About HECM (Reverse Mortgage)
At the conclusion of the term of the reverse mortgage loan contract, some or all of the equity in the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage no longer belongs to you and you may need to sell or transfer the property to repay the proceeds of the reverse mortgage from the proceeds of the sale or transfer or you must otherwise repay the reverse mortgage with interest from your other assets.
We may charge an origination fee, a mortgage insurance premium, closing costs or servicing fees for the reverse mortgage, all or any of which will be added to the balance of the reverse mortgage loan
The balance of the reverse mortgage loan grows over time and interest is charged on the outstanding loan balance.
You retain title to the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage until you sell or transfer the property and therefore you are responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, maintenance and related taxes. Failing to pay these amounts may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately and may be subject to a tax lien or other encumbrance or to possible foreclosure; and
Interest on a reverse mortgage is not deductible from the person’s income tax return until the person repays all or part of the reverse mortgage loan
