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.
