BLenders fill the gap between conventional mortgage lenders like banks. With the recent B-20 lending guideline changes made January 1st 2018 B-Lending may become more popular option for clients. B-Lenders tend to be more flexible on credit including Bankruptcies & consumer proposals as well as self-employed income or stated income clients.   This is why B Lenders in Canada have to rely more heavily on the equity in the property and charge premiums on rate to mitigate the risk. Apply Now

What Do B-Lenders Do

B Lenders take on clients with slight issues with providing proof of income or mild derogatoriness in credit. These types of lenders primary lend in urban areas so if you are in a smaller town you likely will fit in with one of your private mortgage lenders. Banks take on the clients that can provide income proof and credit worthiness that will bring a comfort level that they will see no payment interruptions during a term. So what do you do if you are self-employed or earn money in a way that you cannot always show in a conventional manor? You need equity! Generally you will require 25% equity in the home to qualify under a Canadian B Lenders but there are programs that will enable clients to borrow up to 80% of the home’s value.

So you have gone to the bank and they said no. Generally when looking for B Lenders in BC you must go through mortgage broker channels. So what happens if B Lenders turn you down as well? There are a few options to look at. Your mortgage broker can go back to a B Lender to see if they have a comfort level at a lower Loan to Value, say 50% & and top up the rest with a private mortgage. A private lender in BC is a useful tool to brokers, allowing home owners to leverage real-estate with the power of a home equity loan. Canadian Private Mortgages do have costs associated with them but are generally used as a short term solution to a mortgage problem. In most cases they are used to secure the financing now in hopes to improve the credit or income challenges of the client. In the future usually one to two years once the problem has been rectified we refinance the mortgage out at a bank at today’s best mortgage rates.
