· Bridge financing assists a customer with the sale and purchase of their residence. When the sale of their current residence closes the loan is paid off with proceeds from the sale.
· The purchase date their new home closes on is 15 days before the closing date of their current residence. The net equity from the current residence is not available on the closing date of the new home. A Bridge Finance Loan provides the customer with short-term assistance to meet this shortfall.
** TD Canada Trust does not provide Bridge Financing to customers who have not committed to take a TD Canada Trust mortgage product.
