Benefits of Renewing Your RBC Royal Bank Mortgage
- Expert Advice : Renewal time is an opportunity to review your current financial situation - and our goal is to make sure you select the right mortgage options for your particular circumstances. We'll call you before your renewal date to talk about your interest rate preferences, your future plans (home renovations, a move, etc.) and more. You can also call us first or visit your branch whenever you're ready.
- 180-Day Early Renewal Option : Take advantage of our 180-day early renewal option, which allows you to renew early without any penalties1. This could save you in interest costs if rates rise before your regular renewal date.
- 30-Day Renewal Rate Guarantee : When you renew your mortgage at maturity, you are protected from an increase in interest rates, for the interest type and term you selected, in the 30-day period prior to your regularly scheduled renewal date.
- Convenience : Unless you renew early, about three weeks before the end of your current term, you'll receive a renewal form in the mail detailing your payment options and your 30-day rate guarantee. If you have questions, simply call us or visit your local branch.
- No Re-qualification Required : If you're renewing an RBC Royal Bank mortgage, you don't have to re-qualify at renewal time. If your mortgage is held by another financial institution, we can make it easy to switch to RBC Royal Bank2. Find Out More about Benefits of Renewing Your RBC Royal Bank Mortgage

If you're close to renewal, now is a great time to review your financial goals and your plans for the future. You might want to consider the following types of questions:
- Has your financial situation changed since your last renewal?

Renewing for the first time? Have questions?
We'll contact you about 180 days out from your renewal date to discuss your current mortgage needs. (You can also call or visit us.) You can renew early at this point (or any time up to your renewal date), or you can wait and consider your options.
If you renew early, you'll be able to lock in at current interest rates even sooner - which could save you thousands of dollars in interest if rates rise before your renewal date.
About three weeks before your renewal date, we'll send you a renewal letter in the mail. If you have questions about your renewal rate and term, you can give us a call or visit your branch. Otherwise, all you need to do is review your renewal documents, select your renewal option, and sign and return the documents to us before your renewal date.
When you renew your RBC Royal Bank mortgage at maturity, you are protected from an increase in interest rates, for the interest type and term you selected, in the 30-day period prior to your regularly scheduled renewal date. And, if the interest rate changes before your actual mortgage renewal date, you'll automatically receive the lower rate for the term and type you chose.
It's that simple!
