David has been great in through all of this never ending escrow process. When one lender did not work, he found another with a closing in a little over [30] days. Zero complaints and one very happy woman as I have accomplished the goal in which was started six months ago. Would I recommend David? You bet in a New York minute. He is one of the best not only in the brokerage business but as a person who has a heart and does listen to his clients.

in the event of my passing, will the bank take my house?

Guidelines - as well as the mortgage insurance - would restrict the note holder (bank) from simply taking your home upon passing. The fact is, once the borrower passes, the home is the property of the heir(s). The heirs can choose to refinance the home, pay off the reverse mortgage, or sell the home and pay off the reverse mortgage.

In the unlikely event that the loan balance is greater than the value of the home, many heirs choice to simply release the property back to the bank (deed-in-lieu of foreclosure). However, it's important to point out that at no time will the heirs be paying the reverse mortgage off with any additional funds other than what the home is sold for.

Also, the heirs will not be charged with a deficiency balance if the bank sells the home for less than what it is owed. Again, this is a non-recourse loan, the bank can’t and will not be coming for the negative balance if one exists.
