Did you know that La Capitale offers a number of different loan options? Discover our products and attractive rates!
Fixed Rate Mortgage
If you're the kind of person who likes to plan ahead and avoid unpleasant financial surprises, take out a fixed rate mortgage and enjoy a fixed interest rate for the duration of the term you select. That way, you know the amount of your payments in advance and can rest easy.
3-12 Month Mortgage (5 year term at an interest rate that is adjusted every 3 or 12 months)
- Rate is automatically adjusted every 3 or 12 months over 5 years
- Attractive interest rate during the initial period
- 0.40% reduction on interest rates at time of adjustment:
- 3 months: interes rate less 0.40%
- 12 months: Basic mortgage interest rate less 0.40%
A 3 or 12 month mortgage can be converted to a closed fixed term that is equal to or longer than the remainder of the initial 5 year term. Plus, you can get a 0.40% “conversion discount” on the posted basic rate of the fixed term you selected.
Conversion terms and conditions:
- 3 months: Convertible at any time at no charge
- 12 months: No charge at time of rate adjustment
HBP LOAN (Home Buyer's Plan)
Dreaming of becoming a homeowner but don't have enough for a down payment? No problem! The HBP (Home Buyer's Plan) can help you become a homeowner by allowing you to withdraw up to $25,000 from your RRSP tax free.
If you don't have the entire $25,000 amount, there is another avenue available to you if you haven't been able to fully contribute to your RRSP and have accumulated allowable contributions since 1991. You can turn those thousands of dollars into considerable tax savings by borrowing the amount corresponding to your unused allowable contributions to attain $25,000 and depositing it into your RRSP. To repay the loan, you withdraw the money via the HBP with no tax deducted at source. Because this sum is considered an RRSP contribution, you can deduct it from your taxable income and use the resulting tax refund to increase your down payment.
Want to invest more money in your RRSP without tightening your belt? La Capitale makes it easy to quickly access the money you may need to increase your retirement capital with RRSP loans.
