Mortgage Insurance : RBC

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

If your family is going through difficult times, it is reassuring to know that your insurance company will not jump ship.

However, some insurance contracts contain clauses that provide for the removal of your protection in the event a financial setback. For instance, mortgage loan insurance from the Royal Bank will automatically terminate on the date that you file a petition for bankruptcy or a petition for bankruptcy is filed against you. Far from protecting your family in the most challenging times, this clause you’re your protection.

With InfoPrimes, the act of filing a bankruptcy petition will not affect your insurance policy. Signing up for an individual policy gives you the benefits and flexibility that you cannot get from most banking institutions, who have group contracts. The bank owns the insurance policy and the premium, so that in case of death or disability, it can be used to pay for the mortgage, and nothing else.

Compare prices between Royal Bank and InfoPrimes

To help you better plan your purchase and all of the related fees, InfoPrimes offers a mortgage insurance calculator. You can compare the cost of InfoPrimes’ insurance, as opposed to the insurance from many other banks, including RBC.

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 RBC Bank

Note that the eligibility rules are quite strict with group insurance. It is important to complete the insurability report and return it to the financial institution within 30 days after its signing. You must monitor yourself. With InfoPrimes, there are no worries, as the company and your representative will take care of you. You can rest easy.

It is also important to note that it is impossible to switch mortgage lenders with the contract with your financial institution. As your age changes, your insurability may change as well. If you decide to change to a new lender because it offers better conditions or lower interest rates, you will have to change insurers, which could result in a change in the premium and the terms of your policy. These constraints do not exist with InfoPrimes, as you keep your insurance policy regardless of the lending institution.
