Frequently Asked Questions

Curious to learn more? We love that about you.

Which areas you do you lend in?

+

Currently, Fraction lends in British Columbia and Ontario. In Ontario, if you don't have an existing mortgage broker, Fraction will refer your inquiry to a registered third-party mortgage brokerage during the process.

What are the costs associated with Fraction?

+

Fraction uses third-party appraisers and inspectors and these costs are borne by you. In addition, we require you to get independent legal advice and there are conveyancing and title insurance costs. Fraction charges a fee of 2.5% of the initial loan amount.

I have multiple homes. Can I use Fraction for all of them?

+

Yes you can - Fraction can lend up to $2M to a single person, with a maximum of $1.5M per property.

Is this like a timeshare?

+

No, not in the slightest. The word 'fraction' may remind you of timeshares, but we can assure you that Fraction is simply a way to access your home equity on fairer terms. You are not sharing your home or equity with anyone else, it’s all yours, all the time.

How will I receive my money?

+

Once all documents are signed and the charge is put on title, Fraction puts the money right into your bank account.

Do I have to consult Fraction if I want to renovate?

+

No. You are free to spend your tax-free cash as you please.

What happens during a recession?

+

With Fraction, you’re protected against market slumps. The interest rate with Fraction will drop to a bare minimum, and since there are no payments, you are safe from income-related issues that might occur during a recession. You are also protected against interest rates rising, since your Fraction interest rate is based on your home, not a Prime Rate.

Can this help me buy a home?

+

Yes, if you have 60% down on a home, you can work with Fraction to purchase the home with no monthly payments

What if I want full ownership again?

+

You can buy out Fraction at any time you want.

If there are no monthly payments, when do I pay Fraction?

+

You decide. Fraction will receive payment when you sell the home or choose to payout Fraction.

What if the homeowner passes away?

+

If you are a couple and your spouse passes away, Fraction will work with you to ensure you can stay in your home.

What if I already have a mortgage?

+

It depends. If you have an existing mortgage, you must have enough built up equity in your home to qualify for Fraction. We do require that you pay off your existing mortgage to work with us (you can use Fraction to pay off your existing mortgage). Luckily, seeing if you qualify is easy by applying for Fraction.

What happens when I want to sell?

+

You can sell whenever you want. You would simply pay the remaining balance with Fraction after the sale, like any other mortgage or HELOC.

Who owns the home?

+

You do. You retain ownership with Fraction, just like a regular mortgage or HELOC.

I have multiple homes. Can I use Fraction for all of them?

+

Yes you can - Fraction can lend up to $2M to a single person, with a maximum of $1.5M per property.
