Contact information, fees & rates

  • Solicitor news & contact information

    As part of our ongoing mission to provide clients with prompt, efficient service at competitive rates, Bridgewater Bank has implemented a significantly enhanced mortgage instruction and funding process.

    While the mortgage commitment letter and the statement of disclosure will continue to be emailed or faxed, the standard instructions and remaining forms are now available online allowing solicitors to conveniently download them as required.

    Our new Request for Funds allows for funding with gap insurance (Title Insurance). We also require all of the solicitor’s undertaking documentation up front.

    To ensure timely funding of your file, please return all documentation to us at least three business days prior to scheduled closing.

    For specific questions, please contact the funder assigned to your file. For all other inquiries, email solicitordocs@bridgewaterbank.ca. Please note that we accept digital copies of all documents.

    If your file has not yet been instructed, or for general inquiries, please contact Linda Bulmer, Manager, Mortgage Operations at 1.403.410.1384 or email lbulmer@bridgewaterbank.ca.
