Entrepreneurship should be rewarded, but when it comes to mortgages, it hasn’t always paid to be self-employed. Many banks today prefer salary, but if you are self-employed, you can still apply for mortgage.
In order to apply for a self employed mortgage, it is important to provide proper income verification and relevant business documentation. You will be required to provide copies of your Notice of Assessment or business financial statements for the two year period preceding the date of purchase and latest notice of assessment from Canada Revenue Agency. If you don’t provide sufficient documentation it could put the borrower into the “non-conforming” category that requires a much larger down payment and could potentially result in a higher mortgage rate. More than ever, advice and guidance from a qualified mortgage professional is vital.
