What is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a type of loan that allows you to borrow the amount you need to buy, build or refinance a property (home, condo, etc). Your property serves as a guarantee for the lender. In this case, the lender would be National Bank. 

The amount of a mortgage is usually quite high. That's why repayment in instalments is usually made over several years.   

Making a down payment from your savings will be deducted from the purchase price of your new property. The balance is the amount of your mortgage
