What is a due-on-sale-clause?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Due-on-Sale Clause."

If you snagged a mortgage at a very low interest rate, your lender may want to make sure that the great rate doesn't stay with the house when it's sold.

A due-on-sale clause requires that when a home sale is finished, so is the old mortgage.
