Repaying a Southwest Funding Reverse Mortgage

       
         

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

       
       
         
       
         

A reverse mortgage 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 becomes due there are two options for paying it off.          

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

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

Money          
  • 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
