Transparency - What You Need To Know About Your Mortgage Journey
Often during your mortgage journey, you will run into bank specialists and other mortgage agents or brokers that will tell you what you want to hear, so you give them the documents required to get your approval. While we understand you as a client want to hear you will get the lowest rate, please be aware that unless any mortgage broker or bank specialist has been given all the required documents and has fully underwritten your file, any rates offered are just quotes and not firm approval. Many times we find clients have been told what they want to hear because either the client has forced the mortgage broker or bank specialist to say to them the lowest rate, or they have just been told that to try and make the deal more effortless, but only to get to closing day to have the lender pull out of the deal!
Imagine you are at the lawyers to find out your deal was not approved because of something they found in your file; this happens often. This is why we ask for all the required documents upfront at Citadel Mortgages to ensure things like this do not happen at closing. We understand not all clients want to follow our award-winning process, which is OK with us; it just means we can not work together.
Have you ever wondered why you have to provide more documents to a mortgage broker in Canada than to your own bank? It’s a common question asked by clients who are beginning their mortgage journey, and we have an answer for you.
Mortgage brokers are intermediaries who work with multiple lenders to find you the best deal for your mortgage. Unlike your bank, which has access to your financial information, mortgage brokers don’t have access to your financial history or any other information that might help them determine your creditworthiness.
Therefore, to obtain a mortgage from a lender, brokers need to gather as much information as possible about your financial situation. This includes details about your income, employment history, credit history, savings, assets, and debts. Gathering this information helps brokers to understand your financial capacity and identify the best lenders and products for you.
Moreover, lenders also require a thorough verification process to ensure the accuracy of the information provided by clients. In addition, they are required to follow strict regulatory guidelines to prevent money laundering and fraudulent activities. Therefore, brokers must obtain all required documents to present a complete and accurate application to the lenders.
In contrast, your bank has access to your financial information, and therefore, you don’t have to provide as much documentation. However, you might not always get the best deal from your bank since they are only offering their own products. Working with a mortgage broker gives you access to multiple lenders and products, increasing your chances of finding the best deal for your unique situation.
At Citadel Mortgages, we understand that providing so many documents can be overwhelming. However, we work hard to make the process as seamless as possible for you. Our award-winning process ensures that we collect all the required documents upfront, reducing the risk of any delays or issues during the mortgage process.
