Welcome to Canada's Private Lending Network®

Established in 2005, is a self-regulated organization which oversees Peer-to-Peer (P2P) & Private Lending industry participants who primarily trade in private, real-estate secured financial transactions and ask less questions than banks or other financial institutions.

What is a private lender? Any lender that is NOT:  a bank, treasury branch, credit union, loan corporation, trust corporation, insurance company nor any person engaged in the business of making loans. A private lender is a private individual who chooses to invests his or her accumulated wealth by loaning it to other persons on an occasional basis, either personally or through a privately held corporation.

In a phrase, private lenders are: "People Investing in People"

In accordance with multiple jurisdictions and regulatory requirements, let help with your peer-to-peer (P2P) and private investor-lender authentication and compliance requirements.

Fraudsters can sometimes solicit mortgage applications from trusting, unsuspecting mortgage applicants and well-meaning but unqualified mortgage brokers. To help prevent this sort of abuse, your mortgage broker should be participating in, which gives real estate owners more control over what their broker does with private financial and personal information, when dealing with legitimate peer-to-peer (P2P) and private lenders.

PrivateLenderCheck is the authentication division of PEMI® the Private Equity Mortgage Institute.

(prove you are not trying to take advantage of me)

(prove you will keep my information safe and secure from theft, even if I do not accept your terms)

(prove you will work with me if things go bad)

(prove you are not taking my information and re-selling or forwarding it (without my express permission), to other people)

Private Lender Mortgage Transaction Audit Services

Did your "private lender" convince you to get a mortgage or a so-called "private mortgage" and your client is not happy with it?

Were you aware or made aware of what you were getting yourself or your client into?

Are you concerned that your private lender was not licensed or, was not working in accordance to the regulatory requirements of their license, which caused your client to lose money?

Do a Private Lender Transaction Check!

PrivateLenderCheck is an initiative of MortgageQuote Canada Corp. If you have an existing mortgage and feel that you might be subject to loss caused by a private lender who did not act in their role with the requirements of their regulatory jurisdiction, then contact us.

  • For a fee, MortgageBrokerCheck will review and audit your mortgage transaction file and provide you with a report with information regarding the requirements of the mortgage licensing jurisdiction which governs your mortgage transaction and how your private lender can provide objective evidence that they fulfilled or did not fulfill their regulatory legal obligations to you.

This is great for Mortgage Brokers because even if they originated the transaction, they can show professionalism and ethics by helping their customer have the private lender transaction file audited on a 'without prejudice basis', in order to prevent or mitigate a claim of negiligence pursuant to errors and omissions guidelines.
