Regardless of mortgage rates, if a down payment is less than 20% of the home or property value, mortgage insurance is mandatory in Kelowna (and across Canada). Mortgages have built-in insurance premiums, so, therefore, the clients do not pay “out of pocket” for this expense. For mortgage lenders, a down payment of this size is more of a risk, so the mortgage insurance premium acts like a guarantee in the event of a default on the loan.
