In return the lender(Bank) will be paid interest from the homebuyer or borrower, usually over a long period of time (10-30 years). Also, is mortgage loan is “secured” meaning if the terms are violated, ie: missing too many payments, the loan can be taken away and liquidated. The lender often requires the borrow to purchase “Homeowner’s insurance” if it’s a private property.  There are different Mortgage Loan types in which the method of re-payment varies.
