If you are a lender or borrower and need representation with respect to the mortgage process or for refinancing, click here.  A mortgage is a security instrument.


When making a loan, a lender should consider the following:

  • Can the borrower repay the loan?
  • What is the collateral on the loan? In other words, if the borrower cannot pay, what asset guarantees the loan?
  • Terms of the loan (interest only, interest and principal, etc.)
