Switching Lenders After The Rule Changes

MortgagesSo far, the most popular question we’ve seen following Friday’s mortgage rule changes is:

Can I switch lenders if my loan-to-value is over 85% and my amortization is over 30 years?

The answer is yes, as long as your amortization, mortgage amount, and LTV don’t increase.

Even if you got a 40-year amortization (or 100% financing) pre-2009, you can still switch lenders if you qualify.

That said, not all lenders will accept transfers on amortizations over 30-35 years (or LTVs over 90-95%), so check with your mortgage adviser to find out who does.
