When it comes time to renew your mortgage, most lenders will send you a renewal letter when there is around 3 months remaining on your term. While nearly 60 percent of borrowers simply sign and send back their renewal without ever shopping around for a more favourable interest rate, this is actually the best time to check out your options.
Since your term is ending, this is a great time to shop the market or redo your mortgage WITHOUT PENALTY! If you have been wanting to switch your mortgage from fixed to variable-rate (or vice-versa), or want to move to a different lender or try for a lower rate, your DLC Mortgage Professional can help!
Do be advised, if you are considering switching lenders, you will need to inquire about any existing life insurance or other policies that you have, as this could be affected if you change lenders. You should also be aware that and NEW insurance could be more expensive as you are re-applying and your circumstances (age, health) will have changed since your initial mortgage term and insurance plan was signed.
