Pre-Payment Penalties and Privileges

Pre-Payment Penalties & Privileges

Pre-payment penalties and privileges are an important consideration in the borrowing process and can prove costly if not given due attention. Almost all mortgages available in the market require borrowers to pay a penalty if they seek to pay off all or part of their mortgage, before the end of the mortgage term.

Typically, a pre-payment penalty is the higher of three month’s interest or interest rate differential for the remaining term. Interest Rate Differential is the amount of interest between the mortgage interest rate vs. the current interest rate, over the remaining period of the loan term.
