    Ministry of Agriculture Announces Intention To Ban Dog Meat Trade

    Question about owning land

    I dont belive you would have to pay yourself back on the mortgage , I think you misunderstand ...you all ready pa yed for the land but on paper you are giving a mortgage to whoever name is on the deed. It's like you are loaning the money to the person to buy the land (on paper)

    Question about owning land

    On number one after 20 years I'm sure it will be sold by the person holding the mortgage. On number two can't you just foreclose if you own the mortgage if you wanted to sell it. Make it a on demand mortgage.
