Mortgage Terms and Conditions

Understanding the terms and conditions of your mortgage is essential for making informed decisions about your home financing. At Esto Mortgage, we believe in transparency and empowering our clients with knowledge. This page provides an overview of the key mortgage terms and conditions you should be aware of when obtaining a mortgage.
Interest Rate: The interest rate is the cost of borrowing money and is a critical component of your mortgage. It determines the amount of interest you’ll pay over the life of your loan. Interest rates can be fixed, meaning they remain constant throughout the term of the mortgage, or variable, meaning they fluctuate based on market conditions. Understanding the interest rate and its implications is crucial for budgeting and planning.
Amortization Period: The amortization period refers to the length of time it takes to repay your mortgage in full. In Canada, the maximum amortization period for high-ratio mortgages (mortgages with less than a 20% down payment) is typically 25 years. A longer amortization period results in lower monthly payments but also means paying more interest over the life of the mortgage. Shortening the amortization period can help you pay off your mortgage sooner and save on interest costs.
Payment Frequency: Payment frequency refers to how often you make mortgage payments. Common options include monthly, semi-monthly, bi-weekly, and weekly payments. Choosing the right payment frequency depends on your financial situation and budget. For example, making more frequent payments can help you pay off your mortgage faster and save on interest.
Prepayment Options: Prepayment options allow you to make additional payments towards your mortgage principal, reducing the overall interest you pay and helping you become mortgage-free sooner. Common prepayment options include making lump-sum payments, increasing regular payment amounts, or making double-up payments. Understanding the prepayment options available and any associated fees or restrictions is essential for managing your mortgage effectively.
Penalties: Mortgage penalties may apply if you break the terms of your mortgage agreement, such as prepaying your mortgage beyond the allowed limit or refinancing before the end of your term. Penalties can vary depending on factors such as the type of mortgage and the length of time remaining in your term. Understanding the penalties involved and their potential impact is crucial when considering changes to your mortgage.
Portability: Mortgage portability allows you to transfer your existing mortgage to a new property without incurring penalties. This can be beneficial if you’re planning to move before your mortgage term ends. Understanding the portability options available and any associated fees or conditions is important for ensuring flexibility in your homeownership journey.
Insurance Requirements: Depending on the down payment amount, type of property, and other factors, mortgage insurance may be required. Mortgage insurance protects the lender in the event of default. It’s essential to understand the insurance requirements specific to your mortgage, including any premiums or eligibility criteria.
