To ensure that you understand all aspects of a reverse mortgage, you’re required to have a counseling session with an independent counselor who’s approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It usually takes about 60 to 90 minutes and can be done in-person or over the phone. (Some states require face-to-facecounseling.)
Your loan officer will submit the paperwork and we’ll process your application. We’ll order a home appraisal, which determines the exact value of your home. We’ll also order title work and existing mortgage payoff amounts. An underwriter will then review the application forapproval.
*The borrower must meet all loan obligations, including living in the property as the principal residence and paying property charges, including property taxes, fees, hazard insurance. The borrower must maintain the home. If the homeowner does not meet these loan obligations, then the loan will need to be repaid.
