We will focus to improve your current situation and transition you into conventional financing. Contact us to discuss what we can do for you.

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 Lakhani Group 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 years, 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.
