What is a self-employed Mortgage?

Without traditional proof of income such as being self-employed, it can be more difficult to acquire approval for a mortgage. Due to the move by the CMHC to limit its insurance to those without income validation, it has been increasingly difficult for self-employed people to get a mortgage.

How we can help

At Canada West Mortgage, we are able to approve borrowers who may not have a traditional confirmation of income. We can arrange financing for borrowers whether they need money for taxes, debt consolidation, or home renovations by accessing the equity built up in your home, commercial property, or land.

How you can qualify

Property - The first factor we look at when approving you for home refinancing is if you own a residential property, land, or a commercial building.

Equity - Your home, business, or land are required to be worth more than the remaining mortgage amount on the property or land.

Income - We consider both individuals who are self-employed or traditionally employed.

Credit Score -  At Canada West Mortgage, we specialize in approving individuals of all credit profiles.
