About Mortgage Insurance

Financial institutions are required by law to insure all mortgages with a loan to value ratio of less than 80%. This insurance protects the lender against borrower default.

Note: Provicial Sales Tax (8%) is applicable on mortgage insurance premiums, is due the date of closing, and is not rolled into a mortgage. Mortgage insurance premiums are exempt from the full Harmonized Sales Tax.
