Eric Clementi was the person that helped me from the day that I asked for a quote online. He was very thorough with explaining every minor details that might be misunderstood between the client and the provider. Eric is very professional with his tone of voice which makes a potential client feel at ease. Nonetheless, I’ve tried different insurance broker, their monthly fees are way above the average, Alliance income Services Corp has the most decent fee for a family of five… it’s a bang for the buck kind of thing.

What is Mortgage Life Insurance?

If, for whatever reason, you are no longer able to make payments on your mortgage, Mortgage Insurance will cover the missed payments so that you can avoid the foreclosure of your property. Your policy premium payments will stop only once your mortgage is fully paid off.

You will also have the peace of mind that in the unfortunate event of your death, your family will not have to worry about paying the mortgage or searching for a new home. However, the policy payments will always go straight to the financial institution you hold your mortgage with, and not your family.

Is Mortgage Insurance required?

Yes and no, as it depends on your down-payment amount. If you put down below 20% of the property’s value, Mortgage Insurance will be required by the lender to protect them in case you default on your loan payments.

 

A 20% down-payment is unattainable for many new home buyers, especially due to the rapidly rising housing prices. The minimum down-payment in Canada for first time buyers is 5%, which is what most people choose to pay. If the value of your desired property is above $500,000 but below a million, you will have to pay 5% of the $500,000 plus additional 10% of the remaining amount. Properties valued at one million or above require a 20% down-payment and do not qualify for mortgage insurance.

 

Purchasing a Mortgage Insurance provides security to your lender, which enables them to offer sustainable interest rates on your loan.

How is Mortgage Insurance cost calculated?

Your Mortgage Insurance cost will always depend on the desired property’s value and your down-payment amount. The lower the value of the property and the bigger the down-payment, the lower Mortgage Insurance cost will be.

20% Down Payment

Completely avoid the need for Mortgage Insurance if you can muster up a 20% down payment on your desired property.

Down Payment Percentage

Even if 20% down payment is out of reach, try to contribute an extra amount to reach a new down payment percentage bracket. The more money you put down, the lower your Mortgage Insurance will be.

Shorter Amortization Period

Your mortgage amortization period is the total amount of time it takes to completely pay off your mortgage. Opting for a shorter term, you will have higher monthly payments, but you will pay it off sooner and stop making mortgage payments.

Pay Above Your Monthly Payments

Whenever you can afford it, make extra payments on your mortgage loan to pay it off early. Your Mortgage Insurance payments end as soon as your mortgage is paid off.
