Equity linked mortgage

The lender takes ownership of a stake in the equity of the property. This means that they lend you less than the full amount that is required to buy the home. Interest is only charged on the amount that they lend you and not on the full value of the property. When you sell the property, the lender receives payment in proportion to the amount of equity that they own, and therefore benefits from any increase in the price of the property.

Renegotiable Rate Mortgage

Renegotiable Rate Mortgage

A real property loan calling for an adjustment in the interest rate at a given time. Example: A loan with a 15 year amortization is adjusted to current interest rates after 2 years. The lender agrees to make the adjusted loan at the new rate as long as the old loan is not in default. The Federal Reserve Board allows the original loan to be treated either as a balloon payment loan or a variable rate loan. However, points must be figured into the A.P.R. based on the time or renegotiation (2 years rather than 15).
