A B lender mortgage is any mortgage funded through a non-traditional bank or lending sources but is still governed by B-20 guidelines. B lenders include Trust Companies, tier B banks, monoline institutions and credit unions. B lenders will cater to borrowers who don’t fit within the guidelines of an A lender, such as those with low credit, non-qualifying income or other challenges that could cause them to be declined by an A lender.
Home Trust has a “Classic” mortgage product which is ideal for homeowners who might not fit the typical mortgage lending criteria. This type of mortgage would be ideal for those who are self-employed, are experiencing financial difficulties or have limited established credit history. For conventional uninsured (Classic) mortgages, they offer both fixed and variable rate mortgages. They also have the “Accelerator” mortgage product which is suitable for those with established credit who are looking to purchase or switch their mortgage. This type of mortgage might be right for you if you are a first-time home buyer, are purchasing a home, have an established credit history or are new to Canada. For high ratio insured (Accelerator) mortgages, Home Trust offers a fixed rate. Fixed or variable interest rates are determined by your credit rating and overall financials.
Rates tend to vary depending on a multitude of factors such as down payment and Loan to Value, term length, and intention for the property, rather than lender to lender. It’s important to shop around and compare mortgage rates from multiple lenders so you can find the best mortgage rate for you.
In order to get a mortgage from Home Trust, you will have to work with your mortgage broker. Your mortgage broker will help you negotiate with your chosen lender to help you get the best rate.
