Prepare Your Down-payment Account:
If your down-payment comes from your own savings, ensure that the source of all large deposits is trackable and tracible. According to the Anti-Money Laundering Act, all lenders in Canada are obliged to make an enquiry and do their due diligence to ensure that the source of down-payment is legitimate and clear. As a rule of thumb, they would ask you to provide a minimum three-month history from your savings account. If there is any large deposit into your account during that period, be prepared to provide some additional documentation to prove the source of it.
