Burnout is a slowdown of mortgage prepayment activity on mortgages that are packaged into a mortgage-backed security (MBS). Mortgagors often prepay the mortgage debt, through refinancing, when interest rates go down. Such prepayment activity is bad for MBS investors, because it reduces future income potential. When an MBS has burnout, a percentage of the underlying mortgages were not prepaid when rates went down. Investors interpret this to mean that these mortgagors are less likely to refinance if rates drop again.

A bust-up takeover is a corporate buyout financed primarily by debt, where the purchaser sells part of the assets of the acquired company to repay the debt.
It is the term used when the lender brings down the rate of interest on the fixed rate mortgage for a temporary period. For the balance period the borrower's payment is calculated at note rate. In order to facilitate this, a lump sum payment is made and kept in an account which helps to supplement the borrower's monthly payments. These funds are sourced out from the seller or elsewhere as an incentive to buy their property. When the initial sum is paid by the lender, it is called the 'lender funded buydown'. This is possible because the note rate on the loan, tafter taking into consideration all adjustments, is higher than the exisitng market rate. The reason for doing this is that it will help in getting the borrower to qualify for the start rate and thus for a higher loan amount. Also, the borrower maybe expecting his earnigns to increase considerably in the future but would prefer a lower payment right now.
