An acceleration clause is a contract provision, sometimes hidden in fine print, that grants a lender the right to demand (or recall) the full repayment of the entire outstanding loan balance of a home loan in the event that the borrower is in breach of one or more of the stipulated clauses.
This clause is almost always present in modern mortgage contracts.
Common clauses include:
- Sale of property
- Delinquency and defaults
- False declarations
While this is a clause that can look intimidating to borrowers, lenders seldom exercise it without fair justification.
