OPTIONS FOR EDMONTON’S SELF-EMPLOYED
15% of all Canadians are self-employed. Every year self-employed individuals approach me for mortgage financing. Mortgage financing is definitely a little bit different than if you have a salary or an hourly income.
There are many self-employed people in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Leduc, Beaumont, Devon, or St. Albert
Answering All Your Questions About Self-Employed Mortgages
I'd love to talk to you about how I can put a self-employed mortgage together for you or at least explore the options to see if this is a fit.
Asking Questions About Your Business
Getting a Self-Employed Mortgage
One of the first things I’ll ask is more about your business. Are you a sole proprietor or are you incorporated? Do you take dividends or do you pay yourself a T4? There'll be many, many different questions that I ask to find the exact lender to fit your situation. And there are many different options!
Other Things to Know About Self-Employed Mortgages
Some lenders will allow you to state your income so instead of proving it through tax returns, we can actually state a reasonable amount without having tax documents to support it. That requires a 10% down payment, but it is available.
One of the key parts of doing a self-employed mortgage is there must be no tax arrears on the notice of assessment. So your income taxes must be paid in full, showing on the notice of assessment.
