Mortgage Market Changes

Effective in April – make sure you’re in the know

Home buyers and real estate investors need to keep up with some upcoming changes to mortgage rules that could affect their purchase, if they are applying for a mortgage with a down payment of less than 20% of the value of the property.

Qualifying for a Mortgage

Borrowers applying for a variable-rate mortgage or a fixed-rate mortgage with a term of less than 5 years must qualify based on the Bank of Canada’s five-year fixed posted mortgage rate.

Rental Properties

A minimum down payment of 20% will be needed for government-backed mortgage insurance on non-owner-occupied properties such as rental properties.  There are also changes in how much of rental income can be used when qualifying for financing.
