Mortgage Brokers

What should I expect when qualifying for a mortgage for an assignment purchase?

  • First of all, not all lenders are on board with assignment purchases.  But the ones that ARE have all the same features and conditions you would expect for standard mortgage qualification.  You will receive the same interest rate as though you were qualifying for a regular real estate transaction.  Also, the income qualification and credit score requirements all remain the same.
  • the main difference entirely has to do with the property and the actual assignment contract:
  • there will likely be additional documentation that will be required pertaining to the purchase contract and the newly drafted assignment contract (i.e. amendments, addendums, builder disclosures that include their terms & conditions pertaining to the assignment, and so on)
  • Some lenders will finance only on the original purchase price (which may be a deal-breaker for many), but most will finance on the newly negotiated assignment price.

  • And finally, depending on your loan to value ratio, appraisals will be required on a case by case scenario…and that’s it!

Mortgage broker vs bank: which is the better option?

Mortgage BrokersBanks
Assessing your payslips and documentsCredit officers will look at your home loan application and work out a favourable outcome.Credit officers might misinterpret payslips as they don’t understand how to assess your income.
SpecializationMortgage brokers know the home loan process and lending policies of the lenders they work with. They are experts in home loans.Since they offer an array of services, they lack mortgage expertise. They only have knowledge about their own lending policy.
Home loan optionsMortgage brokers will have a variety of home loan options and interest rates. They are more concerned with matching you with a home loan that fits your situation.Home loan options are limited as they can only offer their own products. If you don’t fit their lending criteria, then you’d be declined for a home loan.
ConvenienceWith the advent of online mortgage brokers, you can apply and submit documents online without ever visiting the office.While banks do have online application options, most of them will still require you to physically visit the branch to submit documents.
Interest ratesThey will review your home loan at regular intervals to ensure you’re still getting competitive rates on your mortgage.Banks are not obliged to ensure that your interest rates are competitive.
Point of contactThey are your point of contact during the entire process of buying a home and will work towards your best interest.They are working towards the interest of the bank.
