Process and Draw Mortgage Explained

The Process and Draw Mortgage pays out funds in phases over the duration of the construction process. The money is usually paid in four stages with the last amount paid on completion. Inspections will take place after each of the phases before the lender will pay the construction company.

This is a good option if you are building your own home and require incremental inflows of funds. Whilst the advantages of this type of mortgage are obvious, there are also disadvantages.

  • You will have to pay for four appraisals.
  • You start to will pay interest as soon as the first payment is made, long before you have taken occupation of the premises.
  • You will not be permitted to change this mortgage agreement after the initial payment is made.
  • If the equity on the lot and other real estate does not cover the required loan you may have to finance the first phase yourself.

Completion Mortgage Explained

The Completion Mortgage only pays out once the construction has been completed. This type of mortgage is initiated by contract, normally with a small down payment. You may be permitted to pay the down payment in instalments.

Because it pays out on completion, you will be permitted to make changes to the contract up to thirty days before completion. This could come in handy because you may want to make changes to the plans that may require additional funding.

The danger of the completion mortgage is that things can change over time and something like a loss of income can result in the mortgage agreement being withdrawn. On the positive side lenders normally push builders to complete the work within one hundred and twenty days, and this type of mortgage is easier to obtain than the Process and Draw Mortgage as it carries less risk.

Financing your Mississauga Construction over the Longer Term

Construction Mortgages can be converted to a regular long-term mortgage after the construction is complete or the original contract may combine the two in a Construction to Permanent Loan. The latter ensures that you have only one closing cost.

Obtaining a mortgage for your Mississauga construction project can be trickier than for an existing home. Normally the completion mortgage is the easier route to go because the lenders have less risk since payment is only made once construction is complete.

If you are applying for a Process and Draw Mortgage you may have time restrictions placed on the project and you may not be free to choose your own builder.

Your Mortgage Broker in Mississauga will ensure that your mortgage application is smoothly and efficiently accomplished so that you get the mortgage that best suits your needs and that springs no nasty surprises.


I've worked with mortgage brokers before and have had some issues, so wasn’t sure if i wanted to go to a bank or a broker again. I ended up finding Leon and his team and the reviews seemed really positive, so i decided to just give them a call and see what they offer. Leon explained everything over the phone and was able to adjust to my schedule for a meeting. We ended up going over everything from start to finish, I explained my situation and he recommended a mortgage for me. He explained how it would save me money and how he would guide me step by step. At any point during the process he was literally just a phone call away and was very responsive. The best experience I’ve ever had with my mortgage. Gonna stick with Leon and his team from now on.

I found Leon a few months ago when we were looking to secure a mortgage for our new home. I read the reviews and they all seemed positive, so I gave him a call. Leon and his team honestly live up to their reputation, they answer all their calls, respond to emails within the hour and have the best rates I’ve seen. They know everything about the market and answer every question I have. Got a great rate and the customer service was outstanding. Would recommend to anyone, 5 stars

Most of my income is in dividends so my mortgage approval turned out to be a lot more complicated than normal. Leon guided me step by step through the whole process. He explained everything, was very patient and answered any questions i had. A week before the closing the lender asked for some additional documents and Leon was just a phone call away and was able to get everything together right away. Great service and great team.

Working with Leon has honestly been amazing. He managed to find a bunch of properties at a great price. We told him what we were looking for and our budget, he was able to find properties that we were able to renovate and re market. It has honestly been a pleasure working with him.
