Ottawa Needs to Step in Due to Mortgage Penalties Still Being Obscure

A recent article in the Globe & Mail suggests this and I have to agree. Since moving from the banking world to the broker one I've learned that not all mortgage penalties are created equally. Also up to 70% of people break their mortgage term prior to it's maturity date. All will face a penalty; some will get a portion or all of it refunded under certain conditions. This is key to getting the lowest total cost of borrowing.
