Does TD Bank Offer the Best Mortgage Rates?


With extensive experience working with TD Bank mortgages, we have seen them often come through as the most competitive big bank mortgage lenders with Ontario’s best rates. Moreover, we have found it easier to work with TD Bank to obtain the best mortgage rates. However, determining the best rates depends on an individual’s unique situation and needs. While TD Bank’s Ontario mortgage rates are often competitive, the level of competitiveness often rests on additional factors such as: 

Size of the mortgage – TD Bank may offer existing clients discounts and special offers on loans and mortgages.

How much time until closing – The Bank may be able to price their mortgage slightly lower for faster closings.

Assets and creditworthiness – To determine TD mortgage rates, the bank can offer the lowest rate option to clients with secure employment, liquid assets, and highly favourable credit scores. The lowered risk of insolvency and the high probability of repayment translates to the bank’s savings. This lower risk for the bank is passed on to the client as a lower and more favourable mortgage rate.

Unique TD Mortgage Features and Flexibilities


TD Bank’s mortgage products provide many options, from competitive rates to unique features catering to a wide range of preferences and needs. The flexibility in prepayments, payment increases, and other tailored solutions make TD Bank’s mortgage products an excellent choice for borrowers. The borrower must be in good standing with the bank to take advantage of extra features. 

 15% Lump Sum Prepayment/ Extra Payment

Lump sum payments allow clients to pay off their mortgages faster without any penalty. By making up to 15% lump sum pre-payment, the client reduces the mortgage principal significantly while saving substantial amounts of interest over the life of the mortgage. The 15% is based on the original borrowing amount and is not limited to one or two times per year. If there are 12 or 26 mortgage payments in a year, the pre payment can be made on any or all of these occasions as long as it doesn’t exceed 15% of the original mortgage approval amount in that year. 

If the pre payment is exceeded, standard penalties will begin to apply.

15% Increase in Payment

15% increases in mortgage payment are permitted. This customized option empowers clients to control or gradually increase the regular payment to align with salary increases throughout the life of the mortgage.By increasing the monthly regular mortgage payment, the client reduces the principal owing and pays off the mortgage more quickly overtime.

Double Up Payment (100% payment increase)

By doubling up mortgage payments from time to time, the repayment process is accelerated, reducing the mortgage balance and increasing the amount of equity much faster.

Home Equity Line of Credit – HELOC

A home equity line of credit provides clients with available equity where funds can be used instead of high interest credit card, and can be paid back any time. This is a highly flexible borrowing option can be used to meet various financial needs.

Skip-a-Payment

The skip-a-payment option can be used during unexpected and temporary financial situations. Skipping a mortgage payment can help when the borrower faces an unexpected expense or a loss of income.

Fixed Rate Mortgages

Fixed rate mortgages remain the same throughout the term and do not fluctuate. TD offers 1 to 10 year fixed terms. A range of terms available allows clients to align the term to their financial goals. Fixed rate mortgages are available for purchases, renewals and refinances. Speak with a TD branch representative or mortgage broker and you’ll be able to access competitive TD mortgage rates.

Variable Rate Mortgages

TD’s variable rate mortgages fluctuate with the Bank of Canada‘s prime interest rate. If there is an increase to the variable rate borrowers will notice the variable rate payment does not always increase until the mortgage trigger rate is met. 

Clients who wish to convert from a variable to a fixed term are provided with this flexible conversion option if the mortgage is in good standing. Converting allows clients to maintain a static principal and interest payment in the event that rates increase with the Bank of Canada’s prime rate.
