Answer for "What are prepayment penalties?"

A penalty fee charged for paying off a mortgage early, thus allowing banks to still make money off of the loan in the event that you inherit a small fortune. Most loans these days do not have prepayment penalties - and if they do, they are only applicable for the first few years of the loan.
