    Morgaged bunglow.

    "They were living in a morgaged or pawned bunglow and wanted to redeem it by paying back the loan they took."

    Please check.

    Re: Morgaged bunglow.

    It's too complicated. We'd be more likely to say something like They wanted to pay off the mortgage on the bungalow they lived in.

    What word should be used for "morgaged bunglow?"

    My sentences are not wrong, is it correct?

    Re: Morgaged bunglow.

    Your sentence is extremely unnatural.

    Re: Morgaged bunglow.

    We don't tend to use "mortgaged" as an adjective very much. We say that we own a property "outright" (no mortgage) or "with a mortgage".

    Note the correct spelling of "mort​gage".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Morgaged bunglow.

    And I've never heard of anyone pawning a house.

    Re: Morgaged bunglow.

    Note the correct spelling of 'bungalow'.

    ems said 'We don't tend to use "mortgaged" as an adjective very much'.

    I say 'I live in a bungalow'. If you ask me whether I have a mortgage or not, I say 'Mind your own business'.

    Re: Morgaged bunglow.

    A little flippantly, I have been known to say "I own my flat. Well, actually, the bank owns it!" I have a mortgage so technically, the bank which gave me the mortgage actually own the house until I have paid back the entire outstanding amount.
