interest-only loan(redirected from Interest only loan)
A non-amortized loan. During the payment period of interest-only loans, one only pays on the interest that accumulates but not on the principal. At the end of the loan's term, the entire principal is due. An example is an interest-only mortgage, in which one makes interest payments for the term of the mortgage and then refinances in order to pay the principal at maturity.
A loan on which one pays periodic interest payments without any reduction in principal,and the entire principal balance is due and payable upon maturity of the note.
