What is a Reverse Mortgage?

A reverse mortgage is an option for seniors over the age of 70, that allows you to access the equity in your home to enjoy your retirement.

You can use it to renovate the home to make it more comfortable during the later stage of life, cover the cost of in-home care, day-to-day expenses or to consolidate debt, removing the need for regular repayments.

  • Interest is calculated on the daily balance outstanding and added monthly to your loan account. This will see your loan balance increase over time.
  • Using the funds from your property now could reduce what you could access later on.
  •  Variable interest rates do change, and what you’re charged in interest will change along with them.
  • The loan balance will be payable within 12 months of moving from your home, selling or the last home owner passing on.
  •  There are fees and charges involved in choosing to take out this product.
