Mortgage vs. Charge

Key Differences

A mortgage is a specific type of loan used for acquiring real estate, where the property itself serves as collateral. A charge, in a broader sense, is any lien or claim on an asset used as security for the repayment of a debt.

In a mortgage, the borrower agrees to pay back the loan over a set period, with the property at risk of foreclosure if payments are not made. A charge can be levied on various types of assets, not just real estate, and it secures the asset for the creditor until the obligation is fulfilled.

Mortgages are typically used by individuals to finance the purchase of a home or property. In contrast, charges can be used in various financial contexts, including corporate financing, where assets other than real estate can be used as collateral.

The mortgage involves a legal agreement that transfers the property's title to the lender until the loan is repaid. A charge, especially a fixed charge, may not necessarily involve the transfer of title but still gives the creditor a right to the asset if the debtor defaults.

Mortgages are often long-term arrangements, with terms ranging up to 30 years. Charges, depending on their nature, can be short-term or long-term, and their terms are defined by the underlying debt or obligation.

Mortgage

(legal) A special form of secured loan where the purpose of the loan must be specified to the lender, to purchase assets that must be fixed (not movable) property, such as a house or piece of farm land. The assets are registered as the legal property of the borrower but the lender can seize them and dispose of them if they are not satisfied with the manner in which the repayment of the loan is conducted by the borrower. Once the loan is fully repaid, the lender loses this right of seizure and the assets are then deemed to be unencumbered.
