Is An Error Destroying Your Credit?

Your Credit Could Be Destroyed By A Simple Error!

As an experienced Mortgage Agent I have seen many different Credit reports.  There have been many instances when clients have come to us to get pre-approved and their credit scores have come out low or lower than anticipated due to incorrect information on their files. Until these credit issues are repaired, they cannot move forward with a mortgage.

Most common errors are:

  • A collection that is not yours
  • An account that is paid but shows up as it is in arrears
  • Someone else’s information on your bureau.  credit repair

Whatever the case may be there is usually a way to fix it.

First of all you must collect all the documentation to prove that your credit is clean.

Then have your proof of identity ready to share with the Credit Bureau.

Contact the Credit Bureau with the information and give them a full explanation of the error and why you believe it should be corrected.

It may take time to make a correction on your credit bureau but it can be done.  If you are in the process of trying to obtain a mortgage and it becomes clear that there is an error on your credit bureau the team at mimortgage.ca are ready to help you clear it up and get the mortgage that you want.

Thinking of refinancing your home?

Four valuable tips to ensure you get the best possible deal when refinancing

Considering a refinance on your mortgage is a big step and will require lots of thinking before you go ahead. Here are a few valuable tips that you should keep in mind when considering refinancing your current mortgage:

  1. Personal and employment circumstances

It is vital that you consider your employment and personal circumstances when deciding on a rate. If you feel that you are likely to be faced with changes to your circumstances in the near future, a variable rate maybe the way forward and then you can switch to a fixed rate once your situation improves.

  1. Explore payment options

All variable rate mortgages are convertible to a fixed rate without any penalties or fees to the applicant. According to the Financial Consumer Agency  of Canada, you will also have the option of capping interest rates to ensure that the rate does not go beyond the rate agreed upon and maintain what is referred to as a “hybrid” or a “combination” where the mortgage is partially financed at a fixed and a variable rate.

  1. State your terms

You can let your mortgage broker know the duration that you would like on your mortgage – from one year up to five years.  The amortization period of your mortgage will be based upon the payment amount and the frequency (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly) of your payments.

  1. Consider a flexible payment schedule

Depending on how fast you wish to complete paying off your mortgage, you have the option of choosing how frequently – weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, you would like to make payments. The sooner you reduce your principle amount will result in lower payments on interest.
