CHIP Mortgages

Smart Start Management and consulting

If you are a homeowner in British Columbia who is aged 55 or older, a CHIP (Canadian Home Income Plan) mortgage may be the solution you need to access the equity in your home while continuing to live in it. Here are some of the qualifications and benefits of CHIP mortgages in British Columbia:


  1. Age: To qualify for a CHIP mortgage, you must be aged 55 or older.

  2. Home equity: You must have significant equity built up in your home in order to be eligible for a CHIP mortgage. The amount you can borrow will depend on the value of your home and the amount of equity you have.

  3. Property type: Most types of residential properties, including single-family homes, townhouses, and condos, are eligible for CHIP mortgages. However, some types of properties, such as mobile homes or homes on leased land, may not be eligible.


  1. Access to home equity: With a CHIP mortgage, you can access the equity in your home without having to sell it or move out. You can use the funds for whatever you need, such as home renovations, travel, or healthcare expenses.

  2. No monthly payments: Unlike traditional mortgages, CHIP mortgages do not require monthly payments. Instead, the interest on the loan is added to the principal and repaid when the home is sold or the borrower passes away.

  3. Flexibility: With a CHIP mortgage, you can choose to receive the funds in a lump sum, as regular payments, or a combination of both. This can provide flexibility in how you use the funds and manage your finances.
