How Mortgage Plus Improvements Work

Step 1 Quotes & Apply

The first step is to apply with a mortgage broker to find out what your options are. You need to provide all of the quotes for the work being done up front. This amount is then added into the total amount to be mortgaged. Some items that are removable from the house or do not increase the home value will not be accepted ie. appliances.

Step 2 Receive Your Loan

After the mortgage funds you have 90 days to complete the work listed in the quotes. You must then provide paid invoices or have an inspection report done at your cost to verify the work has been completed.

Step 3 Receive Your Money!

After the lender approves that the work has been done the money will be released from the lawyers so you can reimburse yourself for the costs.
