Dear Reader,

New CMHC Rules for Self-Employed Borrowers in effect TODAY

New rules for self-employed borrowers are effective today Friday, April 9th,
2010 for all mortgages insured by by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation
(CMHC) and pose new challenges for this category of clients.

*Purchases are only available up to 90% (previously 95%)

*Refinances are only available up to 85% (previously 90%)

*Commissioned sales borrowers are no longer eligible under this program

*A minimum of 2 years consecutive self-employment will no longer be required

*Borrowers must have a minimum of 2 years work experience in the same field

PLEASE NOTE: Genworth Financial Canada's (GNW) policies remain unchanged and self-employed applicants who have been in business for 2 years or longer continue to be eligible BUSINESS FOR SELF (ALT. A) program that means more Choice & Convenience for your potential clients.
