Government Changes Mortgage Options for London, Ontario

Mike De Sousa

It was talked about, debated over and then enacted, all within a few weeks, but the Government of Canada decided that protecting the hot housing market was needed.  I like the changes!

I have always thought that refinancing a mortgage is part of a bigger problem and that is managing cash flow inefficiently!  Now, if you want to consolidate your debts into one mortgage payment, you can only get 90% of the value of your home and not the 95% that was in place.

All borrowers will now have to be qualified based on the 5 year fixed rate, despite what term they are taking.

Finally, anyone who is buying a non-owner occupied property will need 20% down payment.

These are good changes!  Let's keep perspective here and look at what was happening: There are numerous seminars teaching vulnerable consumers how to buy rental properties using no money down techniques;  All sorts of banks and mortgage brokers have been trying to convince their clients to refinance their debt every 2-3 years; and banks are telling their customers that variable is the way to go because it's cheaper!

Thanks for reading!
