List of mortgage banks in Nigeria

When it comes to Nigeria’s financial institutions, also called mortgage lenders, mortgage banks in Nigeria are doing a great job.

What are mortgage banks? What do these banks do and how many mortgage banks are in Nigeria today? That’s what this article will answer.

The word “mortgage” is used to refer to a loan from a bank or financial institution that helps the borrower purchase a house.

A key feature of mortgage banks is that a mortgage is secured by the home itself, so if the borrower defaults on the loan, the bank can sell the home and recoup its losses.

Mortgage payments are usually monthly and consist of four components: principal, interest, taxes and insurance.
