The Mortgage in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The mortgage is an accessory contract that constitutes a pledge without transfer of ownership to guarantee an obligation on the part of the debtor.

This link was created as a way to prevent the debtor's insolvency from affecting the creditor's assets, and in principle it would be born in the form of a trust, then that of a pignus, and, by praetorian influence, it would become the mortgage institution.

Thus, the mortgage does not dispose of the property itself, nor does it transfer its possession of it, but rather constitutes the guarantee for the creditor to exercise an action in rem if the debt of the main obligation is not paid.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
