What about repaying Reverse Mortgage Loans?

The very nature of a reverse mortgage loan can be confusing. With a reverse mortgage loan lenders pay you either monthly or with one lump sum. The following lists provide information regarding repayment of a reverse mortgage loan.

A reverse mortgage loan comes due when under the following conditions:

  • Death of the homeowner
  • Upon sale of the home by the homeowner
  • If the homeowner lives elsewhere for 12 consecutive months (i.e. assisted living home)

When the reverse mortgage loan becomes due there are two options for paying it off.

  1. Proceeds from the sale of the home
  2. The heirs of the homeowner or the homeowner can refinance the loan

Like all loans a reverse mortgage loan does carry conditions in order to remain valid. Below is a list of reasons for which a borrower would find themselves in default.

Repaying a Reverse Mortgage

  • Failure to pay property taxes
  • Failure to keep the home in good repair
  • Failure to insure the home
  • Taking of new debt on the home
  • Bankruptcy
  • Abandonment or donation of the home
  • Eminent domain
