Loan foreclosure is the total repayment of the balance loan amount in one single payment instead of paying it back in multiple EMIs (Equated Monthly Instalments). Unlike in a loan top-up, where one increases the existing loan amount. In a foreclosure, borrowers arrange for a lump sum amount, thereby becoming financially debt-free and saving future interest. Prepayment of loans can have a positive impact on the credit score and reputation of the borrower. Sometimes, for secured loans foreclosure also refers to the act of lenders recovering the amount owed to them on defaulted loans by taking ownership of pledged assets and selling the mortgaged property. This is why foreclosure, when initiated by the borrower, is more commonly referred to as prepayment or pre-closure.
If one wishes to foreclose before the end of the loan tenure, they have to keep in mind foreclosure charges. These are charged to compensate for the lost interest income due to the pre-closure. Below are foreclosure charges for Fullerton India’s personal loans:
