Mortgage Approval Process
In order to obtain a mortgage approval, we must obtain a credit check on all borrowers as authorized during the application process.  Credit checks are only valid for a certain length of time (typically 30 to 60 days).  From time to time it is required to obtain a second credit check.  By authorizing us to obtain one credit check, you are are also authorizing us to obtain addition credit checks as needed for the same mortgage application only.  Should you apply for a different mortgage, you will be required to re-authorize us to obtain a credit check for that mortgage.

The information collected during the application process may be shared, only as necessary, to any related parties which can include (but is not limited to) lenders (institutional or private), solicitors, Realtors, appraisers or any other related parties.

By applying for a mortgage with us, you are agreeing that both the applicant and co-applicants can discuss the merits of the application with the broker/agent.  In other words, there may be times when it is necessary to discuss information regarding the application/mortgage with co-applicants.  In the situation of spouses (or common law partners) both applicants consent that we are allowed to discuss the situations/information with either person.  In the event that the co-applicants/guarantors are not spouses or common law partners, no personal information will be discussed with the other applicants/guarantors.

Fraudulent Information
If an application or any information submitted is perceived to be fraudulent or misrepresented, this information will be forwarded to CMHC, Genworth, AIG United Guaranty and/or the lenders.  The information will be forwarded if fraud is suspected, even without proof.  These companies will investigate to determine if there were any fraudulent intentions.
