CHANGE TO MINIMUM DOWN PAYMENT RULES
Starting on February 15, CMHC will require a 10 per cent down payment on the portion of any mortgage it insures over $500,000. The five per cent rule remains the same for the portion up to $500,000.
Once the new rules are implemented, someone looking to buy a $700,000 home would need to have a minimum down payment of $45,000, which is what you get when you add five per cent of $500,000 and 10 per cent of the remaining $200,000.
