Contrary to popular belief, your credit report is not the only piece of the puzzle needed for mortgage approval. Most lenders are also interested in your equity/debt ratio.
When a loan is secured by real estate, financial institutions generally do an assessment of the property to ensure it's worth the value you bought it for. You'll need to provide documentation that demonstrates evidence of the property value.
Understand that different financial institutions have different standards and do not necessarily assess all records the same way. One of the major benefits of doing business with a mortgage broker is that we already know the criteria of all the different lenders, and can direct you to the financial institution that will be the most favorable to your situation. Then, you can choose the best offer, best rates and terms to suit your specific needs.
