We understand how difficult it is to get home mortgages as a self-employed individual, and we get the frustration that comes with it. After all, you may have a better income than employed people, and your small business may be thriving. But you still get those words when you try to apply for a loan and those two little words hold you down and make it very hard for you to improve your lifestyle and get what you want.

But, nevertheless, it is possible to get self-employed mortgages, and we are here to make sure of it. You will need to provide proof of income to secure a mortgage as a self-employed individual, including a two-year average of Line 150 on your tax return. You will need to have an excellent credit history, ideally without any payment delays and significant debts. There is also other paperwork involved regarding your business, and you will need to be able to provide a down payment of at least 10%.

Kelowna Mortgage Brokers FAQ Icon

Applying for a mortgage shouldn’t be hard or confusing,
let’s break this down and make it simple for you!

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 should I get a pre-approved mortgage?

There are several benefits to getting a Pre-Approval before you start searching for your next home.

  • Your mortgage rate will be secured for 120 days. Even if rates go up, yours won’t.
  • You’ll know what you can afford, helping to narrow down the search process.
  • Pre-approval will make you look like a more serious buyer, helping you find a good realtor and can give you negotiating power with the home seller.
  • A mortgage pre-approval will make the final closing faster since you already have most of the work completed.
Why is a mortgage insurance premium necessary?

If your down payment is less than 20% of the property value, mortgage insurance is mandatory in Canada.  An insurance premium is built into the mortgage.  So therefore, the clients do not pay “out of pocket” for this expense.  For lenders, a down payment of this size is more of a risk, so the insurance premium is a guarantee for the lender in the event of your defaulting on the loan.
