Meridian Mortgage Product Rates

Mortgage rates are regularly and consistently updated on the Meridian website. Consult the website for exact rates.
Meridian Mortgage Products
Meridian mortgage products come with desirable mortgage features that apply to all their products. Certain products may have specific requirements or caveats relating to these features and you should check the individual product for more information.
Meridian mortgage products provide the following features:
- 20/20 Prepayment privileges: Prepay 20% of the loan amount, increase payments by 20% or both per year.
- Skip-a-payment: You can ask for permission to skip a monthly payment. Conditions apply.
- Flexible schedule: You can choose from multiple payment schedules such as monthly, bi-monthly, weekly, and bi-weekly.
- Mortgage protection: A Group Mortgage Protection (GMP) is a monthly premium that protects you against the event that you become unable to continue your payments.
Aside from a basic fixed mortgage that starts at the lowest rate available, these are Meridian’s other main products:
- The Flex-Equity Mortgage.
This product combines a regular mortgage with a Home Equity Line of Credit. You can use the equity in your home freed up by the line of credit to undertake renovations, etc. while paying down your mortgage.
- The Family + Friends Mortgage.
This product allows people that are not in a traditional two-income family to pool together resources to apply for a mortgage. Up to four people can share the mortgage. It can be applied to any Meridian mortgage.
For a full list of products, sign up on the Meridian website and contact a representative. Variable/fixed and open/closed options are available for most mortgage options with varying terms and rates.
