Why does the deferral payment increase each time?

The deferral fee is $25 for each and every deferral request that is made. An additional $25 is charged for the second deferral and $50 for the 3rd deferral.

We do require a minimum of 48 hours notice in order to stop a regular loan payment, and 7 days to stop a surety fee.
