If you are ending your mortgage before the end of the mortgage term,
there may be fees and/or penalties owed from you to the lender. To end
a variable mortgage, lenders typically charge 3 months of interest plus a penalty. To end a fixed mortgage, the penalty can be quite steep. It's
always best to speak to your lender to find out exactly how much the penalty is, and if it ends up being significant, it may be worthwhile to see if your lender
will allow you to transfer the mortgage to a new property for a smaller fee.
