New Immigrant Mortgage

Posted on: November 24, 2020

Moving to a new country is not an easy option, but Canada welcomes people from all around the world and provides opportunity to grow. In Canada, buying a home, depends on the residency rather than citizenship. Consequently, it is a golden opportunity for landed immigrants and non-landed immigrants to buy a house and stop renting out. Today, in this blog, we would like to discuss how permanent residents and non-permanent residents can secure a mortgage based on their residential status. Also, what steps need to be taken to secure a mortgage and what is the minimum amount of down payment ?

To begin with, landed immigrants are those who have legal right to stay in Canada permanently. Like citizens, they can secure a mortgage at 5% down payment if the purchase price of the house is $500,000 or less, and enjoy the low interest rates from the traditional lenders (Conditions apply, call MB Mortgages for details).To get approved from A lenders(Canadian major banks), borrowers must pass the stress test, they must have a stable source of income and a good credit history. Along with, if you make less than 20% down payment, you must purchase a Default Insurance and it is insured under CMHC, Genworth, and Canada Guaranty. This insurance is a security for lenders if any borrower default in making a payment. We at MB Mortgages can help to get a home loan for new immigrants based on your situation.

To continue with, what if you do not get approved from the Canada’s major banks (Traditional Lenders)? What if you have a challenging credit history or unstable source of income? Can you still secure a mortgage? The answer is yes, you can secure a mortgage. We at MB Mortgages have a bunch of options to help you to secure a mortgage based on your situation.
Moving forward, Non-landed immigrants (non-permanent residents) can secure a mortgage if they have stable source of income, a good credit history and minimum 10% down payment. Call MB Mortgage for further details and information.
