Purchase Money Mortgage

property institution seller

A security device entered into when the seller of property, as opposed to a bank or financial institution, advances a sum of money or credit to the purchaser in return for holding the mortgage on the property.

The seller of the property, rather than a lending institution, is the mortgagee. These mortgages are given concurrently with the conveyance of the land or the transfer of the items sold.
