Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

Equitable Bank's Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is designed to help you manage your finances. Our HELOC gives you flexible access to your funds any time to help you finance large purchases, home renovations or unexpected home repairs. Or it may simply be your rainy day fund.

Whatever the occasion, Equitable Bank is here for you.

Lines of Credit

Equitable Bank's HELOC has a number of options for anyone looking to unlock equity in their residential property.

  • Need a mortgage and a HELOC? Combine your first mortgage and HELOC at the same time with Equitable Bank. Or you can apply for a HELOC if you have an existing Equitable Bank mortgage.
  • Have a mortgage elsewhere? You can use funds from your Equitable Bank HELOC to pay out your existing mortgage.
  • Have you paid off your home? The Equitable Bank HELOC is available at any time if you are mortgage-free.

Do you need an easy way to access your funds? Your HELOC comes with an Equitable Bank Visa* Gold Access Card (Access Card) and personalized HELOC cheques to make accessing your funds convenient.

If you are interested in the Equitable Bank HELOC, please contact a professional mortgage broker to get started.
