, address, account types and account numbers
Know your assets (what you own) and their value i.e., cash amounts, stocks, bonds, RRSPs, car
Know your liabilities (what you owe) i.e., car loan, credit card balance, child/spousal support payments, all existing mortgages
Disclose ALL your past credit and tax problems up front – the bottom line is that your lender will find out if you’re hiding something – so it is best to disclose everything early so it doesn’t look like you are trying to hide something
These tips will help you get pre-qualified for your mortgage which will go a long way in helping your realtor find the right home for you.
