Term Definition
Debt An amount owed to another.
Debt ratio The total of the proposed monthly payments divided by the total monthly income.
Debt security A security that represents a loan from an investor to an issuer.
Deductible In insurance, the amount of cash paid by the insured for damages. For instance, an insured may have a $2,000 claim with a $500 deductible. The insured pays $500 while the insurance company pays the remainder. The higher the deductible, the lower the cost of the insurance policy.
Deed The legal document conveying title to a property.
Deed-in-lieu A deed given by a mortgagor to the mortgagee to satisfy a debt and avoid foreclosure.
Deed of trust The document used in some states instead of a mortgage; title is conveyed to a trustee.
Default Failure to make mortgage payments on a timely basis or to comply with other requirements of a mortgage.
Delinquency Failure to make mortgage payments when mortgage payments are due.

Depreciation A decline in the value of property; the opposite of appreciation.
Derivative A contract between two or more parties where the security depends on the price of another investment.

Document recording After closing, public records must be made to discharge the prior mortgage holder and file the new deed.
Down payment The part of the purchase price of a property that the buyer pays in cash and does not finance with a mortgage.
