Some important facts about converting

You can choose to convert from an adjustable to fixed rate mortgage at any time during your mortgage term. There is no fee involved. Other important facts to know include:

  • Converting to a fixed rate mortgage means that your payments will no longer fluctuate according to changes in the prime rate. They will remain the same until the end of your term.
  • You do not lock into your adjustable rate - instead you convert to a fixed rate.
  • The duration of your new fixed rate term is determined based on the amount of time you already completed in your adjustable rate term (equal to or greater than five years). For example, if you signed for a 5-year adjustable rate mortgage term and had it for two years, you can lock in for three or more years at a fixed rate.
  • You will see changes in your payments. Estimate your new payment using the Payment Calculator.
  • You will see changes to your maturity date.
  • Your payment privileges will change. Any ongoing privileges will cease to apply, and you will need to proactively request new privileges based on your new payment amount.
  • You cannot convert back from a fixed rate to an adjustable rate mortgage.
