Mortgage Forms FAQ Pennsylvania Mortgage Laws

What is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a pledge of real property to a creditor as security for the repayment of a debt involving the property. For example, if you have borrowed money to purchase a house, the entity you've borrowed the money from can take ownership of the home should you default on payments. The promissory note executed along with the mortgage creates an obligation to repay the debt. The statute of frauds requires that a mortgage must be in writing. Mortgages must be registered with the County Recorder or Recorder of Deeds. There is no specific form for mortgages. Mortgages may even be handwritten.

What types of mortgages are there?

There are many types of mortgages used worldwide. Mortgages vary in interest rates, terms, payment amount, payment frequency, and prepayment penalties. All of these may be subject to local regulation and legal requirements. Mortgages are offered by banks, building societies, insurers, financial advisers, and estate agents.

What is a second mortgage?

A second mortgage is a mortgage made subsequent to another mortgage and subordinate to the first one. Second mortgage loans are different from first mortgages in several ways. They often carry a higher interest rate, and they usually are for a shorter time, 15 years or less. In addition, they may require a large single payment at the end of the term, commonly known as a balloon payment. Second mortgages can use the equity you have in your house as the basis upon which a lender loans you money or lend you money over and above the value of your house.
