New Mortgage Rules Means Less Borrowing Power

Previously when a client asks us how much he/she can borrow, the answer has always been 4 to 6 times of your income, provided no other major debts.

As of January 01, 2018, all the federally regulated banks have to implement the Stress Test on ALL mortgages across the board. That means, your maximum borrowing power will be 4 to 5 times of your income, provided no other major debts.

Most of our lenders are regulated federally; therefore, they have to comply with the new Rules.

However, we do have access to Non-Federally Regulated lenders who might have less stringent qualifying rules. Please contact us for more details.
