What are early repayment fees?

Early repayment fees, often known as prepayment penalties, are charges levied by some lenders on borrowers who pay off all or part of their loans ahead of the agreed schedule. These fees are detailed in the loan contracts and are permitted on certain loan types like personal loans, mortgages, investment property advances, and lines of credit.
In some cases, these penalties may not apply if you make additional repayments on your loan in small amounts at a time. Many early repayment terms contain agreements allowing borrowers to pay off a certain portion of their loan without incurring a fee. Additionally, the calculation of this fee typically factors in the overall repayment sum, interest rates, and what you’ve already paid.
