DEFINITION of 'Wraparound Mortgage'

A type of loan that enables a borrower who is paying off an existing mortgage to obtain more financing from a second lender or seller. The new lender (typically a bank or the seller of the real property) assumes the payment of the existing mortgage and provides the borrower with a new, larger loan, usually at a higher interest rate.


A wraparound mortgage is also known as a wraparound loan, overriding mortgage, or all-inclusive mortgage.
