Entrepeneurs can qualify for a mortgage without proof of income (Alt-A Program)

At Pro Link Mortgage we understand that as a consultant, contract worker, or independent business owner your taxable income may not reflect your true income. And with more Canadians becoming self-employed everyday lending institutions have developed a mortgage based on credit history and confirmation that you donít have any outstanding taxes. With this new program Canadaís working population can now obtain financing up to 97% of the value of the property they are buying.

Clients with good credit rating and have no outstanding personal taxes. They must prove they have been self-employed for a minimum of three years by supplying at least two forms of written, third part documentation such as a business credit report, business licence, G.S.T. returns or articles of incorporation.
