Prepayment Privilege

The right of a borrower to repay a debt in full before it is due. The prepayment privilege is favorable to the borrower because it relieves him/her of the debt, but it deprives the lender of interest that he/she would have received otherwise. However, some lenders offer the prepayment privilege to encourage potential borrowers to borrow from them instead of their competitors.
