Identity Theft and your SIN number

Should You or Should You Not Give Out Your SIN!
When you visit your Mortgage Broker or Banker for the first time to obtain a mortgage pre-approval, there are certain documents and information you will be asked to provide so your mortgage application can be completed.
Lenders, in general, like to see SINs on mortgage applications. As CAAMP’s VP of Education and Professional Affairs, Mark Webb, notes: “Lenders ask for the SIN but the client has no obligation to provide it. If the client refuses then it is up to the lender to assess how they will respond to the application.”
