The fee of the mortgage is each one of the periodic payments that are made for the repayment of the mortgage loan. It is the amount to be paid (generally monthly, quarterly or semi-annual), which includes the principal plus interest.
If the deficiency is contemplated, the installments are formed solely by interests; If the loan is in the amortization period, the installment includes the interests plus the amortization of capital.
Through the periodic payment of these installments, at the end of the established period (10, 20, 30, 40 ... years), the complete amortization of the mortgage loan is achieved, making possible the cancellation of the mortgage.
The installments to pay usually vary in the modality of mortgages with a flexible interest rate. In this case, it is necessary to monitor the evolution of Euribor annually and see the result of its update as a reference index ... In 2005, the month-by-month reviews have meant in most cases a lower cost of fees or monthly fee to pay given the favorable evolution of the Euribor year-on-year. The opposite occurs if interest rates, and therefore benchmark indices, move upward.
