Case Study – New to Canada with no income and no credit history


Did you know if you are new to Canada (have been in Canada for less than 5 years) you can buy a property and get a mortgage with no credit history or income?

There are currently 2 programs that exists:

  1. This is an equity program that requires the client to have 35% down-payment. In this case there is no need for verification of credit or income. Some lenders may ask to see additional funds in account for mortgage and property tax payments (usually between 6 months to 24 months of payments in addition to the down-payment)
  2. This is an insured program. Under this program the client can buy a property with as little as 5% down. In this case the credit history is verified by 12 months of utility bill and rent payments. The other stipulation is that the income must be from full time employment in Canada and debt service the mortgage loan.

Here is one of recent mortgages we have arranged for our clients.
