Can I pay off my loan early? Are there prepayment penalties?
If you choose to pay off your 504 loan early, the duration of the prepayment penalty depends on the term of the loan. Typically, 504 loans are 20-year loans, which carry a 10-year prepayment penalty. The amount of the penalty depends on the debenture rate assigned to your loan. For instance, if the debenture rate was 2.5%, it would decline 10% every year for ten years. After 10 years there would no longer be a prepayment penalty.
In addition to the prepayment penalty, interest and servicing fees (not the CDC servicing fee), through the next semi-annual debenture date are included in the payoff. The debenture dates are based on the funding date of your loan. Our Servicing Department can walk you through the details.
