Canadian Real Estate/Removing Parent From Title


Our current mortgage has my wife's parents on with us as co-owners.  We are in the process of refinancing and have been approved for a new mortgage in our own names.  Should we expect any extra legal fees to remove her parents from the title or will the normal closing costs cover this?

Thanks for your time.

You should not have to pay any extra fees other than the ones that you already agreed to in the original agreement.  You should contact the bank you got the mortgage from to be sure.  It is also possible that your in-laws are not on title and only co-signers/guarantors on the mortgage.

Usually when you refinance your mortgage the bank does not charge any penalties as long as you stay with them.

Best Regards
