Renewal and Switches
Mortgage renewals are one of the most neglected decisions made during the life of a mortgage. Many homeowners stay with their existing mortgage lender because they believe it is too time consuming to shop around for a better rate.

To help them realize their dreams of homeownership, all three mortgage insurance companies offer mortgage loan insurance options for self-employed borrowers without traditional third-party validation of income.
There are also many stated income conventional options (20% or more down payment) to assist with dreams of home ownership.
Alternate Lending & Business for Self-Stated Income
If you find that you don’t quite fit in the standard “A financing box” (anymore), that’s just fine! A lot of us have mortgage applications that aren’t conforming for a variety of reasons.
Alternative lending isn’t just for those people who have had credit setbacks (although they do a great job of servicing this group as well), it’s for people who do things differently. Don’t let the stigma of alternative lending keep you from considering what could be a great mortgage product for you!
If you are business for self and can’t prove income, there are great stated-income solutions for you. Purchase and refinancing solutions are available up to 80%.
A reverse mortgage allows Canadian home owners 55 or older to turn the equity in their home into tax free cash. There is no income or credit verification, and no repayments required on the mortgage. The interest rates are a little higher than with a standard mortgage, however the qualifications are considerably more relaxed. Not the best option for everyone, but it might be a great option for you.
