Mortgage Refinance

Refinance to 80% of your Home’s Value with no CMHC fee or to 85% with a CMHC fee

With the significant appreciation in housing prices over the past five years, many consumers have taken advantage of the refinance program offered through CMHC and Genworth. No one likes to refinance their home to pay out credit card debt, car loans or line of credit, but sometimes it makes sense to review this option in more detail.

Here is a quick checklist:

  1. Are you tired of making four or five different payments each month?
  2. Do you find yourself making minimum payments each month?
  3. Are the other creditors charging interest rates which are higher than today’s mortgage rates?

Once again, it helps to have a professional consultants from Trimor Home Finance explain this program and review your individual needs in detail. If your original mortgage was insured, you only pay the insurance premium on the new money borrowed.

Loan-to-value ratio limits

‘Loan-to-value’ (LTV) is the relationship between the principal balance of a mortgage and the property value. For example, if you have a house valued at $100,000 with a $90,000 loan, you have a 90% LTV ($90,000 divided by $100,000 = 90%). For this program, the maximum LTV ratio is 90.00%

Amortization options

Available for extended amortizations up to 35 years (refer to 30/35 Year Product Overview for premium schedules). If a full premium is paid on the entire mortgage the amortization can be up to 35 years.

Premium rates

The new premium payable will be the lesser of the premium as a percentage of the total new loan amount or the premium as a percentage of the top-up portion from the current loan amount.
