What are Mortgage loan Insurance premiums?

Financial institutions are required by law to insure all mortgages with a loan to value ratio of less than 80%.

 Mortgage loan insurance premiums are calculated as a percentage of the loan and is based on the size of your down payment. The higher the percentage of the total house price/value that you borrow, the higher percentage you will pay in insurance premiums.
