Are there restrictions on how I can use the money from a reverse mortgage?
Generally speaking, no; when you successfully apply for a reverse mortgage, the cash proceeds are yours to spend however you like, whether that may be to pay for a dream vacation or to pay off old credit card debt.
However, borrowers are required to maintain the property and pay taxes on top of mortgage insurance as well as any other financial obligation that could result in a lien. Depending on your financial circumstances, your lender may set funds aside to cover theses required expenses so that you remain compliant with FHA guidelines. You will also need to use the money from the reverse mortgage to settle an existing mortgage balance, if applicable, as well as applicable closing costs.
When does a reverse mortgage have to be paid back?
A reverse mortgage becomes due and payable when triggered by a maturation event, such as the borrower moving out of the property or passing away. The loan could also become due if the borrower fails to meet their loan obligations as agreed upon in the terms.
