Charges such as an origination fee, mortgage insurance premiums, closing costs and/or servicing fees may be assessed and will be added to the loan balance. As long as you comply with the terms of the loan, you retain title until you sell or transfer the property, and, therefore, you are responsible for paying property taxes, insurance and maintenance. Failing to pay these amounts may cause the loan to become immediately due and/or subject the property to a tax lien, other encumbrance or foreclosure. The loan balance grows over time, and interest is added to that balance. Interest on a reverse mortgage is not deductible from your income tax until you repay all or part of the interest on the loan. Although the loan is non-recourse, at the maturity of the loan, the lender will have a claim against your property and you or your heirs may need to sell the property in order to repay the loan, or use other assets to repay the loan in order to retain the property.
Before obtaining a reverse mortgage, you should consult a trusted financial adviser or planner. There are government agencies and nonprofit organizations that can give you information about reverse mortgages. You can locate these resources at:
Please note that before you can complete an application for a Federal Housing Administration – insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage loan, you must undergo counseling with a counseling agency approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”). Your loan originator will provide you with a disclosure of available HUD-approved counseling agencies.
