Guide: Purchase Mortgage Alberta, BC, Ontario & Manitoba

Moving from the rent cycle into home ownership can follow a number of different paths. Most Canadian homeowners go through the conventional home loan process, working with a bank or other traditional lender. However, there are many others who have the money to pay for a mortgage but have had some credit issues in their past, and so traditional lenders will not work with them. They don’t have the larger down payment on hand that many private lenders require, so they move toward a rent-to-own situation. Some people who go through rent-to-own were already making mortgage payments on their home but had a financial emergency that had them heading toward foreclosure until they found a refinance investor to help them stay in their homes are a rent-to-own tenant/borrower.
