Regardless of where you live, whether it’s a large city or a small rural town, chances are you’ll need or want to purchase a home at some point in your life. One of the best things about living in Quebec right now is that it has one of the most affordable housing markets in Canada, especially compared to other large provinces like Ontario and British Columbia.

So, what comes to applying for a Mortgage in Quebec, Loans Canada has all the information you need.

Mortgage Insurance Rules

One of the most important things to know before actually trying to secure a mortgage in Quebec is the mortgage insurance rules in Canada. For those unfamiliar, mortgage insurance in Canada is mandatory for those with a down payment between 5% (to purchase a house in Canada you must have at least a 5% down payment) and 19.99%. This insurance is in place to protect lenders in case a borrower defaults on their mortgage. If you have a 20% down payment, or higher, you won’t be required to pay this mortgage insurance.

Read this to learn more about high ratio mortgages and mortgage default insurance.

This mortgage insurance will often cost people around 2-5% of their total mortgage but allows a much greater percentage of the Canadian population to enter the housing market. There are many helpful calculators online that can help you decipher how much mortgage insurance you will likely be responsible for. However, there are some rules and requirements for mortgage insurance that you should know about, such as:

  • The maximum amortization for insured mortgages is 25 years, so a 30 or 35-year mortgage in Quebec cannot be selected if you need mortgage insurance.
  • If the home that you purchase is between $500,000 and $999,999, a higher down payment is required. It remains 5% for the first $500,000 and then 10% of the remaining amount, so be sure to account for that when saving.
  • If you buy a home worth over a million dollars, you will be unable to get mortgage insurance and because of this, you need a 20% down payment for these homes.
  • Mortgage insurance can often be paid off in a lump sum up front or can be added to your recurring mortgage payments.

How to Save For a Down Payment

As you can see, having a down payment is one of the most important factors involved with purchasing a home with a mortgage in Quebec. However, saving money is something a lot of us aren’t too good at. So how are we supposed to save the tens of thousands of dollars often required for a down payment? Well, there are a few things you can do.

  • You need to prioritize. You will need to “tighten your belt” and limit things like eating out, vacationing and other “wants” in order to save the money for your down payment.
  • Downsizing your vehicle can be a good way to get enough money to beef up your down payment. Or, if you and your significant other have multiple vehicles, it could make sense to sell one of them to get more for your down payment. You can also consider a certified pre-owned vehicle.
  • Saving money is hard when you are also dealing with debt. As a result, paying off things like your credit card or car loan before starting to save for a down payment is a good idea. Need some debt management tips? Try reading this.
  • You should take a look at your budget and see where you are spending too much money and look to cut back to give yourself the best chance of successfully saving enough for a solid down payment.

It is a good idea to compare offers from a variety of sources before deciding to select which one you want. While comparing based on the interest rate they offer is common, that is not the only thing you need to consider. Other things to compare include:

  • Term
  • Prepayment penalties
  • Is the mortgage opened or closed?
  • Amortization period
  • Fixed or variable rate?

By looking at all of these different factors, you will be able to decipher which mortgage is best for you.

Here’s what to do if mortgage rates rise while you’re trying to buy a house.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still qualify for a mortgage with bad credit?

If you have bad credit, it will be very difficult to get approved by traditional lenders. To improve your chances, start by reviewing and fixing errors on your credit report. Even if your credit score is still relatively low, there are many mortgage providers who are willing to work with you. Of course, there will be conditions for getting approved with bad credit. You may be asked for a higher down payment or to get someone to co-sign the mortgage. The loan amount will typically be smaller and there will be a higher interest rate as well.

Where can I get a mortgage in Quebec?

If you’re looking to mortgage a new home, you’ll most typically deal with a bank, credit union, or a caisse populaire. However, if you don’t qualify with these institutions or want to explore other options, then consider a mortgage, trust, insurance, or loan company. Each type of provider offers a variety of services that cater to different situations. Enlisting the help of a licensed mortgage broker can make exploring all those options a lot easier. They will work to find you a tailored solution and don’t charge any fees until you get your mortgage approval.

What are prepayment penalties and privileges?

Paying off your mortgage quicker can help you save on interest. If you have an open mortgage, then you can pay it off early to save on interest with no penalty of any kind. However, if you have a closed mortgage, making early payments or paying it off completely can cost you thousands of dollars in prepayment penalties. Such penalties also apply when you break your contract to transfer to another lender or if you sell your home. Some contracts allow for a prepayment privilege. This lets you make extra payments towards your mortgage to save on interest. How the prepayment privilege works and the amount you can prepay will vary based on the lender.
