Zero loan, PF, prepayment option
and foreclosure charges from Skoda Finance are also part of the scheme.
It should be noted, however, that since expected term extensions are not considered for purposes of CECL, there could be an incentive to offer extremely short-term instruments with extension options cancelable by the lender rather than longer-term instruments with prepayment options
. For instance, a one-year loan with an annual lender's extension option going out five years could be assessed with a lower lifetime loss compared to a five-year loan with a prepayment option
TAH Express also offers a "step-down" prepayment option
, which provides more flexibility in the prepayment of these smaller loans.
In some cases, the issuer might even have the right to pay back a bond at any time, i.e., the bond contains an American Style Prepayment Option

In addition, Fannie Mae recently enhanced their adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) loans offering a variable rate/flexible prepayment option
called Fannie Mae ARM 7-6.
We first isolate variables to capture the prepayment option
. To approximate the prepayment option
, we follow the approach outlined in Calhoun and Deng (2002) and construct an auto loan prepayment premium that is defined as [PPOption.sub.t-6] = ([r.sub.ct-6]- [r.sub.mt-6])/([r.sub.mt-6]), where [r.sub.ct-6] is the coupon rate on the existing auto loan and [r.sub.mt-6] is the three-year Treasury note rate.
But a prepayment option
, bolstered by a recent IRS Private Letter Ruling, may be an attractive alternative to such plans--and avoid gift taxes altogether.
Accordingly, the prepayment option
cost must be better reflected in current MSR multiples.

Arm's-length provisions can be negotiated so that the prepayment option
benefits both parties.
