With a reverse mortgage, no monthly mortgage payments are required. Minimum age is 62. Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes and homeowner’s insurance. Failure to pay may subject the property to a tax lien or other encumbrance or to possible foreclosure. Borrowers must occupy home as primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance, otherwise the loan becomes due and payable. A reverse mortgage is a loan and may result in negative equity. The loan must be paid off when the last borrower or eligible non-borrowing surviving spouse dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, or does not comply with the loan’s terms. Reverse mortgages are first and second mortgage loans. This video is not from HUD or FHA and was not approved by HUD/FHA or a government agency.
