    A reverse mortgage is a loan available
    to seniors 62 and over. It is used to
    release the home equity in the property
    as one lump sum or periodic amounts
    according to contract.
    Unlike typical mortgages where the loan
    is amortized in monthly payments until
    the obligation with the lender is
    completely satisfied (typically in 30
    years) in the reverse mortgages, the
    borrower doesn't need to make monthly
    payments and the interest charged is
    added to the principal owed.

    When the homeowner (borrower)  sells
    the house, passes away, or moves out
    for one consecutive year, the reverse
    mortgage can be paid off by the
    proceeds of the sale, or refinancing by
    the heirs of the homeowner's state.  If
    there is a gain, the owners or heirs will
    receive the proceeds of the sale. If
    there is a loss, the insurance makes up
    the difference.
