life of loan cap


Upper limit (cap) for the interest rate on a loan. This clause is commonly included in adjustable rate mortgage agreements, and (unlike annual cap) does not allow any increase beyond the cap for the entire duration of the loan. For example, a borrower who agreed to a loan at 10% interest rate and a life of loan cap of 5% will never have to pay more than 15% interest rate.
