ING now has the evil & dirty collateral mortgage – like TD and RBC
Also see the article from earlier this year about TD and RBC offering the collateral mortgage – which is an “IOU” for every single $ you have. (http://blog.markherman.ca/2011/05/09/why-you-do-not-want-a-collateral-mortgage-from-td-or-rbc/ ) Essentially YOU give them the right to sue YOU into bankruptcy if they need to repo your house. All other standard mortgages in Alberta only allow the bank to take the house back. Another reason to use a broker that knows what they are doing. Do you really want to put it all on the line for no reason?
ING Direct goes collateral charge
ING Direct will move this month to register all new mortgages as collateral charge, following on the heels of TD and other lenders.
The change is set to take effect on Dec. 10, 2011, with the bank to make a formal announcement to the broker channel later this week.
