Too many mortgage brokers are missing the biggest deal killer out there, says one Vancouver broker, and it can be easily avoided with one simple conversation.

    I have personally seen this happen many times over. I go over in detail with my clients now about what not to do after they have been approved and I leave them a list.

    I can't believe deals die because of this. What are we doing if we are not having this conversation with our clients.

    I missed something in this article? We tell all our clients the hazard of putting any credit in their name including increasing credit card debt while waiting a mortgage. It is as critical a piece of information as anything else in the process. Brokers are missing this?

    I wish my broker had this conversation with me.

    Can I ask what happened Kevin? And the end result?

    Bought a pre-build. Received the approval, 6 months later our vehicle breaks down and needed to be replaced. Purchased a new vehicle. Come walk through time, bank pulls a new credit bureau and broker phones us and explains that ratios are no longer within CMHC's guidelines. We had to find a co-signor or put 20% down or risk losing our deposit. Luckily my wife's father was able to co-sign. Broker said it was a condition printed in the forms we signed, but neither my wife nor I were specifically made aware of this fact.
