Let's Dispel The Reverse Mortgage Myths

The Bank Can Take Away My Home

With forward mortgages that you have been using your entire life, this is very true if you can’t keep up with monthly payments. With a Reverse (Retirement) Mortgage, you have no obligation to make monthly payments. Reverse Mortgages remain in place until the borrower leaves the home permanently. The only way the property can be foreclosed on is if the borrower fails to pay taxes or insurance, but that is the same for every property owner

Another Myth

The Home Must Be Debt Free

One of the most important terms of a reverse mortgage is that the reverse mortgage must pay off any existing mortgage. Understand that the Reverse Mortgage removes the current mortgage and thus the need to make monthly payments. The Reverse Mortgage has no time scale on repayments.

What if I End Up Owing More Than My House Is Worth?

As a borrower, you NEVER OWE MORE than the value of the property even if the loam balance is larger than the value. Even if the property sale doesn’t cover the full sale value of the property, neither borrower or the estate is liable for the remainder of the loan.
