Acceleration Clause

Acceleration Clause

A loan provision giving the lender the power to declare all sums owing lender immediately due and payable upon the violation of a specific loan provision, such as the sale of the property, or the failure to make loan payments on time.
Example: Sam sells his property to Mary who takes over Sam's mortgage payments. They do not notify the lender of this transaction. The lender finds out that the title to the property has transferred and calls the loan, since the loan documents state that the loan is due on the sale of the property. Sam is now liable to pay his lender in full.
