What is a down payment?

Can I make my down payment with gifted money?
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.
Why use a Mortgage broker instead of my bank?
