 Mortgage Insurance Rebates

Many New Home buyers require Home Owner’s Mortgage Insurance to be able to obtain financing for their purchase.
But most people are unaware of the fact they are eligible for up to a 25% reduction in the mortgage fees for purchasing an Energy-Efficient New home, or for improving the energy efficiency of an older home.
These savings are often referred to as “Green Mortgages”

On a $750,000 purchase 5% down, the CMHC premium is $19,594
A 25% discount is $4898

For a “New-Build Home” the criteria is typically a verification that the home exceeds the energy efficiency of a “code-built” home by a specified amount. A single Energy Assessment is required, which will verify if the home will qualify.

For an Existing Home, upgrades are required to show the home has been made more energy efficient- using either a percentage factor, or by a specific GigaJoule (GJ) amount. (GJ is a measure of energy- 1 GJ equals approximately 27 litre of fuel oil, 39 litres of propane, 25 cubic meters of Natural Gas) 

This will require 2 energy assessments- a pre retrofit & a post retrofit assessment.

**Upgrades made to the home may also qualify for the Enbridge HER+ Rebate program
