RRSP Mortgages

Be your own bank by borrowing from your RRSPs

RRSP mortgagesAn RRSP Mortgage or a Registered Retirement Savings Plan is taken out between a lender and the RRSP holder, you. This money, designed to accumulate into a retirement saving account, can be used as a source to borrow money from, should you require an advancement of these funds to invest in property.

You have the option to leverage your RRSP in the following three ways:

Home Buyers Plan

The Home Buyers Plan is designed for first time home buyers, or those that have, or are, assisting persons with a disability; to help in covering expenses such as down payment, closing costs, property improvements, etc.

Personal RRSP Mortgage

This is the least used RRSP option in the mortgage industry, mostly because few borrowers know it exists, and very few RRSP administrators will administer this type of mortgage. However, a Personal RRSP Mortgage can work for people looking to borrow money to add income from their personal residence, such as adding a rental suite or solar panel system.

Arms Length Mortgage

Arms Length Mortgages refer to cases where an investor with an RRSP chooses to use mortgages as their investment strategy – by essentially becoming the bank. They can then choose which criteria they want to see before deciding to lend.

Eligibility

Like some other mortgaging options, you can use your RRSP funds to renovate your home and add further value to it, or you can invest or consolidate debt. Factors to determine your eligibility include what type of property you’re investing in, and the loan to value (LTV), which is the property’s value, deducted from the mortgage‘s remaining balance.
