In most cases, the answer is yes. However, the funding must be from a family member. There are certain circumstances in which you cannot use gifted funds. For example, your mortgage product may have a limit on the percentage of the down payment that can be gifted. Rampone-Marsh Mortgages can find out if your gifted funds can be applied to your down payment.
What to Bring
Applying for a mortgage shouldn’t be hard or confusing,
What is equity?
The amount of financial interest in a property. Equity is the difference between the fair market value of the property and the amount still owed on the mortgage.|
Can I transfer my mortgage if I buy another home?
Depending on your mortgage lender, yes. Most lenders are now offering options that allow you to take (or “port”) your mortgage with you. Typically you will not be assessed additional fees if the possession period between your old and new home is 60 days or less.
Are you Accredited?
Accredited members of Mortgage Professionals Canada & Mortgage Brokers Association of BC.
I’ve heard that the more times I get my credit checked, the lower my credit score will be. Is this true?
Yes, the amount of inquiries to your credit bureau report can affect your credit score. One of the advantages of using The Mortgage Centre – BC Direct Mortgages is that we check your credit bureau report only once, and we are able to take your application to more than one lender without doing multiple credit checks.
Why should I choose a Mortgage Broker at Rampone-Marsh Mortgages instead of a bank?
Most banks focus on such a wide variety of projects and cross-selling opportunities that their staff training is diluted and not focused. At Rampone-Marsh Mortgages, we provide excellent mortgage services for purchases, refinances, renewals and the list goes on. We know mortgages inside and out, and best of all we do all of the legwork! In most cases, our services are free and we have access to over 50 lenders.
What is a credit report?
A report detailing an individual’s credit history that is prepared by a credit bureau and used by a lender to determine a loan applicant’s creditworthiness.
Should I consider a mortgage to help with debt?
Yes. In fact, this is a common use of a mortgage loan. Many of our customers obtain a mortgage to consolidate credit card debt, renovate their kitchen, or invest.
Why is an appraisal necessary?
Every conventional mortgage that includes a minimum 20% down payment requires an appraisal because the mortgage is uninsured. The lender wants to see that your purchase price is in line with the property’s fair market value. Lenders want to see that you are purchasing a quality property and that they will be able to recuperate the full amount if you default on the loan.
