A first mortgage is a loan that is secured by a property's title. The borrower uses the property as collateral for the loan. A first mortgage is the primary loan that pays for the property. It has priority over all other liens or claims on the property. If the borrower defaults on the loan, the lender can foreclose on the property and sell it to recoup its losses.

##### What are the 3 types of mortgage?

The 3 types of mortgage are fixed rate, adjustable rate, and interest only.

A fixed rate mortgage means that the interest rate on the loan will remain the same for the entire term of the loan. This type of mortgage is good for people who want to know exactly how much their monthly payment will be and who want the stability of a fixed interest rate.

An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) means that the interest rate on the loan will change over time. The interest rate is usually tied to an economic index, such as the prime rate. This type of mortgage is good for people who expect their income to increase over time or who plan to sell their home before the interest rate adjusts.

An interest only mortgage means that the borrower will only pay the interest on the loan for a certain period of time. The borrower will not pay any of the principal of the loan during this time. This type of mortgage is good for people who want the lowest possible monthly payment and who are confident that they will be able to pay off the entire loan when the interest-only period ends.

##### What does first mortgage P&I mean?

A first mortgage P&I is a type of mortgage where the borrower pays both the principal (the amount of the loan) and the interest (the cost of borrowing the money) in equal monthly installments. This is the most common type of mortgage, and it usually has the lowest interest rate.

#### What is P&I interest?

What is the technical definition of a mortgage? A mortgage is a loan that a borrower takes out to finance the purchase of a property. The loan is secured by the property itself, which means that if the borrower defaults on the loan, the lender can foreclose on the property and sell it to recoup the loan's value.

How many mortgages can you have on a house? You can have multiple mortgages on a single property, but there are caveats. You must disclose all mortgages to potential lenders, and some lenders limit the number of mortgages you can have on a property. Also, the more mortgages you have on a property, the greater the risk to the lender in the event of default, so you may be required to pay a higher interest rate.
