Acceleration Clause is a contractual provision that makes the occurrence of a specific event conditional upon the happening or not happening of another event. Example: Many loan or mortgage agreements have acceleration clause provisions, which mandate; if debtor fails to pay a payment on an installment contract, the creditor may declare the entire outstanding balance to be immediately due. Some state statutes prohibit “due on Sale” which is a form of acceleration clause.
