What is Mortgage Refinancing?

Many BC homeowners have significant equity in their homes; either because they’ve paid down an existing mortgage, enjoyed a significant increase in the value of their home as house prices have risen- or both.

Mortgage Refinancing involves borrowing money- usually in the form of a line of credit- against the current value of your home. Using your home as security, you can arrange to have funds available to help you pay for your children’s education, purchase a second property for an investment or recreation, take that long-delayed dream vacation or simply ease your retirement.

Mortgage Refinancing allows you to use your home to get more out of life.

If you’re considering Mortgage Refinancing and want to learn more, talk to your Notary. We can help you understand and navigate the complete refinancing process.

If you already have a lender-usually a bank or mortgage broker-they will ask you to complete a credit application, often online but sometimes in hard copy. Many lenders can approve your credit application within hours or days.  If you aren’t sure which lender to call, we can refer you to lenders who we work with regularly.

Once your credit application is approved, it’s time to visit your local Notary. We will provide legal advice, complete the necessary documents and return them to your lender to help them make your funds available as quickly and conveniently as possible.


Why do I need a notary public for conveyancing?

What kind of documents are provided for conveyancing?

The process behind a typical conveyance includes a review of liens and other encumbrances. It ensures all conditions have been met, settling all taxes and charges with the appropriate party prior to transfer, confirming financing, and preparing all the documents for final settlement. The documents provided for conveyancing typically include such as the contract of purchase and sale, any addendum, subject removal, mortgage documents, property disclosure statement, strata information, the title and binder insurance, and any other related information to the purchase and sale.

Hear it from our clients

  • “We just purchased our first home and working with Jamie was easily the least stressful part of the whole process! He took the extra time to explain everything thoroughly, provided valuable advice and was absolutely wonderful to work with. Highly recommend!!”

    Hayley L
  • “As a first time home buyer moving from Quebec, I was looking for someone who could make things run professionally, clearly and with a friendly touch. I believe Jamie successfully helped me keep my worries to a minimum during the process by answering all my questions and explaining to me the basics of his legal services. Also, despite the difference between our work schedules, he was always available to meet or help. Thank you very much Mr. Taleb and I’m looking forward doing more business with you again.”
    Andre Mercier
  • “We used Jamie’s help for a purchase of a new condo. Jamie was very helpful and diligent in making sure that the process goes smoothly and everything is on time. He spent a lot of time explaining the details to us and went the extra mile to sort out a number of small items and the same time being very nice and attentive. It was by far much better and much more personal experience than when I used Spagnuolo on my previous home sale. It made a huge difference to me!”
