Scotiabank STEP Mortgage

My favourite product that Scotiabank offers is the STEP mortgage.

STEP stands for Scotia Total Equity Plan. Here are some of the details of this great product:

  • Your mortgage is approved with a Global Limit. You can borrow back up to your Global Limit at any time without reapplying.
  • This gives you access to separate mortgage components, lines of credit, and credit card options.
  • Need a variable rate mortgage AND a line of credit? No problem! You can split your mortgage up into 3 different terms to suit your needs.
  • This can help manage interest rate and penalty risk.
  • Up to 80% for conventional financing, and up to 95% for CMHC or Genworth high ratio insured financing.
  • A refinance falls under the conventional category, so the maximum available for a refinance is up to 80%.
  • The revolving credit portion may not exceed 65% of the property value.
  • Amortizations of up to 30 years for conventional financing and 25 years for high ratio financing.
  • Available for residents of Canada only.
  • Maximum of 2 borrowers per application.
  • No corporate borrowers.
  • Applicants and the subject property must meet Scotia lending guidelines.
