Closing costs

1) Three months of account history showing you have had the closing costs saved for at least three months

      • the best way to complete this is to log into your online banking, go to your e-statements, save and send the last three months of statements


      • all lenders in Canada need to see that you have, in addition to your down payment, 1.5% of the purchase price to cover closing costs
        • On a $300,000 home, for example, this would be ($300,000 times 0.015) $4500
      • closing costs can only come from personal savings
      • if the funds were held in more then one account during the three months, you must provide the most recent account history for the period of time the funds were within the different accounts
      • the statement or a combination of statements must show your name, the financial institutions name, the account number and the three months history
      • lenders will not accept documents with information blacked-out
      • mobile phone screenshots are not accepted
