Understanding what many lenders look for when they are considering your application for a mortgage is essential. This includes the nature of your business because it gives banks and other lenders an insight into where your monthly revenue is coming from.
For example, a construction company owner can operate in many different construction industry sectors. Mortgage lenders need to know whether the business caters to commercial or residential clients as well as the type of construction work they do.
Another critical measure of your business is the length of time it has been operating around. Gone are the days when you could open a business today and, in a few months, qualify for all kinds of credit because you generated a ton of revenue.
Instead, most lending institutions want to see at least two years of self-employed history to back up any income claim on an application. This two-year history will show the stability of your income and employment.

Here is a list of supporting documents that will strengthen your application for a mortgage:
These documents will help your mortgage broker better understand the income you generate versus the income you declare. Of course, there is a lot of calculation behind identifying which income can be used and which cannot – leave that all to us and our expert mortgage brokers.
There are several self-employed mortgage lender options available that come with great rates and faster approval. There are also CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) programs that are built to assist self-employed people.

Here are 3 reasons our clients prefer us to other lenders:
If your tax returns indicate a low net income, but you have documentation proving you earn more, some lenders will still consider your application for a mortgage. Presenting reliable proof of your income will make the lender feel more comfortable about approving the loan for you.
It depends on what kind of mortgage you're applying for. For example, a self-employed mortgage may not be available to you because lenders want to see at least two years of self-employment history before approving your self-employed mortgage.
If you're applying for a traditional mortgage, your income from the previous two years as a traditional employee may be sufficient to convince lenders of your earning power.
While missed mortgage payments are the most common form of mortgage default, they aren’t the only reason you can default on your mortgage.
For instance, you can be considered in default by:
According to Investment Executive, 53 percent of Canadians were living paycheque to paycheque in 2019. As such, missed payments are more common than you might think.
For this reason, the best way to get your mortgage back to good standing after a default is to focus on paying off your outstanding debts as quickly as possible.
