Leverage

Cutting to the chase, Leverage is using borrowed money to make you a profit after all costs. For example, borrowing money to purchase a property that you sell on for profit.

Liability

A Liability in financial terms is simply something that costs you money or is a cost to you overall. If you have a property that is not rented out i.e., you’re paying the mortgage every month, it would be considered a liability. Many also mistake a vehicle as an asset, but it’s a liability.

Logbook Loan

Logbook loans are loans secured to your vehicle. In a nutshell, this means the lender “owns” your vehicle until you pay back what you have borrowed. This is generally overlooked as the car stays in your possession and you continue to drive the car or use it day to day.
