Loan and Mortgage Terms Glossary

Liability:

An item of value that is part of the overall debt or obligation of a person or business. For example, a mortgage is a liability of the homeowner/borrower, but the same mortgage is an asset of the savings and loan/lender. At savings institutions, savings deposits and all borrowed money are considered liabilities. Net worth, or regulatory capital, is accounted for as a liability because it is an obligation of the institution to its owners. See asset.
