The floor clause is a significant concern for many homeowners, limiting the reduction of monthly payments in a variable interest type mortgage even when market interest rates fall below a certain threshold. At KIPOS LEGAL, we work to ensure that your interests are fairly represented in every aspect of the mortgage process.
