Bad Credit Lenders

There are many bad credit (sub-prime) lenders in the GTA and across Ontario. These lenders are primarily interested in the value and marketability of the property. If the home owner defaults on the mortgage the property should be able to be sold and pay off all mortgage debts.


If the home owner has filed for bankruptcy or has a consumer proposal lender will be much stricter with their lending terms. A big red flag happens when the homeowner goes into high levels of debt right after the bankruptcy or consumer proposal.

High Loan to Value Ratios

Lenders generally do not like high loan to value ratios. If a house in Toronto is worth $600,000.00 and the mortgages total $540,000.00, there is still $60,000.00 in equity. The remaining equity may seem like a lot of money but if the property goes into default and a power of sale is started, all the equity will be consumed by real estate and legal fees.

Missed Mortgage Payments

Many lenders have automatic electronic payment every month. This saves the lender time and money. When the mortgage payment is NSF, the lender must manually process the payment. When a lender gets too many NSF cheques they will terminate the mortgage as soon as possible.

Improving Your Credit Score

There are a number of ways to improve your credit rating. The first step is to get a copy of your credit report from Equifax or Transunion. Look over the credit report to ensure it is correct, if there are any errors report it to Equifax and Transunion right away. Keep calling or emailing them until the error is corrected.

Next get a secured credit card from one of the banks. These cards require a deposit so that the card holder can never be in default. Never exceed 60% of the credit card limit and always make more than the minimum monthly payment. It takes time to improve your credit score, usually 6 months or longer.
