Exit fee

The exit fee for the consumer refers to a charge that is made if they leave a product usually during a period where they are bound by restrictions.

For instance if you set up a mortgage, and have a fixed rate for a couple of years, but you decide to leave the mortgage during that period there will probably be an exit fee charged - of course exit charges have to be stated clearly up front so you will be aware of them before taking out the product.
