  • What's a Mortgage?
    Most high-value property is too expensive for people to buy just using savings or cash. Buying in cash may also not be advantageous from a fiscal perspective or when it means you put all your money into a property but have no remaining liquidity. Mortgages are loans that lenders offer to allow individuals to borrow funds to buy a property if you can’t or don’t want to buy it outright. You repay the lender over several years. For most mortgages, you will need to put down a cash downpayment. You will owe the remaining amount to your lender, and you will repay the loan in monthly installments over a set period (known as the loan term). If you cannot repay the loan, your lender can repossess your home.
  • What different types of Mortgages are there?
    OPEN MORTGAGES If you want to make large payments on your mortgage or pay off the entire mortgage without penalty, then an open mortgage is for you. An open mortgage offers maximum flexibility. These homeowners are willing to accept some fluctuation in the interest rate for the flexibility of paying off part or the entire mortgage before the term is complete. CLOSED MORTGAGES A closed mortgage is a commitment with a pre-determined interest rate, over a pre-determined period of time. A buyer who uses a closed mortgage will likely have to pay the lender a penalty if the loan is fully paid before the end of the closed term. With a closed mortgage, the borrower may select a fixed rate or variable/adjustable rate depending upon their needs or preference. See “Rates” for more information on the types of rates. Closed mortgages generally have lower interest rates than open mortgages. Most lenders will allow borrowers with closed mortgages to make a lump sum payment of up to 10%, 15%, or 20% of the original mortgage amount once a year without penalty. This payment goes directly toward paying down the principal of the amount owing. Many lenders will also allow a borrower to increase the mortgage payment by up to 10%, 15%, or 20% as well as allowing the lump sum payment. CONVERTIBLE MORTGAGES A convertible mortgage is an agreement made at the beginning of a term that allows homeowners to change the type of mortgage they hold during its term. If a homeowner wants to start with an open mortgage and then lock into a closed mortgage, a convertible mortgage is the right choice. It offers lower rates than an open mortgage and has the option of switching to a closed term. A conversion to a fixed rate mortgage can also be done by most lenders when the borrower has originally selected a variable rate mortgage and now wishes to move to a fixed rate before the end of the term. HYBRID MORTGAGES A hybrid mortgage is a term used when there is more than one type of mortgage contained in a single mortgage registration. The registration could include a fixed rate portion, a variable rate portion, a line of credit portion, or any combination of these. Each lender will have their own unique name for this type of mortgage allowing anywhere from 2 to 100 different products contained in the registration of the mortgage. This product is often suggested for the savvy borrower who will use this as part of their overall financial plan. REVERSE MORTGAGES This type of mortgage allows homeowners 55 years and older to convert their home equity into either a lump sum payment or monthly cash payment(s), generally for living expenses. A homeowner’s equity is drawn down by the lender to the homeowner - the borrower. When the homeowner no longer wishes to occupy the property as their principal residence, or upon the death of the borrower, the loan balance is due. The balance of the loan is settled from the proceeds of the sale of the property either by the owner themselves or their heirs.

  • How much can I borrow?
    For most of the market, lenders will offer a maximum of 4.5 times a borrower’s income. Recently, some lenders have raised this to 5 or 5.5 times a borrower’s income, although this tends to be in exceptional cases for individuals who are not high-net-worth individuals but who have higher salaries. Lenders base the 4.5 times your salary calculation on what they believe most borrowers can comfortably afford in terms of repayments and limiting risk for all parties. For high-net-worth individuals, there is more flexibility around what you can borrow, often with less emphasis on specific multiples of your income, provided the mortgage is clearly affordable. High-net-worth mortgages are available to anyone with an income of more than $300,000 or assets of more than $3 million (excluding the value of your principal residence). If you are eligible for a high-net-worth mortgage, you effectively opt-out of regulated oversight, which means lenders have much more flexibility in what they can offer you, affordability and so on. These mortgages are advantageous if you have significant wealth but comparatively little income, global assets, multiple income streams and so on. Overall, a high-net-worth mortgage makes it easier to borrow more based on your global wealth rather than your income in exclusivity.
  • How much downpayment do I need?
    In Canada, first time home buyers can purchase a residential property for 5 % as long as the property price doesn’t exceed $500,000 Canadian Dollars.
  • What is LTV?
    LTV stands for loan-to-value. The loan-to-value ratio refers to how much you borrow as a percentage of the property's value. Amongst other things, lenders use the LTV to assess risk – generally, the higher the LTV, the higher the risk for the lender. 75% or 80% LTV is usual for the majority of mortgages, although some lenders offer higher LTV mortgages for the right borrowers – usually high-net-worth individuals.
  • How long does a mortgage last for?
    The shortest mortgages have terms of 2-3 years, but these tend to be rare and used in particular scenarios. At the other end of the scale, it is sometimes possible to have 40-year mortgages, but these tend to be offered to mainstream borrowers with good incomes looking to maximize what they can borrow, rather than the norm for high-net-worth individuals. For high-net-worth individuals, mortgages with terms of 5 to 25 years are typical, although mortgages in the 5-to-15-year range tend to be the most usual.
  • How do I know I’m being offered the best mortgage available to me?
    Syndicate Lending Corporation (SLC) is an independent mortgage broker. As such, we can approach any lender in the market to negotiate a deal for you; you can also trust that we will be working exclusively in your best interests. SLC also isn’t bound by any incentives to work with or offer you products from specific lenders, as can be the case with other mortgage brokers. Wherever possible, we will negotiate at least a couple of offers for you to compare. We will also talk you through all your available options and your offers, including the advantages and drawbacks of each, so you can make an informed decision about what’s best for you. We will also be able to explain to you why we approached specific lenders for your mortgage offers (often lenders have specializations in certain types of mortgages, or your profile/needs will align well with the expertise of a specific lender). Sometimes you will find that a slightly more expensive rate with more flexible or advantageous terms is more attractive to you, so we will never promise to deliver the ‘cheapest’ offer. Whatever we offer you, it will be the very best fit for your needs, and we at SLC will always share everything you need to know to make the best decision.
  • What fees are involved in getting a mortgage?

With a stronger application, we would be able to negotiate (even) more affordable rates and terms.
  • Reverse Mortgage
    A reverse mortgage is a mortgage loan, usually secured by a residential property, that enables the borrower to access the unencumbered value of the property. The loans are typically promoted to older homeowners and typically do not require monthly mortgage payments. Borrowers are still responsible for property taxes and homeowner’s insurance. Reverse mortgages allow elders to access the home equity they have built up in their homes now, and defer payment of the loan until they die, sell, or move out of the home. Because there are no required mortgage payments on a reverse mortgage, the interest is added to the loan balance each month. The rising loan balance can eventually grow to exceed the value of the home, particularly in times of declining home values or if the borrower continues to live in the home for many years. However, the borrower (or the borrower’s estate) is generally not required to repay any additional loan balance in excess of the value of the home.
  • Business Purchase Financing
    Business loans are an important factor in writing your success as a business owner. Navigating the different business financing options can be confusing. We can help you review the most appropriate route to financing your acquisition so you can find the best fit for your business needs. Whichever route you go, we will assist you in building strong businesses and make sure that you have access the right amount of capital at the best rates.
  • Mergers and Acquisition Financing
    Mergers and acquisition financing is usually a complex mission requiring thorough planning, since acquisition finance structures often require a lot of variations and combinations, unlike most other purchases.Acquisition finance refers to the different sources of capital that are used to fund a merger or acquisition. Moreover, acquisition financing is seldom procured from one source. With various alternatives available to finance an acquisition, the challenging part is getting the appropriate mix of financing that offers the lowest cost of capital.
  • Bridge Loan
    A bridge loan was deigned to “bridge” the gap between the time your existing home is sold and your new property is purchased. It is a temporary financing option that enables you to use the equity in your current home to pay the down payment on your next home, while you wait for your existing home to sell.
  • Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) Financing
    A Special Purpose Vehicle, also called a special purpose entity (SPV), is a subsidiary created by a parent company to isolate financial risk. Its legal status as a separate company makes its obligations secure even if the parent company goes bankrupt. We can assist with the creation of such entities for the procurement of financing.
  • High Net Worth Financing
    We provide financing to High Net Worth Family offices for a variety of reasons. This type financing is rather complex in nature and generally involves several asset classes dispersed over several countries. Our team of analysts work with several legal firms worldwide to understand the complexities of the transaction and underwrite these loans on behalf of a spectrum of lenders who specialize in such type of lending.

  • Step 4: Discussing your Options
    We will then explain what we think is possible (from the widest view of the market), what it will cost, what the process will be and what the risks or problems to be overcome are.
  • Step 5: Agreeing on your Plan
    At this point, if the client is happy, we will set to work on agreeing on the terms in principle, assembling paperwork and documents to support the case, discussing the lending/relief request with the correct people at the banks we think are best placed and doing as much as possible to ensure the first approach will work.
  • Step 6: Submitting your Application
    Then, at this point, if the client wishes to proceed with a formal application, our fees are agreed and we set to work on the formal application.
