How Much Does a Reverse Mortgage Cost?
Reverse mortgages are commonly mistaken for charging a lot of upfront costs. In reality, the CHIP Reverse Mortgage has many of the same costs as a traditional mortgage in Canada such as an appraisal fee, legal fees and an administrative fee. And while our rates are a little higher than a traditional mortgage, the CHIP Reverse Mortgage provides homeowners with tax-free cash upfront without the requirement of monthly mortgage payments!
