Step by step
When you switch your mortgage to HSBC, you may be able to bring your current amortization with you.
You have the opportunity to negotiate a new mortgage with a new amortization period. You also have the choice of flexible terms and a host of pre-payment options4 that may help you become mortgage-free faster.
Managing fees and charges
Switching your mortgage before the end of your current term may result in penalties or fees. Sometimes, these costs are worth the expense if you are switching for a more competitive interest rate. Other times, it’s more advantageous to wait for your current term to expire.
If your mortgage is up for renewal any time in the next six months, now is a great time to start working on your next move.

4 How much you can prepay depends upon the type of mortgage you have. If you hold an open mortgage and your installment payments are up to date, you can pay some or all of your mortgage loan at any time without penalty. If you hold a Variable Closed mortgage, during the first three years if your installment payments are up to date OR if you hold a Fixed Closed mortgage and your installment payments are up to date, you may make three types of extra payments without penalty: 1) On any anniversary date of the mortgage loan, you may make a lump sum payment up to 20% of the original principal amount, minimum of $100; 2) Along with any installment payment, you may make an extra payment in the same amount as your installment payment; 3) Once a year, you may increase your installment payment up to 20% for 12 months. The total extra and increased payments in a year cannot be more than 20% of the original principle amount. If you hold a Variable Closed mortgage after the first three years, your mortgage becomes an open term where you may pay some or all of your mortgage loan without penalty.
