Private Mortgage Lender Toronto

Who Stands To Change The Industry


TALK TO A MORTGAGE SPECIALIST

Private Mortgages

Private mortgages are short term secured loans. They typically run for terms of between one and three years. The borrower is not required to pay back the principle amount. The monthly repayments cover only the interest with the principle recovered at the end of the term. Private lenders have taken advantage of a gap in the market. They realized that the stringent lending criteria employed by conventional banks had left many with no recourse to the banks. Many of these would-be lenders could nonetheless afford to repay such loans. Private lenders look at more than just the credit history of the borrower. They are equally concerned with the market value of the property that will secure the loan. Private lenders often specialize in certain sectors of the market. Because of this your broker can connect you with a private lender who best suits your needs.

When Are Private Mortgage Lenders Best?

There are many circumstances where conventional lenders will not approve you for a mortgage. This is when a private mortgage lender could save the day. You would need a private mortgage lender in the following situations.

  • Your credit history is not good so conventional lenders will not fund you. With a credit score of less than 600 you are not likely to qualify for a conventional loan.
  • The banks won’t fund the property that you want to buy because it is not a conventional property.
  • You don’t have time to wait through the long approval process of the prime lenders.
  • You are self-employed or unable to prove your current income, so the prime lenders won’t approve the loan you want.
  • You need a loan for a short period of time.

What Interest Rates Will I Pay On Private Mortgage?

Private mortgages carry more risk for the lender.

They, therefore, attract higher interest rates. Currently interest rates on private mortgages range from 10% to 18% depending on the financial circumstance of the borrower and the characteristics of the property.

Rates may change in response to changes in economic conditions.

Interest rates also depend on which type of lender you use and the rate of return that the investors require.

Because you’ll pay higher interest rates for a private mortgage, you would only go this route if you cannot get loan approval from a conventional bank or bad credit lender.

What Fees Will I Pay For Private Mortgage Loan?

When you borrow from a conventional lender you don’t worry about the fees as the lender pays the commission. With a private lender, however, the borrower pays the fees. There is also a setup fee for the private loan. Overall the fees come to approximately 1% to 3% of the borrowed amount. Fortunately, you can include the fees in the mortgage.

How Long Does It Take To Get Approval?

It takes significantly less time to get approval of a private loan than a conventional loan. Approval will take between two and seven days. You’ll receive the funds in a matter of two to three weeks. The private lender is in the business of short-term loans. They will prepare you to change to conventional lender so that you can repay the capital on the private mortgage at the end of the term.

What Factors Do Private Lenders Look At?

  • Income – If you are unable to confirm your income, private lenders will use an estimate of your income based on an industry average.
  • Property value – the lender will insist on an appraisal as the property secures the loan. In the event of you defaulting it is used to repay the capital.
  • Down payment – you will need a down payment of at least 15% as the loan to value ratio of the property must be at least 85%.
  • Equity for refinancing – you are allowed a maximum loan to value of 85% if you are refinancing.

Private Lenders In Toronto Are Easier To Access Than Traditional Banks

Recent legislation and rising interest rates are making it increasingly difficult for Toronto residents to obtain mortgages through traditional sources. This is why more and more would-be homeowners are turning to private mortgages to purchase their dream property.

Because private mortgage lenders are funded by investors or groups of investors, they are not bound by stringent federal legislation in the same way as regular banks are. When you obtain a private mortgage from a Toronto mortgage lender the property that you buy serves as the collateral on the loan.

Meaning that if you default, the property will be sold to recover the loan. This is why private mortgage funders are more interested in the property than in your financial position.

Private mortgages are not insured, and so the property is the lender’s only recourse should you default on your payments.

If you have failed to make the stringent application process on a regular mortgage, you could finance your property through a private mortgage. This sector is free of the rigid criteria that are in place at regulated financial institutions.

What Is A Private Mortgage?

A private mortgage is a one to three-year, interest-only loan that private lenders will extend to you based on the equity in your home.

The amount that you can borrow will depend on the amount of equity in your home and your personal set of circumstances.

The interest rates on private mortgages are higher, but this reflects the greater risk to the lender.

In calculating the interest rate that you will pay, the private lender will look at the risk factors.

These include:

  • The Loan to Value – the lower the percentage, the lower the risk
  • Your income
  • Your credit scores
Private lenders are, of course, interested in your ability to repay the loan.

They are less interested than the banks are, in your slightly tarnished credit record. You can get mortgages in the Toronto area for up to 95% of the equity in your home.

Alternative And Private Lenders

Of late many alternative lenders have been given a bit of a tough time by the media. Writers have tended to paint mainstream bank mortgage providers as the be-all and end-all and everybody else as the villain of the day. They use phrases such as alternative lending, sub-prime lending and shadow lending. They accuse private lenders of using the more stringent mortgage requirements of the main stream banks, to push up interest rates and drive people further into debt. This is not the case. A mortgage seeker with a good credit rating very often get interest rates from private lenders like those offered by mainstream banks.

There are three types of lender in the residential mortgage market. These are;

  • A Lenders
  • Private lenders
  • Alternative lenders or B Lenders
Private Lenders Toronto

Private lenders consist of organizations and even wealthy individuals who are willing and able to lend money to those who are battling to borrow money.

They serve a valuable function in the industry, since they service people when no one else will help them. On the downside their rates and fees are higher, and they don’t offer insured high ratio mortgages.

Private lenders are less interested in the borrower than they are in the property that will serve as collateral. They want to know that if the borrower defaults the property will cover the loan.

Canada has many large organizations that are in the business of offering private loans. You can, however, take a private loan from just about anybody you know who has the funds and is happy to risk them.

Before you start any loan, discussions make sure that you have consulted a licensed mortgage broker and hired a real estate lawyer to assist with the deal.

A Lenders

Anyone who can pass all the rigid rules that the A lenders apply would happily borrow from them. They benefit from lower interest rates and zero additional costs unless they require a high ratio mortgage.

There are three types of A lenders


  • Chartered Banks – apply the stress test. Self employed people may have a problem getting a mortgage and their early payment penalties are very high.

  • Credit unions – don’t use the stress test for mortgages that aren’t insured.

  • Monoline mortgage lenders – only deal in mortgages. All dealings are online or via telephone. Their biggest advantage is that their prepayment penalties are the most reasonable.

I had to port a mortgage to a new condo, Leon had excellent knowledge to get me through the approval process. When the bank made an error, Leon was quick to contact them to make sure everything was done right and on time. He is very professional and courteous and I recommend his service to anyone who wishes to apply for a mortgage.

Giving them 5/5 stars. Massoud helped me with my mortgage and he never missed a beat. He made the process very straightforward as a first time home buyer. Shopped around for other mortgages but he was always the first to get things for me. Highly recommend him

I was looking to renew my mortgage and my previous lender was less than willing to do anything to keep my business. So I started to look for another brokerage to do business with and Certified Mortgage Broker stood out purely based on my interactions with Massoud. Massoud was professional and clearly had a keen sense of customer service; which I make a high priority when doing business with anyone since I'm in the customer service business myself. Peter rolled out the red carpet for me, walked me through my options, inquired about my plans with my current property, give me opinions and facts about rentals in the area, sales/purchases. In some respects he gave me more information about real estate than my real estate agent has!

Selling and buying a home is a stressful experience and Leon with CMB in North York took all of the stress out of arranging the financing. He was very professional and clear about what I needed to provide to him. He used this information to arrange the best mortgage option on our new home, arranged the bridge loan to cover the closing period differential, and arranged closing out the mortgage with the previous lender.. Our experience with Leon is far better than the local in-person brokers that we contacted previously and Leon has helped us with a mortgage renewal in the past with the same excellent experience.
