Also, they have a vast network of partners who help customers find the best mortgage solutions. Besides, the company has operated across Canada for over 15 years and has A+ accreditation from BBB.

However, there are some disadvantages. The company’s rates vary in different provinces, so the customer needs to contact a professional to find out the rates.

Loan conditions

The first step for the client is to get in touch with one of the company’s experts to tell them about their mortgage goals. After that, the expert finds a solution. Dominion Lending Centres provides mortgages for buying homes, moving, refinancing, renewing, and reverse mortgages. Also, the company offers commercial mortgages.

The company’s rates may vary from province to province, but according to the company’s website, the current prime rate is 3,70%. The current variable rate is 2.80%. The term varies from 6 months to 10 years.

The customer should be aiming for a credit score of 680 for at least one borrower (or guarantor), especially if they are putting under 20% down. If the client can make a larger down payment of 20% or more, then a score of 680 is not required. The customer needs to secure a downpayment of at least 5% for a $500.000 mortgage. Besides, the customer must fit in basic mortgage conditions such as being older than 18 years old and providing the required documents such as the government-issued personal identification, one month of recent pay stubs from any applicants who will be listed on loan, a letter of employment, the most recent two years’ worth of personal CRA tax filings and financials (if incorporated), three months of bank account statements, documentation to explain any unusual (generally non-payroll) large deposits or withdrawals. In addition, the company recommends the customer get pre-approved. This can be done through a Mortgage Professional to ensure they get the best mortgage product from the best rate to the best term agreement.

Methods of loan funding

Loan funding way depends on the lender Dominion Lending Centres recommends you. Unfortunately, open sources do not publish these details.
