Mortgage Renewal Tips

Thinking about mortgage renewal? When the time comes to renew your mortgage, it’s best to be ready with an understanding of the renewal process. Our mortgage renewal tips and information can help you prepare and weigh your options.

What is the mortgage renewal process?

You can renew your TD Mortgage without a prepayment charge starting 120 days (4 months) before maturity. You’ll have a chance to take advantage of competitive interest rates and agree to a new term. Learn how to renew, which can be done easily. Or, depending on your needs, you may wish to consider refinancing instead.

Why renew your mortgage with TD?

There are many great reasons to choose a TD Mortgage. The same is true when renewing one.

  • No need to re-apply

    Renewing a TD Mortgage is fast, secure and easy because there’s no need to re-apply, and no legal or property valuation fees.

  • Competitive rates

    TD can offer you a competitive mortgage interest rate that works for you and your budget.

  • Become mortgage free faster

    At renewal, it may be a good time to speed up your payments or make lump sum payments, helping you reach your financial goals sooner.

  • Take a Payment Pause or Payment Vacation1

    Flexible payment features allow you to skip one monthly payment or, by prepaying in advance, take up to 4 months off from mortgage payments.

When to renew your mortgage

Getting an early start on the renewal process is a good idea. TD may allow you to renew your mortgage up to 120 days (4 months) before maturity without a prepayment charge.

Considerations for renewing your mortgage

  • Decide on a fixed or variable interest rate. Would you prefer a fixed rate mortgage to lock in an interest rate for the term you choose? Knowing the difference between a fixed vs variable interest rate is key as renewal is a chance to make changes.
  • Choose a term open or closed to prepayment. Looking for flexibility to make prepayments without charges? Renewal is a chance to look at whether an open or closed mortgage is the right choice for you.
  • Make changes to your payments. Increasing the frequency of your payments or the amount can save you interest over the long run, helping you reach your financial goals sooner.
  • Look at your financial goals. Are you thinking of a home reno or consolidating other debts with higher interest rates? Then you may want to consider refinancing to a mortgage or a TD Home Equity FlexLine (HELOC).
  • The earlier you renew, the better. Renewing as soon as 120 days before your mortgage loan matures means less worrying about future interest rate fluctuations, earlier interest savings if the new rate is lower than your existing rate and no prepayment charges.
