Mortgage Insurance : Laurentienne Bank

User our online calculator to compare Laurentienne Bank's offer. Shopping for mortgage insurance has never been simpler!

There are some insurance policies that take into account your marital status. So, for example, if you get a policy with the Laurentian Bank, insurance will terminate automatically when the spouses are divorced, legally separated, or their marriage ends for one reason or another.

You shouldn’t have to spend time dealing with your insurance problems when you need todevote all of your energy to dealing with marital problems. This is exactly why you should get individual insurance. Signing up with InfoPrimes ensures that you will be protected regardless of your marital status.

In addition, like all insurance policies obtained mortgages under a group contract, you will have to pay applicable taxes, which are 9% in Quebec and 8% in Ontario. With the individual insurance of persons, the tax does not apply, because savings are still quite important.

Is mortgage insurance mandatory ?

No. According to Article 439 of the Act respecting the distribution of financial products and services :

“A distributor may not require the entering into of a subordinate contractual obligation for the customer to enter into a contract of insurance with the specified insurer. He may not exercise undue pressure on the client or use fraudulent tactics to induce him to purchase a financial product or service.”

Note that, under certain circumstances, financial institutions may ask you to obtain mortgage life insurance before they approve a loan. However, they cannot force you to obtain that insurance from their financial institution. See Article 22.

If your loan is for commercial or rental property and you have written confirmation which confirms that this life insurance (not applicable to disability) is required for acceptance of the loan, your premiums will be tax deductible under certain conditions. See Article 20-1 E.2.

Understanding mortgage insurance from Laurentian Bank

This table will show you that it is clearly advantageous to take out mortgage insurance as an individual rather than with a group policy, like that offered by most banking institutions. You will find, for example, that in the event of simultaneous death where several members are insured, that one of the two policies will only pay out the amount of the mortgage, while the other will pay the full amount insured at the time of signing.

Individual insurance is much more flexible than group insurance. In addition, the individual holds all of the power, unlike group insurance where it is the lending institution that gets to make all of the decisions.

Additionally, the scope of protection is much greater with an individual insurance policy, such as that offered by InfoPrimes, than the protection provided by the major banks’ insurance.
