Automatic Renewal

If you don’t take action, the renewal of your mortgage term may be automatic. If your mortgage plan is set to auto-renew, it will say so in the renewal statement.

  • If you do not return the signed renewal agreement by your maturity date, your Prime Mortgage will be automatically renewed into a six-month fixed rate convertible term. In the event you do not provide us with a signed renewal agreement by your maturity date, your mortgage will be automatically renewed into a six month fixed rate convertible term mortgage.
  • This term allows you to convert into a fixed rate mortgage at a later date without penalty; however, it also comes with a higher interest rate than our CMLS fixed and variable rate terms.
  • If you have been automatically been renewed into six-month fixed rate convertible term, talk to us today about converting to one of our standard product offers to reduce your interest costs and avoid any reinvestment fees.

Renewing Your CMLS Mortgage
prior to Maturity (EARLY RENEWAL)

An early renewal is a mid-term change to your mortgage contract before the designated renewal or maturity date. There are times where it makes financial sense to change your mortgage such as to take advantage of lower interest rates, to reduce monthly payments.

  • An early renewal involves renegotiating the mortgage term and interest rate before the maturity date.
  • A Prepayment Charge will apply (either up front or blended into the new rate)
    • The Prepayment Charge can be either paid upfront in full or blended into the new 5-year fixed term.
  • You may have the option of either paying the full penalty upfront or if your are an existing customer; you can take advantage of our Customer Loyalty Program that provides you with the option of blending a portion or the full penalty into the new interest rate for a new 5 year fixed term.

Refinancing your CMLS Mortgage

Refinancing your mortgage involves taking out a new loan to pay off your original mortgage loan. In many cases, homeowners refinance to take advantage of lower market interest rates, cash out a portion of their equity, or to reduce their monthly payment with a longer repayment term.

  • Did you know you can refinance and borrow up to 80% of the current property value of your home? The amount you borrow can simply be added to your existing mortgage.
  • The amount you borrow is then simply added to your existing mortgage. We have a number of refinancing solutions available.
  • A mortgage refinance is when you terminate your current mortgage and start a new one.
  • This results in interest penalties, so make sure to speak to a licensed CMLS mortgage specialist for full details by calling 1 888-995-2657 option 3 or email resiretention@cmls.ca to discuss the possibility of a penalty rebate under the CMLS Customer Loyalty Program.
