Mortgage is a Norman French term which originated form the various modes of operation of pledges (Walmsely p.56).
A destor in the olden days pledged his farm-land to a creditor by transferring the physical enjoyment to him if the revenue were large enough they repaid the loan immediately but if not the money for repayment had to be raised separately. The former arrangement was called a “phle pledge” (mortgage) while the late a “dead pledge” (mortgage thus the word “mortgage was formed form dead pledge”) (mortgage) which represent a situation where the preceded form a security property could not repay the loan borrowed. Resulting in a search for alternative mean through which repayment could be made.
As the practice of mortgage developed father, it because usual to transfer the destros land outright the creditor on the ground that the destors could redeem it if the debtor defaults the land automatically becomes the creditors. The principles is effective till date and maintain that the property serves as a security only and should therefore be released whenever the loan is repaid.
In Nigeria today there is large-scale default in mortgage repayment by mortgage due to the adverse economic circumstances. Lenders thus resort to auction sales of mortgage securities in order to cover their operating cost.
