Canada’s stricter mortgage rules may force you as a homeowner, to borrow from so-called private or alternative lenders. Private mortgages not only fill the void of institutional lenders, but they also offer clients a lot of flexibility in mortgage lending.
Private lenders are not subject to the stricter rules that are governing banks and credit unions. While Credit unions, which are provincially regulated, aren’t bound by Ottawa’s federal mortgage rules, many of them appear to be voluntarily complying by the new guidelines.
This means that private lenders are often the only option for borrowers who don’t qualify for a loan under the stricter regulations.
