The development of mortgage activates various sectors of the country's economy, such as the construction industry, the real estate market, entrepreneurship, and creates the conditions for investing in the economy. In addition to the economic role, mortgage also performs important social functions, which are manifested in the possibility of improving housing conditions for certain segments of the population; in this regard, the issues of analysis and assessment of mortgage lending in the Russian Federation do not lose their relevance.?The problem of mortgage lending is connected with a housing problem that 60% of Russian families have to confront. The problem is dissatisfaction with housing conditions, especially by young families with children.
