No. A borrower may designate an heir of their choosing. The heir(s) will inherit the home after the last surviving borrower passes away and may then choose to keep (by paying off the amount of reverse mortgage balance) or sell the home. Should they choose to sell, any remaining equity after paying off the loan (minus interest and/or fees) would be theirs.**
Yes. Many borrowers use a reverse mortgage to pay off their existing mortgage and eliminate their monthly mortgage payment. In many cases, there is a line of credit left over for the borrower.
The amount you can borrow is dependent on several factors including: age, home appraisal value and current interest rates.
You should always check with your tax specialist before applying, however,
in general, a reverse mortgage does not affect Social Security and/or Medicare.
The bank does not take ownership of your home, they simply extend a loan
to you. You continue to own and live in your home and are responsible for payment of property taxes, required insurance and any applicable HOA fees.
