Simple Mortgage Deed 4


Mortgage is a common but ambiguous term in todays loan oriented society. The popular term
mortgage carries with it various vague ideas .We the common people know that we need to
mortgage our property in order to get loans such as house building loans, car loans and
educational loans and so on.

Section 58 of the Transfer of Property Act defines various types of mortgages. Section 58(A)
defines Mortgage as the transfer of an interest in specific immovable property for the purpose
of securing the payment of the money advanced or to be advanced by way of loan, an existing or
future debt or the performance of an agreement which may give rise to a pecuniary liability. The
transferor is called a Mortgagor, the transferee a mortgagee; the principal money and interest of
which payment is secured for the time being are called Mortgage-Money and the instrument by
which the transfer is affected is called a Mortgage-Deed.

Section 58(b) defines a Simple Mortgage, where without delivering possession of the
mortgaged property, the mortgagor binds himself personally to pay the mortgage money and
agrees, expressly or impliedly, that in the event of his failing to pay according to his contract, the
mortgagee shall have the right to cause the mortgaged property to be sold for satisfaction of the
mortgage money. Such a mortgage is called Simple mortgage.

Generally speaking when a person wishes to buy some movable or immovable property for
which he is in need of money, then he can take loan mortgaging his movable or immovable
property. In case of mortgage the banks or financial institutions give loan by securing the
repayment of the loan with the interest in a specific movable and/or immovable property
transferred by the person who has taken the loan. Mortgage works as a security of the loan
amount. It is way to secure profit for the bank and/ financial institutions and it is the way of
getting loans for the common people, builder and/or company, firm etc. Mortgage is French
term which means death contract. The term death contract means that the pledge (promise,
bailment, guarantee) ends only when the loan is repaid, the obligation is fulfilled or when the
borrower takes over and/or sells the collateral, the mortgaged property by way of foreclosure.

To provide for a model format of a simple mortgage deed under section 58 of Transfer of
Property Act, 1882

Simple Mortgage Deed 6

According to the Section 58(a) of the Transfer of Property Act 1882 A mortgage is the transfer
of interest in specific immovable property for the purpose of securing the payment of money
advanced or to be advanced by way of loan , an existing or future debt or performance of an
engagement which may give rise to a pecuniary liability.

The transferor is called the mortgagor , the transferee is called the mortgagee, the principal
money and interest of which payment is secured for the time being are called the mortgage -
money, and the instrument (if any) by which the transfer is effected is called a mortgage deed.

The Blacks Law Dictionary (7th) Edition defines the term mortgage:

A conveyance of title to property that is given as security for the payment of a debt or the
performance of a duty and that will become void upon performance according to the stipulated

A lien against property that is granted to secure an obligation (such as debt) and that is
extinguished upon payment or performance according to stipulated terms.

1. An instrument (such as a deed or contract) specifying the terms of such a transaction.

2. Loosely the loan on which such a transaction is based.
3. The mortgagees right conferred by such a transaction.
4. Loosely any real- property security transaction, including a deed of trust.
5. Therefore by way of mortgage deed the mortgagor transfers his interest in a specific
immovable property, the mortgaged property for securing the payment of mortgaged
money to the mortgagee.

Legal significance and/or essential elements of the term mortgage:

1. There must be a transfer of interest

2. The interest transferred must be some specific immovable property.
3. The purpose of the transfer must be to secure the payment of any debt or performance of
an engagement which may give rise to a pecuniary liability.

Simple Mortgage Deed 7

Simple mortgage is executed where without any property being delivered to the mortgagee; the
mortgagor makes himself liable to repay the debt. In simple words Simple Mortgage is used to
notify all mortgage deeds where the debtors binds himself through a personal covenant and gives
his property as security to the creditor.1

It is implied by him in an express or implied manner that in the event of non-repayment of loan,
the mortgaged property can be used to make good of the loan by the mortgagee. In a deed of
simple mortgage, the transfer of right signifies the right to liquidate the property. There is no rule
stating that such right be expressly mentioned in the mortgage deed. 2

The fundamental characteristic of simple mortgage is that the mortgagee has no right to liquidate
the property without the permission of the court. The mortgagee can apply to the court for
consent to offer the sold property, or file a suit for recuperation of the entire sum without
offering the property.3

Personal Liability
A simple mortgage entails two types of liabilities, personal liability and the mortgaged property. 4
In a standard mortgage deal, the mortgagor does not have any personal liability and on non-
repayment of loans, the mortgagee can move on to liquidate the mortgaged property in order to
make good of the loan. But in a simple mortgage, there is a personal liability on part of the
mortgagor to repay the loan along with the mortgaged property, hence the mortgagee has to
option to move against either the mortgagor personally thus obtaining a decree against him or he
can move against the mortgaged property to liquidate it for the payment of loan. The presence of
a personal covenant is very important in a simple mortgage and that is what distinguishes it from
other forms of mortgage.

Simple Mortgage Deed 8

No Delivery of Possession
There is no delivery of mortgaged property in simple mortgage. The money can be recovered by
a money decree. A clause to transfer the complete interest of a mortgaged property to the
mortgagee on non-payment of loans changes the simple mortgage into mortgage with possession.

Sale of Property
In mortgage, the mortgagor may give the power to sale the property either expressly or
impliedly. This basically means that on the event of non-payment of debt, the mortgagee can sell
the mortgaged property. But even if the contract of mortgage specifically talks about selling the
property on non-payment the mortgagee cannot go ahead with the sale of the mortgaged property
and has to wait for the intervention of the court to sell the mortgaged property.

Adverse Possession
A trespasser who removes the mortgagor and takes possession of the land that land can still be
legally mortgaged. The trespasser can become the owner of the limited right the mortgagor has
over the land mortgaged by him but it does not in any way take away the legal rights of the
mortgagee over the mortgaged land in a simple mortgage .Adverse possession is valid only when
the mortgagee who has a right over the mortgaged land does not take possession over the land in
time and he runs against time which is from the day he gets his right to interest over the
mortgaged land. If there is no accrual of rights to possess the land by the mortgagee, his right
cannot be taken away by the mere possession of that particular mortgaged land by the adverse

If the mortgage has been declared illegal for being unregistered and the mortgagee has been in
possession of that land for more than 12 years then after 12 years, the mortgage becomes valid.

Agreement for Mortgage

As the sale of an immovable property by a conveyance is preceded by an agreement for sale, it is
advisable that in case of a Mortgage there should be an agreement to mortgage executed between
the mortgagor and the mortgagee. If the one is acting for the Mortgagee then precaution should
also be taken of having a particular sum deposited by the Mortgager towards the costs of the
Mortgagees Solicitor or Advocate. If this precaution is not taken one may find that the
mortgager may change his mind and if the transaction is not put through, the mortgagee may
become responsible to his solicitor or advocate for paying his costs.

Simple Mortgage Deed 9

The period for which the amount is advanced must be mentioned and the date on which the
repayment must be made which is known as the due date must also be mentioned. Many time the
period of the mortgage may be one or two years with an option to the mortgagor to extend the
period provided he has complied with all the terms and conditions of the Mortgage and has been
regular in payment of interest and any other amount that may be due.

Simple mortgage is distinguished from other forms of mortgage by the presence of a personal
covenant. In simple mortgage, the mortgagor binds himself personally to the mortgagee to repay
the loan and also pledges his property as a security, which can be liquidated on default of
payment. But a decree has to be passed by the court to liquidate the security and without the
intervention of the court, the security cannot be liquidated. One more characteristic that must be
kept in mind that there is only a partial transfer of interest from the mortgagor to the mortgagee
on transfer of property.
