Dueonsale Clause 2


Definition of "Due-on-Sale Clause"

A provision of a loan contract stipulating that if the property is sold the loan balance must be repaid. A mortgage containing a due-on-sale clause is not assumable. This prevents a home seller from transferring responsibility for an existing loan to the buyer when the interest rate on the old loan is below the current market.
