  • Refitting your home to make it more accessible
  • Making the most of retirement by funding travel and leisure

Reverse Mortgages in TX: FAQs

Curious about finding the right Texas reverse mortgage company? GoodLife’s reverse mortgage FAQs can help you make the right choice.

Are there restrictions on how I can use the money from a reverse mortgage?

When you successfully apply for a reverse mortgage, the proceeds you receive are yours to spend how you like: whether that’s for a dream vacation or paying back medical debt. It’s good to note, however, that you may also have to set funds aside for home repairs and insurance, in order to remain compliant with FHA requirements.

When does a reverse mortgage have to be paid back?

Reverse mortgages are collectible when triggered by a maturation event, like the passing of the borrower and eligible non-borrowing spouse, or the homeowners moving out of the property. The loan may also become payable if the borrower should fail to meet property tax or insurance obligations.

How do I receive the proceeds from my reverse mortgage loan?

GoodLife Home Loans allows borrowers to choose their favored method of payment. Borrowers may receive a lump sum, monthly installments, a line of credit, or a combination of these options.
