How Does a Professional Service Mortgage Work?

In order to qualify for a professional service firm mortgage, most lenders will require tax documents such as NOA’s (Notice Of Assessment) from the past 2-3 years to be included in the mortgage application.

In addition, the following documentation will be required.

  • Contracts showing expected revenue for the coming year
  • Financial statements for your business
  • Personal and Business credit scores
  • Proof that GST/HST has been paid in full
  • Articles of Incorporation and GST license
  • Proof that you are the owner of the business
  • Proof that down payment has not been gifted

    Is a Professional Service Mortgage Right For You?

    Typical professional services firms we deal with consist of doctors, lawyers, architects, accountants, engineering firms etc. These are often people whose organization makes a substantial annual income but the owners take home smaller dividends to minimize taxes.

    If you are a doctor, surgeon, lawyer, engineer, contractor etc who is self-employed, contact us today to see how we can help you with mortgage financing. We have worked with hundreds of professional service firms and love helping each client find the perfect solution to their challenging mortgage situation.

    Meet Ming: 

    Ming owns and operates a mid-size accounting firm specializing in mergers and acquisitions. Her team of 25 accountants service clients throughout Ontario with a big focus on the GTA. While her company grosses $10M annually, her take home salary is $500K and she wanted to qualify for a mortgage on her newly purchased cottage property in Muskoka. In order to qualify, Ming needed to show additional income to ensure the lenders would give her the additional financing for her mortgage. Ming worked closely with a SafeBridge mortgage agent who was able to use her Financial Statements to prove her income and help her secure financing on her dream cottage.
