Mortgage Renewals

Mortgages renewals in Canada are traditionally issued on five-year fixed terms. When the term ends, you will need to decide what course of action to take. You can either renew with your existing lender or transfer to a new lender with a lower rate and better terms as long as you keep the mortgage amount the same. You also have the option to pull some equity out of your property, but this would be a refinance transaction which differs from a standard renewal.

Mortgage Renewal Pro Tip:

When you receive your existing lender’s renewal offer, always reach out to a mortgage broker to request a free quote on what rates are available. They have access to a wide array of lenders and can look around to see if they can find you a better rate than what your current lender is offering.

These lenders will generally cover the costs associated with transferring to them as well. Typically, they can lock in a rate four months prior to your renewal date, so if rates increase in the market, you will be protected.
