Per Diem Interest
January 19, 2023
Per diem interest is the daily interest imposed on a loan, most often on mortgages. This type of interest is computed as part of the administrative procedure between the loan's closing date and when the mortgage loan begins. If a borrower gets their principal payment and begins the loan payback term on a day other than the first of the month, per diem interest charges may apply.
