5-year Fixed Rate: 2.44%

Rate based on a $300,000 mortgage and 25-year amortization. Change

In Brief

There is no prepayment in full before maturity, except in the case of a bona fide sale of the property or a refinance with the lender. When payment security is a must, a 5-year fixed is the term of choice, and this is our lowest available 5-year fixed. It comes with solid options like a 120-day rate hold, 10% prepayment ability and a fair prepayment charge if you wish to pay it off early. Being a deep discount less frills rate, the two tradeoffs are that you must refinance with the lender (if you decide to refinance before 5 years) and blended rates are not offered (relevant if you want to increase the mortgage before 5 years).

*There is no prepayment in full before maturity, except in the case of a bona fide sale of the property or a refinance with the lender.

Features

Lets you move your mortgage to a new property without paying a penalty, subject to re-qualification. Portable
Yes (Not all provinces)
Gives you more time (60+ days total) to port your existing mortgage to a new property and avoid a penalty. Many lenders give you only 30 days to port your mortgage. The problem is that it’s sometimes not possible to close your new home within 30 days of the sale (closing) of your old home. Time to Port
1 day(s)
A “collateral charge” is a type of mortgage that lets you increase your mortgage without paying legal fees. The downside is that it’s often more expensive to switch lenders at maturity (because most lenders don’t pay your switching costs if you have a collateral charge). In addition, you rarely get the lender’s lowest rates on any new funds that you add to a collateral charge mortgage after closing. As a result, some people prefer the flexibility of a non-collateral charge mortgage. Collateral Charge
No
A penalty based on the lender’s normal interest rates, as opposed to artificially inflated posted rates (like at the Big 6 banks and many credit unions). The difference can be thousands, even tens of thousands, of dollars depending on your mortgage amount, term remaining and interest rates. Discount Penalty
Yes
Lets you add money to your mortgage with no penalty, and at fully discounted rates. Increase Without Penalty
No
