Mortgage Prepayment Penalties

Fixed Rate Mortgage Penalty Interest Rate

For fixed-rate mortgages, lenders usually use the greater of three months of interest or an interest rate differential (IRD). Each lender has their own IRD calculation. The interest rate that they use for their IRD is usually based on either their current advertised mortgage rates or their posted rates, which can often be much higher.

Variable Rate Mortgage Penalty Interest Rate

Most lenders determine the mortgage break penalty for a variable rate mortgage by calculating three months of interest. The interest rate that they use can depend from lender to lender, but is usually either your current mortgage interest rate or the lender's prime rate.
