Mortgage repayments are the payments you make back to the financial institution that lent you money to purchase your home. The mortgage repayments are stated in your contract, and are calculated based on the total loan amount divided by the term, plus interest and other fees. These are usually paid on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Each payment made is debited from your outstanding debt, so with each payment you are a step closer to owning your investment or home.
