Mortgage Without The Stress Test
Starting from early 2018, the Government of Canada introduced the B-20 Guideline (Stress Test) that affected the ability of many Canadians in qualifying for a mortgage.
Stress Test was then implemented by many federally regulated financial institutions, such as the Big Banks. Based on the Stress Test means your application for a mortgage loan is qualified based on the 5-Year Benchmark Rate set by the Bank of Canada,
which is historically higher than the actual interest rate that is charged by the financial institutions to borrowers.
As a result, creating a stress effect to the potential borrowers that simulates a situation whereby the mortgage interest rates drastically increased.
The good news is, do you know, that there are regulated financial institutions that qualify you for a mortgage loan without the Stress Test?
This means that, without the Stress Test based qualification, you are able to borrow more with the same down payment amount!
