If you have a renewal coming up:
Mortgage amount owing at maturity (or current mortgage amount if unknown)
Approximate market value
Original purchase date (month and year)
Did you pay an insurance premium such as CMHC when you purchased the home? (meaning you had less than 20% down payment)
Did you refinance your mortgage since you owned your home? If so, what was the year and month when you did the refinance?
Do you have a second component such as a HELOC attached to your mortgage?
Is this your primary residence or a rental property?
If purchasing, not quite as much info is required:
Down payment amount (or percentage)
Primary residence or rental property
This is all information that is needed in order to quote you an accurate rate.
That being said, the 3 year variable is not a standard product and very few lenders offer it, but there are some good 3 year variable rates right now....for most situations.
