Financing and Payment Options

We offer your clients maximum value and flexibility through a variety of financing and payment options.

Understanding Mortgage Security

For information concerning the differences between the types of security required by a bank for a collateral charge mortgage and a conventional or standard charge mortgage (including transferring or assigning the mortgage security to a new lender, borrowing additional funds and discharging the mortgage security), please visit the Canadian Bankers Association.

Switch Program

For your clients who have a residential first mortgage with another lender, we will work with you to transfer their existing mortgage balance to us at no additional cost. Transfer fees (appraisal and legal) will be paid by B2B Bank for switches of a minimum of $75,000, with at least a 5 year term. Based on owner-occupied properties up to 2 units. 

Of course, we will transfer a mortgage for any of your clients who request a term of less than five years or an amount that's under $75,000 but in these instances, the client must pay all legal and appraisal costs.

Bridge financing

We offer bridge financing for up to 30 days for approved clients. (Issued by Laurentian Bank of Canada)

Portable mortgage

Your client can transfer, or port, their current B2B Bank mortgage rate, loan balance and maturity date to their new home.¹

Assumable mortgage

Qualified buyers can take over, or assume, the mortgage of an existing client.

Payment Options

Payment frequency options

Mortgage payments can be made weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. These payments are automatically debited from your client's account at the financial institution of their choice.

Accelerated mortgage payments

Choosing this feature can reduce the amortization period and save your client thousands of dollars in interest costs. This feature applies to weekly and bi-weekly payment frequencies. This option is not available for variable rate mortgages with variable payments.

15/15 prepayment privileges

Once each calendar year, at any time, and free of charge, your client can:

  • Increase mortgage payments (principal and interest) by up to 15% over current payments.²
  • Prepay up to 15% of the original mortgage principal.²

¹Certain conditions apply. ²This prepayment privilege is non-cumulative and is available after the first anniversary of the mortgage. Not available for variable rate mortgages with variable payments.
