Private Loans for Bad Credit

Many private lenders in Winnipeg, Manitoba require an inspection of the property as part of the terms of the mortgage. The inspection process is fairly simple; the private lender is looking for any obvious defects or damage to the property that may bring down its value. The property owner should clean the entire house to make it look presentable. Painting is a relatively fast and easy way to hide any marks on the walls and fresh paint make a house look clean. If the money being borrowed is to be used for repairs or renovations show the private lender exactly what work is to be completed and how it will improve the house.

Choosing a private lender for your mortgage can have many advantages. First, the private lender makes all the decisions regarding your credit rating and they are much more flexible than banks. Furthermore, a private lender gives you the satisfaction of personally knowing who is funding your mortgage.

Of all the different types of lenders, private mortgage lenders have the most lenient approval criteria. Private lenders will generally provide mortgages up to 75% of the value of the property. Most private lenders can only offer mortgages on typical residential homes worth at least $100,000. The ratio between the value of the requested mortgage and the value of the property is called a “Loan-to-Value” (LTV) ratio and is the main factor when it comes to approval on a private mortgage. These criteria are different from those of Banks, Trust Companies, and Credit Unions, which will also consider a borrower’s income ratios, employment, and credit score in addition to their LTV ratio. Private lenders are usually not concerned with the creditworthiness of the borrower.

Since private mortgages are considered to be a high-risk investment, these lenders demand higher rates and fees. A borrower can expect to pay rates between 7% to 12% and fees equal to 4% to 6% of the mortgage amount. The rates are dependent on the LTV ratio, while the fees are dependent on the complexity of the mortgage, which includes the cost of dealing with any legal issues. Approval can also depend on the location of the property, and in general, larger cities will have higher maximum LTV ratios. This rate estimation tool will take into account all of these factors and estimate what interest rate you can expect to pay for a mortgage.
