Toronto Reverse Mortgage (CHIP)

A reverse mortgage Toronto is as simple as it sounds, a mortgage that pays you, instead of you paying it and there is no repayment of the mortgage. It's an essential mortgage product for people who are equity rich and cash poor. A reverse mortgage in Toronto allows a homeowner to cash in their home equity through installments or a lump sum without selling their home.

You make no payments as the amount you borrow gets paid back to the The Home Equity Bank when your home is sold.

To qualify for a Toronto reverse mortgage you must be 55 or older and have 55% of available home equity in your current residence.

About CHIP Reverse Mortgage Toronto

The basics of a CHIP Reverse Mortgage for homeowners 55+

  • No payments are required while the homeowner lives in the home
  • No income or credit qualifications (you don’t need to be employed)
  • Funds can be received as a lump sum or over time and are tax-free
  • When your home is sold the Reverse Mortgage is paid back

How can a CHIP Reverse Mortgage help?

  • You are finding you want an extra $500 , 1000 or 2000 or more each month to manage your bills and have a good lifestyle in your later years. Why struggle month to month in the home you want to enjoy into your twilight years when a Reverse Mortgage will easily take that burden away and you don’t need to have income or credit requirements.. you just need equity in your home.

Seniors today are living longer, saving less, spending more and carrying more debt than ever before. The CHIP Reverse Mortgage Toronto Plan can meet the needs for cash flow by providing you with a long-term alternative with borrowing against your home equity while not having to make any payments to cover the mortgage—this is all settled up when you sell your house.

Nick and his staff were very efficient and helpful. Nick in my opinion went above and beyond what was required in arranging my new mortgage.  This has been my experience over the past 25 years when dealing with Mortgage for Less and Nick specifically.

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.
