If that is the case, many Muslims get involved in this haram activity from ignorance.
If the A brother had involved themselves in an interest based loan due to ignorance, and has realized they must leave such an accursed thing InshsaaAllah, has made tawbah and is doing their utmost to escape the loan as fast as possible,
then at least he understands to maintain the fardh of zakat even as he is trying to extract himself from this situation.
We do not know if the mortgage involved riba,
But even if it does the question is still a relevant question as the OP cannot neglect his zakat because of his other sins
