Securing A Mortgage Loan…

Securing a mortgage loan involves multiple parties to work together – lender borrower and mortgage broker. While all the process is taken care of and you have been selected as a successful candidate, you must think, what’s next?

Offer letter

Once the candidate has secured a mortgage loan, he is sent an offer letter so that all information can be checked and required changes can be done. This is extremely important in order to check for any mis-information or wrong information. It also ensures that all information is updated according to changes such as income, employment status or purchase price.


The next step involves signing the mortgage offer as all information has been credited by both parties. This can be done in-person as well as online.

Down Payment

After the agreement has been passed the broker agrees to a date where all money exchanges should occur making sure all funds due come from banks or financial information that you have provided in the applications. It is advised that loan duty or any payables should not be transacted or cashed back through cheques.

Congratulations on Being a Homeowner!

This whole process after the mortgage loan approval is known as closing disclosure. Your date of closing is the same date you attain your home ownership. Connect with your broker to get the new keys to your home and ta-da! You are now a new homeowner.
