No Down Payment Mortgage
If you would like to purchase a house, but don't have enough savings to cover a 5% down payment and closing costs, our No Down Payment programs might be able to help!
To qualify for the No Down Payment program, you need to have good credit with a minimum credit score of at least 650. There cannot be any outstanding collections or a bankruptcy appearing on your credit report.
You must be able to prove your income via paystubs, T4s and/or Revenue Canada Notice of Assessments.
Under the current mortgage rules, the banks are only allowed to finance up to 95% of the purchase price on a mortgage. However, we have lenders that will finance the 95% on the mortgage AND lend you a separate loan for the 5% down payment. Sometimes, we can consolidate some small debts and/or add additional funds to help cover some of your closing costs.
As of May 1, 2017, the Province of Nova Scotia has a NEW down payment assistance loan program to help First Time Home Buyers obtain a 5% down payment. To see all of the program's criteria, you can downlad the Down Payment Assistance Program fact sheet from our Library.
