Standard Residential Mortgage

B2B Bank mortgages offer a prepayment privilege equal to 15% of the mortgage principal in a single payment per year. Alternatively, you can increase your mortgage payments by up to 15% yearly. One can start using their prepayment privileges only after the first anniversary of the mortgage. Like most mortgage lenders, you would have to pay a mortgage prepayment penalty if you repay your mortgage early or make a prepayment greater than your prepayment privilege.

Insured Mortgage

With mortgage default insurance, a borrower can borrow up to 95% of the price of their primary residence at the time of purchase. The underlying property can have between 1 and 4 residential units. This mortgage requires a minimum credit score of 600 and can be amortized over 25 years. Gross and total debt services should stay below 39% and 44%, respectively. No lender fee is charged.

Conventional Mortgage

Under this program, one can borrow up to 80% of the price of their primary residence with up to 4 units. This program can be used either to purchase your home or to refinance your mortgage and access the equity in your home. Your credit score should be 600 or greater, and GDS and TDS ratios should stay below 39% and 44%, respectively. Your mortgage should be amortized over a maximum of 30 years.

Alternative Conforming Mortgage

Individuals who cannot qualify for an insured or conventional mortgage can apply for an alternative mortgage. A B2B Bank alternative permits loan to value (LTV) up to 80% for a property which has between one and four units. They need to have a minimum credit score of 540 and should amortize their mortgage in 30 years or less. Debt service ratios can reach 55% under this program. You will likely face a lender fee under this program.

Alternative non-Conforming Mortgage

Individuals who cannot qualify for an insured or conventional mortgage or even an alternative conforming mortgage can apply for an alternative non-conforming mortgage. A B2B Bank alternative non-conforming loan permits loan to value (LTV) up to 65% for a property which has between one and four units. They need to have a minimum credit score of 500 and should amortize their mortgage in 25 years or less. Debt service ratios can reach 70% under this program. You will face a lender fee under this program.

Equity Mortgage

B2B equity mortgages permit the borrower to have an elevated debt service ratio if they have significant equity in their home. This program is for owner-occupied properties with less than five units. The property is expected to be well maintained and use municipal services in a municipality. The amortization period can be 30 years or less. Income should be validated, and the property should become the borrower's primary residence. This program can offer closed fixed-rate mortgages with 1-5, 7 or 10 years or 3 or 5-year variable rate mortgages. The property would require a full appraisal, and the down payment should come from the borrower's savings or assets.

A minimum credit score of 650 is required for owner-occupied properties and 680 for second homes and rentals. Maximum allowed values for TDS and GDS are 39% and 44%, respectively. Leeway in requirements may be offered in exchange for charging a lender's fee.

Under this program, one can purchase mortgage default insurance from Sagen for a primary residence with one or two units. Default insurance would limit amortization to 25 years but allow borrowers with a credit score of 680 or higher to borrow up to 90% of the home price. If you can put down a minimum of 20% of the home price, a credit score of 650 would suffice for this insured mortgage.
