Synonyms of "Mortgage" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between mortgage and loan ?
A: A mortgage is a type of loan specific to owning a house.
A loan could be for different things, in general.
Q: What is the difference between mortgage and loan ?
A: is correct. I'd like to add the following subtle points:

A mortgage is any sort of loan and does not have to be for the sole purpose of buying property. However, the distinguishing characteristic of a mortgage is that you must use real estate as a "collateral". Basically, if you default, the lender will use your collateral to pay themselves.

Because of this security for lenders, they are usually willing to lend larger sums of money and for longer periods of time at lower interest rates than other forms of loans which are not backed up by real estate.
Q: What is the difference between mortgage and credit and loan ?
A: If you don’t have enough money to buy a house (and in the US almost nobody does) you get a mortgage. You can also say “I mortgaged the house.” This means the bank owns the house until you pay them back.

A bank looks at your credit history or credit score to decide if they will loan you money for a mortgage.

If you have not paid your bills on time or have had other money problems you will have a low credit score and the bank will not give you a loan.

You can say “I got a loan from the bank to pay for my car.” Or “I will loan you some money so you can pay the bill.”

Other questions about "Mortgage"

Q: How much is your mortgage?

Does this mean the total amount of the mortgage or only monthly mortgage you pay each month?
A: If someone asked me this I would have to get clarification because I think it could mean either one! Also do they want to know the interest rate? How many years you have to pay it off? I'd have to follow up to answer accurately.

I've heard of "a mortgage", "mortgage payment", and "mortgage bill" to refer to the dollar amount you pay monthly to the bank. Here's some examples:
"I can't quit my job, I've got a mortgage to pay."
"Americans need relief payments in order to pay off their mortgage bills."
"My mortgage payment is over 60% of my paycheck."
Q: What is the mortgage?
Can you give me some examples?
A: @Oceanii Yes, you can say "How much is your mortgage?"

However, this is a little bit ambiguous, mostly due to people using mortgage wrong. Many people will say "mortgage" when they mean "monthly mortgage payment", such as "How much is the mortgage on a $250k house?" or "My mortgage is $2000/month."

To be completely clear you might say "How much is the loan amount on your mortgage?" or "What is the total amount of your mortgage?".
