What is the Mortgages Industry?

This industry comprises the mortgage lending activities of authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs). ADIs include banks, building societies and credit unions. A mortgage is a loan secured by real property with features such as loan size, maturity, interest rate and payment method. Loan size depends mostly on the value of the securing property. Mortgages can be refinanced to reflect property revaluations. The industry does not include mortgage brokers.
