Definition: Early Redemption Charge


Quick Summary of Early Redemption Charge


A charge made by the mortgage lender if the borrower terminates a mortgage in advance of the terms of that particular mortgage. ERCs are generally imposed on fixed or discounted mortgages offering a relatively cheap deal for an initial period. They usually run only until the end of the initial cheap deal period, though some mortgages impose extended redemption penalties which continue even though the borrower has moved back onto the lender’s standard variable rate.
