For those of you who are new to debt loans, here is some guidance on the jargon you'll hear when you go out to compare and apply for these loans, and get yourselves out of debt.

You may, for instance, need a bridging loan, when you are going to incur a temporary debt. This is the type of loan that would enable you, for instance, to buy new property before you have sold the property you now have. This might occur, for instance, when you see a great property deal that you think will make you more money than the debt you incur on the loan but you have to move fast. In times when you must relocate for yours or your personal partner's job, for example, you may find it better to take out a bridging loan to buy the new home, instead of moving into a rental while you wait for your old home to sell.

A conveyance is the legal debt loan document that will transfer to the new owner, the debtor, the ownership of the land she or he is buying unregistered.
Another common term in debt loans situations is disbursements. This term simply refers to all the fees and charges of the attorneys and government officials that must be paid to secure debt loans for mortgages. In the U.S. these could be closing costs, assessment fees, termite inspection and so forth. In the U.K. they are commonly stamp duties, title search fees and land registry.

An early redemption charge is often referred to as a pre payment penalty or as a redemption penalty. This is one thing that a home buyer who is savvy about saving her or his money will want to avoid if they can. Debt loans that have these redemption penalties penalize the conscientious debtor for paying the debt off early. The reason behind this is that the lenders make their money in fees, charges and interest rates. The sooner the debt loans are paid off the less that lender makes.

Equity is one of the most often used terms in a mortgage situation. What is means is the value of the property the debtor can claim at any point in that debt loan. In other words, it is the market value of the real estate at any point in time, minus the amount of money the owner / debtor still owes on it.

If, for example, a mortgagee buys a home for $220,000 by paying $20,000 down and borrowing $200,000, pays off $1000 a month, and then the house appreciates to a market value of $300,000 after 2 years, the equity that owner has in that home would be determined first by subtracting totally payments of $24,000 ($1000 per month multiplied by 24 months) subtracted from the total debt of $200,000. That total, $176,000 still owed, would be subtracted from the market value of $300,000, for an equity of $124,000.

Freehold is term given to someone who has paid off their real estate debt loans and now owns land or property.

Land registration is another name for title. Just as with a vehicle, title or land registration is given free and clear to an owner when she or he has paid off any debt loans on the land or property.
