Line of Credit for P.Eng

Hi There,

I have a very good credit score above 800 but my debt ratio is about 60%. I am wondering which Bank has a special package for Professional Engineers (P.Eng) that my application for Line of Credit could be approaved.

Thanks,

Try National Bank. Look at their website. May get bank prime for unsecured LOC. They have tough lending guidelines though. Good luck.

I think it is Prime + 1 for unsecured LOC. HELOC is at prime as far as I know.

Professional Line of Credit programs have special adjudication in terms of credit limit and interest rate.... it's still an income-based application and you need to have the income to support the loan.

You'll likely need a strong co-borrower to get approved.

Prime + 1 is pretty good. Is this only for engineers?

Is there any discount regarding the income to expense ratio for engineers? Debt service ratio? Or they still follow the same guidelines as the regular customers?

As far as I know, they don't discount further but you may need to talk to them to see if they do.

which banks give a good rate for engineers?

Right now I am with RBC and I'm getting Prime (3.45%) + 2.25 = 5.7% for unsecured LOC. Where can I do better?
