What is a TD Home Equity FlexLine (HELOC)?

TD Home Equity FlexLine is a way to use your borrower's most powerful borrowing tool – their home. As they pay back the amount they owe, the amount of credit available to your borrower increases until it reaches their credit limit.

TD Home Equity FlexLine vs. a mortgage

TD Home Equity FlexLine (HELOC) and a mortgage are both credit products where your borrower's home acts as collateral. However, here are some key differences:

With a mortgage:
Your borrower gets a loan for a single amount. That amount plus interest must be paid back over time.

With a TD Home Equity FlexLine:
Your borrower gains ongoing access to credit (Revolving portion). As they pay down their outstanding balance, their available credit increases up to their credit limit. They can also add a term portion at any time.
