  • What is CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance?


    By panasia1234




    CMHCs Mortgage Loan Insurance is an insurance that covers your lenders risks associated with financial loss that can occur when a homeowner defaults on their mortgage loan and in turn increases your access to mortgage financing and at the most competitive interest rates possible.


    As with any insurance, there are insurance premiums to be paid. The amount of the premium varies and can range between 0.65% and 2.75% depending upon how much of the purchase price/home value is financed with a mortgage loan.
    Mortgage loan insurance is not to be confused with mortgage life insurance which guarantees that your remaining mortgage at the time of your death will not be a burden to your estate.
    How Much Does CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance Cost?
    To obtain CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance, lenders pay an insurance premium. Typically, your lender will pass these costs on to you. Your lender will give you the exact price when you apply for a mortgage.


    The CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance premium is calculated as a percentage of the loan and is based on the size of your down payment. The higher the percentage of the total house price/value that you borrow, the higher percentage you will pay in insurance premiums.


    Remember: without mortgage insurance you may avoid the insurance premium but youll typically pay much higher interest rates and additional administrative fees. At the end of the day, for the vast majority of borrowers, the cost of CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance is more than fully offset by the savings achieved.
