Bad Credit Mortgage
Bad credit mortgages in Canada are a term that is used when someone who has poor credit, bad credit, horrible credit, or no credit applies for a mortgage loan.
Bad credit mortgages in Canada are mostly available through alternative lenders and through channels that are not as well known for mortgages. Since banks and many other larger institutional mortgage lenders will only approve the lending of mortgages to individuals who have good credit, great credit, or excellent credit. It is important to understand that even if your credit is not too bad, you could still get turned away by the banks when applying for a mortgage and other mortgage related loans.
If you do have bad credit and need a mortgage loan then there are ways around this issue so it is important to understand how these lenders work and what they can offer you when looking at getting approved for bad credit mortgages in Canada.

A brief overview of credit
If you’ve had a rocky financial history, or if you’re new to Canada, we can help. You may be wondering how that works, so here’s the scoop:
Credit is a measure of how well you’ve paid your debts and bills in the past. Canada’s biggest credit bureaus are Equifax and TransUnion.
If your history suggests you don’t have a track record of paying back credit, you have to build it up over time, which lets you get a cheaper mortgage.
This is why it’s common to get a mortgage with a bad credit lender with a relatively high interest rate, before refinancing once you’ve proven that you pay your debts.
While you build up your credit over time and prove your ability to pay off loans responsibly, we’re here to help you get the lowest rates available.
There is also a story behind every bruised credit, and that’s something that often gets overlooked, but not with us. We understand what lenders are looking for and we also work with common sense lenders who care about the story more so than the actual score! So if you have bruised credit but have a story to tell make sure to Contact us so we can help you.
Let's improve your credit score
If you’d like to improve your credit before getting a mortgage, we’d recommend paying all your bills on time, staying within your credit limit, and only applying for credit infrequently – applying for too many credit cards can negatively affect your score.
