What are Mortgage Banks?
Mortgage banks are banks that specialize in originating and servicing mortgage loans. Mortgage loans are loans where housing property or real estate are used as collateral, or loans used to purchase housing property or real estate.
Mortgage loans are used by real estate buyers to raise funds to purchase real estate, or by existing property owners to raise funds for any purpose, with the property (usually a housing property) used as collateral.
For real estate buyers, mortgage financing involves the borrower/buyer paying a fraction of the payment for the desired property he wishes to acquire.
The lender – usually a bank – then offsets the balance and starts making monthly deductions from the account of the borrow as agreed by both parties in a legally binding document. When used to purchase housing property, a mortgage loan is also known as a home loan.
In Nigeria, before one is giving a mortgage loan however, certain documents would be required. These documents are; An introduction letter from your employer, Copy of documents of the property, Valuation report of the property, salary stubs, cash flow projection on repayment of the loan, bank statement and offer letter from an agent.
Once these documents are in place, the bank can then go ahead to offer the individual/firm a mortgage loan. It is also important to note that interest rates on mortgage loans are lower than on any other loan.
This is because a housing property/real estate is used as collateral, and so the bank has the security that if the loan cannot be repaid through the process set in place at the acquiring of the loan, the property used as collateral will be sold to repay the loan.
In Nigeria, a number of banks like Access Bank and Guarantee Trust Bank offer mortgages to individuals and establishments.
