The assumption fee is a fee paid to a lender resulting from the assumption of an existing mortgage. The fee is generally paid by the purchaser. Since all loans have a variety of fees, it might be very favorable to the new buyer to pay an assumption fee rather than a host of other fees involved in a new mortgage.
