About Mortgages

A mortgage is a loan given by a lender to a buyer to help with the purchase of a home or property. The mortgage loan is usually repaid in regular payments that generally include both the principal and interest.

Once you’ve settled on a property to acquire and the mortgage has been approved by the lender, the mortgage details will be finalised by the lawyer.

If you fail to make your monthly mortgage payments, the lender can take possession of your property.

A mortgage amortization period is the period of time required to completely pay off a mortgage if all conditions are met and all payments are made on time.

A mortgage term is the length of time that the conditions of a mortgage, such as the interest rate and payment schedule, are in effect. Terms can range between 6 months to 10 years. At the end of the term, the mortgage loan must either be paid in full, renewed or renegotiated, usually with new conditions.

A fixed-rate mortgage has a locked-in interest rate, meaning it won’t change during the term of the mortgage.

A variable-rate mortgage is where the interest rate fluctuates based on the current market conditions. The payments will generally remain the same, but the amount of each payment that goes toward the principal or the interest on the loan changes as interest rates fluctuate.

An open mortgage is a flexible mortgage loan that lets a borrower pay off or renegotiate their loan at any time, without having to pay penalties. Because of this flexibility, open mortgages usually have a higher interest rate than closed mortgages.

A closed mortgage can’t normally be paid off or renegotiated before the end of the term without the lender’s permission and a financial penalty. Some closed mortgages allow for extra or accelerated payments, but only if specified in the mortgage agreement.

A short term mortgage lasts less than 3 years and is typically chosen by people who believe that they can pay off their loan within that time or are planning to sell the property after finishing payments. Interest rates for this type of loan are lower, but if you choose to renew your mortgage, chances are rates may be higher.

A long term mortgage is best for those who are planning to keep their property for a long period of time since they’re securing the interest rate that they’re starting off with; this is recommended for those who need the security of making payments for an extended time.

Insurance that protects the lender against default on a mortgage. Mortgage loan insurance is provided by CMHC or a private company and is usually required for any mortgage where the down payment is less than 20% of the purchase price or lending value of a home. 

Mortgage loan insurance helps Canadians purchase homes earlier and at interest rates that are comparable to buyers with a larger down payment.

They’re different. HELOC is like a second mortgage, only you’ll be using your home’s current equity as the source of funding and you can use up to 65% of it. However, you still need to pay back what you owe plus interest otherwise you may default on your property.

With a mortgage loan, the funds will be provided by your lender and you’ll be paying for the mortgage every month until the agreed period of time.

You can still access your home equity even if you’ve done it before; you can use up to 65% of your home’s equity. All you need is an appraisal and the help of your mortgage broker to check if you have enough equity for the loan.

Yes. Just ask your mortgage broker for guidance and assistance for the best mortgage option for your requirement
