Mortgage

A mortgage is security for a loan on the property that you own. It is your personal guarantee to repay the loan as well as a pledge of the property as security for the loan.

Mortgage Payment

A regularly scheduled payment that is blended to include both principal and interest.



Mortgagee

The lender who provides the mortgage loan.
