Mortgage Switch

A mortgage switch is as simple as it sounds, switch your mortgage from your current lender to a new lender. Many Canadian borrowers use a mortgage switch to get a better rate and terms for their mortgage. Switching your lender can be an easy way to change up the repayment of your mortgage to better meet your financial needs and goals.  

When you switch from one lender to another, your new lender repays your current outstanding mortgage balance, which they replace with your new mortgage. This is known as early repayment of a mortgage, which will generate a prepayment penalty of the interest rate differential (the difference between your present mortgage rate for the balance of your term and the current rate you want to get) or three months interest, whichever is greater.

Mortgage for Less can help you find a better mortgage and rate with a new lender, at no cost to you. In the case that you're breaking your current mortgage term to switch, we can find you a lender that will cover the penalties for your early mortgage repayment.

Reasons for a Mortgage Switch

You want a better rate than your current rate

Rate is one of the most common reasons for a mortgage switch. We can help you find a new competitive rate and a new lender would be happy to provide it.

In many cases borrowers looking for a switch have had a mortgage for a couple of years and would like to update to a better lower rate, if the case of rate decline be present. 

In other cases borrowers have improved their credit score and reduced the principal outstanding balance of their mortgage and would like to qualify for a better rate with a new lender. 

You have a variety of new responsibilities and would like a mortgage that suits your new budget

If you've had a mortgage for a couple of years or more there is a good chance that your life has seen some changes. Life is full of a variety of new responsibilities, opportunities and trials and it's important that your mortgage match whatever life has to throw at you.  

A mortgage switch can be a essential and strategic financial move, not just for your mortgage repayment and savings but for your personal finances too. At Mortgage for Less we're determined to get you your best rate and mortgage, contact us or fill out one of our many forms and we'd be happy to assess your mortgage and provide you advice and guidance towards a better lender.

You're financially thriving and would like to switch to a mortgage with better repayment options

Your finances are thriving and you know your surplus funds could be well spent repaying your mortgage off faster. The quicker you repay your mortgage the more you save on accumulating interest. In the case that you have extra funds or a greater income we can help switch you to a mortgage with better repayment and prepayment options to convenience the reduction your mortgage balance.

You've maintained excellent credit over the course of your mortgage and would like to try for a better mortgage rate and term

Over the past couple to several years of repaying your mortgage you have had the funds to maintain a good to excellent credit score. Assuming that you got your mortgage with a lesser score, if you've improved your credit score we can help you find a new and better lender who will offer you a better mortgage and rate with your updated financial profile.

A variety of reasons can hold someone back from getting the best mortgage, whether it be a higher rate or a limited mortgage. Maybe you didn't know what you were getting into and didn't get the best mortgage for your financial needs and goals.

I have used Mortage For Less for all my mortgages since purchasing my first home nearly 15 years ago. From our first experience Nick has always been amazing at providing advice and negotiating great deals, and we have been a loyal customers ever since. Nick also jumped in quickly to help us work out a line of credit through our mortgage when we inquired a few years ago, and he provides interesting updates on the market. I plan on sticking with Nick for as long as I own a home.
