Ready to get started? These documents below include all the information that is required from most people to obtain a mortgage in Canada. More documents may be required for business for self individuals, individuals with poor credit, or non residents.
Budget Expense Sheet
I highly encourage all clients to start off calculating their budget. It’s key to calculate your affordability with your take home income and your current lifestyle. From there, find out what you can realistically put towards housing (mortgage, property taxes, etc). If that figure can not get you into your desired home, go back to your expenses and see what items you can sacrifice on (if any).
Mortgage Application & Consent
Must include/be completed by all applicants.
Documents required for each applicant.
Template Employment Letter
