"Mortgage" in context

A mortgage is a loan taken out to purchase property or land. Mortgages are secured loans, which means the loan is given against an asset - usually a property. The borrower pays a regular interest rate over a specific period of time, usually 15 to 30 years. As the borrower pays back the loan, the equity in the property increases. Mortgage payments are often tax-deductible, which can help make ownership more affordable.

In a home mortgage, the lender holds legal title to the property until the loan is paid in full. If the borrower stops making payments, then the lender can take back the property.
