Fixed Rate Early Repayment breakage fee

Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed-rate loan early.

Whenever (i) repayment of a loan in full or in part is made or (ii) with the agreement of permanent tsb, the loan is switched to a variable rate loan or other fixed rate loan, before expiry of the Fixed Rate period (hereinafter called the “Early Termination”), the applicant shall, in addition to all other sums payable as a condition of and at the time of the Early Termination, pay a sum equal to the permanent tsb’s estimate of the loss (if any) arising from the Early Termination. In the calculation of the said loss, permanent tsb shall endeavour to apply in so far as it is fair and practicable.

This is how the fee is calculated;

C = (I-S) x R x (M-T)/12

“C” is the charge to compensate for the loss (if greater than 0).

“I” is the swap/market fixed interest rate for the term of the Fixed Rate Period at the date of its commencement.

“S” is the swap/market interest rate for the remaining fixed period.

“R*” is the amount of the Fixed Rate loan balance paid or switched at the date of Early Termination.

“M” is the fixed Rate Period (in months).

“T” is the time expired of the Fixed Rate Period at the date of Early Termination (in months).

Here is a worked example; “I” = 5%, “S” = 3%, “R” = €100,000, “M” = 24 months, “T” = 12 months.

C = (5%-3%) x €100,000 x (24-12) / 12

So, C = 2% x €100,000 x 12 / 12

C = €2,000

R* = For the purposes of the above Fixed rate mortgage breakage fee worked example, a fixed balance of €100,000 representing the loan balance to be paid or switched at the date of Early Termination is used for “R”. In the actual calculation of the fixed rate mortgage breakage fee payable to the Bank, a reducing loan balance approach is used to calculate “R”. This approach is used to take into account the fact that, after the switch or Early Termination, the loan balance typically reduces due to scheduled repayments for the remainder of the fixed rate period. The fee calculated using a reducing balance approach will always be lower than the fee calculated using a fixed balance approach. Please contact your local permanent tsb branch for further information.

Arrears are any element of a mortgage repayment that have not been made and remain outstanding. Interest at the mortgage rate will be applied to the outstanding balance of your loan which includes any payments missed. This may result in increased cost of credit.

Warning: If you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home.


Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit in the future.
