Early Repayment Charge

A financial penalty for repaying part or all of the mortgage before an agreed date. It is often applied to fixed, discounted, tracker, capped and cash-back mortgages. Quite simply, the lender agrees to offer what it believes is an exceptional package of benefits, providing the borrower agrees to keep the mortgage with them for an agreed length of time.
