Help available to couples with reverse mortgages

By Elizabeth P. Shay, Esq., director of homeownership rights, SeniorLAW Center

Reverse mortgages have become popular as the result of marketing and television commercials that claim this is a simple way for seniors to get cash from their home with no repayment until after they die. While this type of loan is not suitable for many borrowers, it may be useful for a senior living on a fixed income who is facing foreclosure of their conventional mortgage. But for most seniors, a reverse mortgage is expensive and may pose big risks to borrowers. If you already have a reverse mortgage, take a moment and look over the deed to your home.
