  • What does a deferred mortgage payment mean?

    The term mortgage deferral is used to describe the temporary pause of your mortgage payments to provide short-term relief if you're experiencing financial difficulties. Although you will defer principal payments on the loan, the interest cost for that payment is capitalized/added to the mortgage loan balance creating a new higher balance and an increase in interest costs.

    For PIT payments (principal, interest and property tax), the tax portion of the payment may also be capitalized.  This will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

    If you have chosen mortgage life insurance, those payments must continue to be made each month to ensure the insurance policy remains in place.

  • Will my property taxes continue to be paid if I defer the tax portion of my payment?

    Yes, we will continue to make payments to your property tax municipality if you have deferred the tax portion of your payment. The tax portion of the payment will be capitalized.

  • Do I qualify for a deferral?

    We are assessing each client’s situation on a case by case basis. The COVID-19 mortgage deferral program is available for clients who are experiencing a change in their current financial situation that impacts their ability to make their mortgage payments.  Examples of a change in financial situation include but are not limited to, reduction in income, job loss or unpaid time off directly related to COVID-19.

    To qualify, it is important that your mortgage is in good standing.
