*Mortgage Lien: an encumbrance on property used to secure a loan. The holder of the lien has a claim to the property
in case of loan default. The priority of the claim depends on the order of recording and any subordination agreements. Thus a first mortgage generally has prior claim to all other mortgage lien holders.
