Inheriting a Home with a Reverse Mortgage

Posted by Nina Whitehurst | Feb 01, 2020 | 1 Comment

Trying to save a home from foreclosure by a reverse mortgage lender is harder than trying to save a home from foreclosure of a normal, non-reverse mortgage. This is because residential (non-reverse) mortgage lenders are not allowed to call the loan due when the borrower dies if the property is being inherited by a family member. All you have to do is keep paying the monthly payments. With a reverse mortgage, you can't just keep making the mortgage payments in order to save the home.

A case involving basketball star Caldwell Jones demonstrates the danger in having only one spouse's name on a reverse mortgage.

While there are protections in place for non-borrowing spouses, many spouses are still facing foreclosure and eviction.
