PAYING OFF MORTGAGES (Grain Growers Guide) A farmer with a ten year mortgage i which has now been running eight: years writes us that he tendered pay- ment in full to the mortgage company, j but that the company declined to ac-; cept the principal until .the.full ten years had expired. According to the. Interest Act" of Canada every mort- jage company, must accept. (full. payment of the liprf-sage after, It has vun'jfd'r f ive, .pay-j ment lis offered ;tokether i with a bonus of three months interest. such payment is refused by the uiort-. gage company, no further interest may be collected. No mortgage com- pany will refuse payment when they, realize that the farmer is aware of. this law. As a matter of fact there Is a con-, siderable difference in the 'practice o' various companies in regard to the payment of mortgage .loans. Some j companies will allow a farmer to pay up his mortgage at any time with a bonus of threa months interest, unless f the prepayment is offered within the j first two years, when six months in- j terest is sometimes asked. Other companies will not accept prepayment 1 until the mortgage has matured., When loans are. being .paid off as a rule less frequently than new loans are beisg made, it would seem a rea- sonable practice on the part of mort-, gage companies to acceptjull payment; The C.
