Simplifying The Mortgage Rule Changes

Update #1




Insured Mortgage / High Ratio Mortgage = Less than 20% down payment

Non Insured Mortgage / Conventional Mortgage = 20% or greater down payment / equity

Bank of Canada Rate = the 5 year fixed posted rate (currently 4.89%)

Contract Rate = the actual rate offered by the lender to the consumer

Benchmark Rate/Qualifying Rate = Stress Test: Bank of Canada Rate OR Contract Rate +2%, whichever is greater

LTV (Loan To Value) = the size of a mortgage compared to the value of the property

OSFI has implemented 3 new mortgage rule changes starting January 1, 2018
