Frequently Asked Questions
Will the homeowner owe more than the house is worth?
The homeowner keeps all the equity remaining in the home. In Home Equity Banks many years of experience, over 99% of homeowners have money left over when their loan is repaid. The equity remaining depends on the amount borrowed, the value of the home, and the amount of time that’s passed since the reverse mortgage was taken out.
Will the bank own the home?
No. The homeowner retains title and maintains ownership of the home. It’s required for the homeowner to live in the home, pay taxes on time, have property insurance and maintain the property in good condition.
Will the loan be called if one of the homeowners passes away?
No! Surviving spouses can choose to remain in the home without having to make a regular payment (principal or interest) unless they choose to sell the home.
