We don’t take your investment lightly. Our thorough approach to due diligence helps you assess and navigate risk, and ensures the security and protection of your investment (see our post “Due Diligence: Private Lending” for more detail).


Private lenders often need to make funds available to their borrowers swiftly. As such, closings are facilitated in a short period of time.


If you are in the process of drafting a mortgage commitment or agreement, it is important that you have it reviewed by a lawyer before signing. Every transaction is unique, and the commitment should be tailored accordingly. There are also many laws affecting the private lending arena which you should be made privy to, prior to finalizing your deal (see our post “Caution to Lenders: The Effect of Section 8 of the Interest Act on Interest Rates and Mortgage Default Penalties” for an example of such laws regulating lending).


If you have an upcoming private lending transaction, or have general inquiries, contact us at (905) 270-6660, or email us at for trustworthy and reliable advice.
