    A bad credit mortgage offers individuals with suboptimal credit scores a pathway to financing their home purchase. Lenders use credit scores, ranging in Canada from 300 to 900, to gauge the risk associated with offering you their services—the higher your score, the better your credit standing. Your credit score and history develop through consistent, reliable repayment of debts, including student and car loans and credit card bills.

    You may qualify for a poor credit mortgage even with a score lower than the preferred threshold. Such a score often reflects past financial struggles, like bankruptcy or loan repayment challenges. We are an experienced bad credit mortgage broker, specializing in assisting individuals with bad credit to secure mortgages, offering hope and solutions to those who might otherwise struggle to obtain home financing.

    Prime Lenders: Prime lenders maintain the most stringent criteria for bad credit mortgages, yet often provide the most favorable rates. These lenders include the traditional financial institutions that typically come to mind for a mortgage application, including major banks. Although they generally favor applicants with high credit scores, it’s possible to secure a bad credit mortgage through them with a credit score of at least 600.

    Trust Companies and Bad Credit Lenders: Specialized financial institutions, such as trust companies, focus on serving individuals with poor credit scores or histories by offering bad credit mortgages. Generally, these lenders cater to clients with credit scores of 700 or below, and they can potentially secure a mortgage for those with scores as low as 550. 

    Private Lenders: These lenders may be either individual entities or private mortgage companies ready to offer mortgages to individuals with poor credit scores or histories. Certain private lenders may restrict their loans to financing only the down payment on a mortgage. Although their interest rates are significantly higher than those of prime lenders or trust companies, private bad credit mortgage lenders are a viable alternative for individuals whose credit scores fall below 600.

By facilitating access to diverse lending sources, from prime lenders to private entities, we help our clients significantly enhance their chances of securing a mortgage. Understanding that each client’s situation is unique, we personalize our approach, ensuring that each individual is matched with a lending solution that best suits their financial circumstances and home ownership goals, including a second mortgage.

    If you’re considering applying for a mortgage with a poor credit score, there are several important factors to keep in mind. During the application process, lenders will scrutinize various aspects, but they will primarily concentrate on:

    Credit Score and Debt History: A credit score and your debt or credit history provide a quick snapshot of your risk profile for a lender. Your credit score will determine whether you are eligible for a regular mortgage or will have to finance your home purchase with a bad credit mortgage. Credit scores in Canada range from 300 to 900, with a higher score being better. If your score is lower than 700 or you have a history of missed payments, you may have to opt for a bad credit mortgage. 

    Income and Employment History: A lender’s primary concern is whether you will be able to repay the loan reliably over time. As such, they will look at your income and employment history when you apply for a mortgage. If your credit is below ideal and you have a low income or an employment history that is difficult to verify, then you may be required to apply for a bad credit mortgage. 

    Property: Any time you apply for a mortgage, the lender will want to look at the property. They will look at the state of the construction and required maintenance costs of the property, the area it is in, and if they consider it affordable for you. If you are applying for a bad credit mortgage, the bad credit mortgage lender may be stricter with the type of property they are willing to finance.

    Down Payment: In Canada, the minimum down payment on a property is 5%, with that amount rising to 10% of a property that is valued over $500,000.
