Additional Assistance With High Ratio Mortgages

A high ratio mortgage is another way to get you into a home if you do not have the required 20% downpayment that is required for a conventional mortgage.

This mortgage must be insured through a mortgage default insurance provider such as CMHC or SAGEN. You will be charged a default insurance premium which will be a percentage of your mortgage amount. This amount can be added to your mortgage an be repaid as part of your regular mortgage payments.

For details on these default insurers please refer to the CMHC and SAGEN websites.
