Second Mortgages

A second mortgage is one with a second-priority claim against a property in the event that the borrower defaults. The lender who holds the second mortgage gets paid only after the lender holding the first mortgage is paid. A second mortgage that is taken out at the same time as the first mortgage, in order to avoid private mortgage insurance, is called a “piggyback.” Read Mortgage Piggybacks in a Stressed Market.
