Definitions for "Periodic rate cap"
The maximum rate increase for a specific period for a specific loan adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) only
This places a limit on the amount an interest rate may decrease or increase during one adjustment period.
The maximum amount that the note rate may increase or decrease at each interest change date after the first interest change date for the mortgages in an ARM PC pool. However, if an initial cap is not separately disclosed for an ARM PC, the periodic cap is the initial cap. A Periodic Rate Cap of zero (0.00%) indicates that there is no periodic cap and mortgages are subject to the lifetime ceiling and margin only.
