Reverse Mortgage Refinance Questions Answered By Our Experts

Question From b. phillips on 9/10/2018

I got a reverse mortgage 6 yrs ago at 65 yrs old line of credit as the yrs go by my question because they lend us 65% of the money in equity can we do a redo when the credit limit is almost gone again, what are the costs will it be the same as before, I understand the principal limit was 65% so what happens when your money is low can it be done again?

Expert Answer

You can refinance a reverse mortgage with a new reverse mortgage but HUD will only allow it if it makes sense.  In other words, if you receive enough money from the new loan that the benefits outweigh the costs (they usually consider a 5 times or more return of the costs).  The issues you may run into is that HUD has lowered the benefits available to borrowers several times over that 6 year period and interest rates are higher now (the higher the rate, the less money you receive under the program).  Unless your property has increased in value, there may be no money available on a current refinance.

You can always go to our website and plug your figures in to see if the refinance will work for you.  The website address is https://reverse.mortgage/refinance-calculator and you will need your current statement as well as a good idea of the value of your home.  If you aren’t sure and need a little help, we would also be happy to look online for you and see if we can find some recent sales of similar homes in your area which would give us a good idea of your home’s current value.  Let us know if we can help.

Question From MaryAnn A. on 9/04/2018

If I have a reverse mortgage and need another to stay in my home because of high medical expenses, can I apply to other companies? As I understand it, there is a limit or percentage you can receive on each loan {these are jumbo or proprietary loans) and each company has different terms with which you must qualify. Also, these can change because of other factors. This is an extremely important question re: this aspect of these loans since all I have is social security and the equity in my property (currently I have a high level of equity). Otherwise I will have to sell in order to have money to live.I would appreciate as fast a response as possible since I am now needing to make this decision asap.Thanks very much.

Expert Answer

Hi MaryAnn,

Yes, you can refinance a current reverse mortgage with another reverse mortgage if the equity position is high enough so that the loan makes sense.  You can determine whether or not the loan would make sense in your case simply by running the numbers on our online calculator at https://reverse.mortgage/refinance-calculator.  There is no cost or obligation to determine if a refinance would work in your case.

There are other options open to you if you decide that the refinance does not work for you, especially if you are in a home that would have to be considered for a jumbo or proprietary reverse mortgage.  If the refinance does not work, you might consider downsizing and using a reverse mortgage to purchase a smaller, less expensive property.  Many borrowers use this strategy to buy smaller homes or homes that are closer to family that also allow them to reduce costs and pull cash out for living expenses.

Some look for homes that might better suit their needs such as one story properties, homes that are handicap accessible or one that no longer requires yardwork, etc.  Whatever your reasons, if a move is something you might consider as well, you can also use the calculator to determine what would be needed for down payment and closing costs and what that would leave you liquid from a sale of your current residence.  And the best part is, you would still have a reverse mortgage on the new place so still no monthly mortgage payment.

Question From CJ on 8/02/2018

I am 69 my new husband is 66. He as a reverse mortgage and wants to add me to it. What is the best way t accomplish this?

Expert Answer

Hello CJ,

There is no way to simply “add” a borrower to an existing loan.  The only way you can accomplish what you are looking to do would be to refinance the loan in both your names now after he adds you to title.  He can add you to title which would ensure that you have the property if something were to happen to him without refinancing the loan, but that would not guarantee that you can stay in the home as the loan would become due and payable if he should ever stop living in the home as his primary residence.

If he just adds you to title, while you would retain the home if he passes before you, it would require that you take steps at that time to pay off the reverse mortgage by refinancing the loan or selling the home.  If you want to be sure that you do not have to take any action at all in the event something happens to your husband, that would require a refinance at this time in both your names under the current HUD program parameters.

If you would like to see what you might expect to receive under the current HUD guidelines and the current property value, please don’t hesitate to visit our HECM refinance calculator.  It is quick and easy to use and there is never any cost or obligation.

Question From Norman C. on 7/27/2018

My spouse and I have had a reverse mortgage since 02/11/2013. Current interest rate of 4.99. I'm not sure of what the appraisal was when we got this mortgage but I know that today it would be much higher as all of the properties in this area have increased in value considerably- Plus I just had the home painted, had a new carport built for my boat, poured a new exposed aggregate patio and a new heating system: Coleman heat pump with A/C and emergency heat. It is a waterfront home and a much older and smaller home just went on the market for $560,000.

Expert Answer

Hi Norman,

I see no question here but if you are wondering if you can refinance your loan, you might be able to.  The only way to know for sure under the current HUD parameters is to visit our Hecm Refinance Calculator and check to see if a refinance would work for you.  We will pull up sales in your area of similar homes (no just listings since a listing will not support a value for lending purposes) and also take a look at the costs and use the other information you supply (not a lot, just your ages, the zip code where the property is located and the balance on your current loan) to see if a refinance at this time would work for you.  It’s quick and no hassle or obligation.  Come visit us and see if a refinance is right for you.

Question From Salty on 6/21/2018

New assessment $700K+ Current reverse mortgage ends this year at around $350K. A accelerated draw to pay taxes and insurance has maxed me out early. I don't expect to live more than a year or two. How can I draw more equity to pay taxes, insurance, and utilities so I can stay in my home that has been my only income except for $500 per month for years. Town assessor estimates 8.8% increase in valuation for 2018.

Expert Answer

Hello Salty,

The higher value would help, especially if you received your original loan a while ago when the HUD lending limits were lower.  The only way to know for sure would be to run your circumstances through my online, real-time calculator to see if a new loan would be beneficial for you. Check it out our online calculator to see if a refinance would be in your best interest and how much money you would receive. 

If it would not work for you, there are still options, but that would require a sale and a downsize to a less expensive home, financing them with a new reverse mortgage.   I would suggest that you check on the refi first if your current home still meets all your needs and it is your desire to remain in that home.

Question From Chuck on 6/12/2018

My wife is, 61 and we have a home appraised at $1,400,00 00 we owe, $375.00. Can we do a reverse mortgage and insure it to pay off the reverse amount drawn out when we both die ?

Expert Answer

Hi Chuck,

You did not tell me what your age is or when your wife turns 62.  If you are over 62, you would really be better served if you could wait until she is also 62 and she will also be on the loan.  If you are also under 62, that would make both of you ineligible at this time.  My suggestion would be for you to visit our free, no hassle online calculator and there you can get some real-time figures and see what you can expect to receive.  There is no obligation and no one will pressure you to do anything.

Question From Cheryl H. on 6/07/2018

My husband is 65, and I am 57. Can my husband refinance a reverse mortgage loan when I'm 62? Also if he dies, can I still get funds from the loan to pay my obligations, and stay in the house?

Expert Answer

Hi Cheryl,

If he does a refinance with you on the loan after you turn 62, you would have access to the loan.  If not, you are considered a non-borrowing spouse and while if you are an eligible non-borrowing spouse you can remain in the home for as long as you live and abide by the terms of the loan as well, you would not have access to the reverse mortgage loan itself.

Question From Sheila G. on 6/04/2018

Hello, I was wondering once you get a reverse mortgage and hold it for yrs, can you ever get more money from it? Does the value go up for your home? Must be once and done!

Expert Answer

Hi Sheila,

The line of credit grows on the unused portion so if you don’t use all the money available to you, the line grows and there is more money available as time goes on, whether the value of the property goes up or not.  However, if you use all the funds available to you so that there is no line growth, the only way to get additional funds after that would be to refinance the loan.  To do that, you would have to meet the new parameters based on the then-current guidelines, your age and the property value at that time.

Question From Bill T. on 5/31/2018

I would like to increase my reverse mortgage the value has gone up $100,00 why can I only get 13,500 more?

Expert Answer

Hi Bill,

There are a number of factors that go into the HUD calculations to determine how much money borrowers receive.  Any new loan has to also pay off any accrued interest and depending on how long you have had your loan and how much money you took on the line, you may have accrued a small or large amount of interest.

Also, HUD has changed the program in recent years so that borrowers now receive less money as a percentage of the value than in the past. When you add this to the fact the interest rates have risen and borrowers receive less money with higher rates, refinances of reverse mortgage loans becomes increasingly difficult even when the value increases.

Question From Charles R. on 5/08/2018

I have a reverse mortgage with my mother she just pass away i live with my wife how can i put her on my reverse mortgage in the event i pass away we live alone in the house iam 77 years old my wife is 65 Both retired dont want to leave her out on the street.

Expert Answer

Hi Charles,

Unfortunately there is no provision to add new borrowers to existing loans.  The program would not work if you could keep adding borrowers to the loan after the benefits had been calculated based on known actuarial tables.

You can however refinance the loan with a new reverse mortgage refinance in both your names. You need to know though that since you had the last loan with your mom, you had to be the younger borrower and now that your spouse is 12 years younger than you, the available Principal Limit or loan amount may be less than when the first loan was closed depending on what the value was then versus what it is now.

The only way to know for sure is to visit my online calculator and see the results for your information.   It's free and doesn't take much time. I don't need your personal information, just month and year of birth, property value, zip code and a little info from your most recent reverse mortgage statement in the case of a reverse mortgage refinance.  Come take a look, it might work well for you!

Question From Larry on 4/10/2018

Hello, my question. Can I be put on the title of my mother’s home while it’s on a reverse mortgage? With the full intent of refinancing at a later time into a VA loan?

Expert Answer

Hi Larry,

When it comes to adding people to title after the reverse mortgage has been completed, the loan documents specifically address this issue and are very clear.  As long as mom is still on title as well and continues to live in the home as her primary residence, she can add you to title with no adverse effect whatsoever.  Regardless of what your intent is later, as long as mom is still living in the home and the title is not changed so that she is removed (you are just added in addition to), the loan would not be in default.

Question From Linda A. on 3/28/2018

I did a reverse mortgage on my home a few years ago and the property has increased in value since then and I wondered if I could do another reverse finance with another finance company and get more for my house due to it's current value?

Expert Answer

Hi Linda,

HUD has certain rules regarding refinances that you must meet but if you do and the loan makes sense for you, you can refinance your reverse mortgage with a new reverse mortgage.  You can visit our online hecm refinance calculator to determine if a refinance under the current parameters would work for you.

Question From Larry K. on 3/26/2018

I have a reverse mortgage. It is solely in my name. My only concern is my wife having to leave the home in the event of my death. Refinancing will not work in my case. Is there any option open to me. Thanks in advance

Expert Answer

Hello Larry,

If your loan was originated after 2014 and your wife is an “eligible non-borrowing spouse”, meaning they took her age into consideration when they determined the benefit amount, then she can still stay in the home for life even after your passing.  If you received your loan prior to that time and her age was not considered, then the only way to keep the loan after you pass with just her on the loan would be to refinance. 

Since you have already stated that refinancing is not an option, there are a couple of other courses other borrowers have taken.  Some have chosen to sell their homes and buy using a reverse mortgage on the new home purchase.  If your spouse is over 62 now she can be on the loan or at worst, she can be an eligible non-borrowing spouse and either way, she can stay in the home for life just by meeting the same criteria as you (live in the property as her primary residence, pay the taxes and insurance, etc.).  This might be a good way for you to find a home that meets any special needs that your current home does not (single story, closer to family, downsize if your current home is too large, etc.) and you would be able to use a reverse mortgage to purchase the next home.

The next option that one borrower with a non-eligible, non-borrowing spouse described to me is an insurance policy he obtained to cover all or a portion of the current loan so that his spouse can either pay off or down the existing loan.  This plan would require that you are eligible for insurance at this time but you may not need as much as you think.  You might not have to  have a policy great enough to pay off the entire balance of the reverse mortgage but rather only the shortfall of whatever would be needed so that your wife would be able to refinance into a reverse mortgage in her name.  I think this is a tougher target to hit with real estate values, interest rates and HUD changes all being moving targets, but he felt that the worst case was he would leave his spouse with cash if for any reason he miscalculated and the best case was that  his spouse could refinance the reverse mortgage in her name with the insurance proceeds paying any necessary shortfall at the time.

Question From Michael L. on 3/03/2018

This is complicated and I hope you can follow. I fear that I am kicked to the curb thirty days after my handicapped wife either passes or must vacate for medical reasons. I'm also wondering if we have additional funds available since the house now appraises for over $900,000 (initial appraisal was set at $625,000).At the beginning of our (2014) R.M., equity was $300,000 and $325,000 was still owed. We now owe $410,000 and money available is ($84.00).Can we seek a second "R.M." and thus benefit from the run-up in real estate prices (we live in Westchester, CA (near LAX).You should also know that although I've lived with my wife prior to our initial RM, we did not get married until after the RM (dumb me, huh)?

Expert Answer

Hi Michael,

I follow you completely and the answers all depend on circumstances.  Are you on title to the property?  I gather from your post that you were not at the time of the loan but there is no reason you cannot be added at this time which would secure your position in the home.  It would not, however, keep the lender from calling the loan due and payable if your wife were to pass.  To be certain you could live in the home for life would require that you refinance the current loan with both your names on the title (if you are over 62, you would also be on the loan) and then there would be no problems.  The HUD lending limit has gone up to $679,650 but HUD has also lowered the amounts they give to reverse mortgage borrowers as a percentage of the home’s value since then so I do not know how when combined with interest that has accrued and your current ages, that will even out.

Question From Linda G. on 2/22/2018

When I was 62, I applied for and received a reverse mortgage from AAG. There is no other mortgage attached. I was required to remove my spouse from the title. Now that he is 62 can he be added back to the title without consequence? With his name on the title, will he be allowed to live in the home until his death or will he be required to refinance or sell within 90 days as it says in the reverse mortgage agreement with AAG?

Expert Answer

Hi Linda,

The answer to the first question is easy.  You can add your spouse back to title at any time without consequence and I would suggest that you do so as soon as you are able.  The documents state that as long as you remain on title, you can add others as well, you just can’t change title in a way where you are no longer on title as well (and you must continue to live in the home). 

The second half of this I could not answer without looking at your loan documents.  If you closed the loan within the past 2 years, your spouse is probably an “eligible non-borrowing spouse” and in that case, as long as he has been living in the home and continues to do so, with the title in his name as well, he can live in the home for the rest of his life even if something were to happen to you.  If however you closed this loan before HUD changed to the rules and started considering the ages of the non-borrowing spouses and had the eligible non-borrowing spouse designation, then once you were no longer living in the home, the loan would become due and payable forcing your spouse to refinance the loan, pay the loan off with other funds or sell the home.  If the spouse is not an eligible non-borrowing spouse and you wish to now refinance to add your spouse, you would have to meet the current HUD guidelines and you can visit our hecm refinance calculator and it will tell you whether or not you would meet the HUD requirements for a refinance.

Question From Julie R. on 2/05/2018

My husband took out a loan in 2008 and I was not old enough for the loan can we reference the home and put my name on the deed so I can live there if he goes before me; I ask this one day last week and never got an answer.

Expert Answer

Hi Julie,

You and your husband can refinance the loan at this time, whether you are now over 62 or not and you would receive protection either as a reverse mortgage borrower (if you are over 62) or as an eligible non-borrowing spouse (if you are still under the age of 62).  The biggest concerns that might impact you are the value and the amount you owe on the first loan.  If you are contemplating a loan now, if your value has not risen, you could have a difficult time receiving enough money on the new loan to cover all the amounts owed on the existing mortgage.  However, since 2008, the maximum lending limit has risen dramatically from $417,000 to $679,650 so if your home value is near the top of the range or if it has risen from the time the first loan was obtained, you may be ok with the new limits.  Either way though, you won’t know until you check!

Question From Norma on 1/29/2018

My mother in law took a reverse mortgage when property levels were low now property has probably another 100,000 in equity is she able to take additional equity out of it? her loan is wells fargo. or does she need to refinance it?

Expert Answer

Hi Norma,

She can take any money available to her up to the limits of the original loan.  If she had a line of credit available to her from which she has not drawn, her available loan amount has also grown and she can take that money at any time.  If there are no additional funds available on that loan, just like any other loan, to be able to take more money now above and beyond the original limits would require a refinance of the loan.

Question From PAM C. on 1/29/2018

IF YOU HAVE JUST REFINANCED YOUR HOME LIKE 3 YEARS AGO CAN YOU STILL QUALIFY?

Expert Answer

Hi Pam,

As long as the loan meets the minimum HUD requirements for minimum benefits to the borrower(s), 3 years is fine to do the loan now.  18 months is the minimum time you must wait before doing a refinance of an existing reverse mortgage, 12 months if you are refinancing a forward or traditional mortgage in which you took cash out on that loan and there really is no waiting period to pay off a traditional forward mortgage on which you received no cash out of the transaction (including payoff of debts because that is considered cash out).

Question From Darlene M. on 1/11/2018

What is the MIP rate on a refinance of reverse mortgage?

Expert Answer

Hi Darlene,

The MIP rate would depend on when the Case Number was obtained and under what parameters your loan is being originated.  For example, loans with Case numbers issued prior to October 1, 2017 are still are the higher amounts and the renewal premium is 1.25% of the outstanding balance.  Case numbers obtained after this time would receive less benefits available as HUD changed the program but the initial MIP would likely be higher (depending on the amount of the line used in the first 12 months and how much was paid on the first HECM Loan closed) but then the renewal MIP would be at a reduced rate of .50% of the outstanding balance. 

It’s a bit complicated to go through in a short blog question but if you contact our office, we would be happy to determine which benefits pertain to your circumstances and give you the exact numbers.

Question From Sonja H. on 1/04/2018

I got a reverse mortgage in 1985. due to high medical bills i need to look into maybe trying to refi my reverse mortgage if possible. when i got my reverse mortgage i had them pay off my house. so that leaves me with a zero balance as far as the house is concerned, correct? where im confused on your calculater is i can answer all of the questions but i dont know how to answer the one that asks what the balance of my house is. so when they paid if off that means i would put in 0 right? and how can i find out how much equityhas built up since 1985 when i originally took the reverse mortgage?

Expert Answer

Hi Sonja,

The reverse mortgage is a loan just like any other loan.  If you took out a reverse mortgage in 1985, you paid off any other loans at that time but you do have the reverse mortgage and the balance owed would be the amount that the lender shows on your monthly statement.  To determine if a refinance is in your best interest now, take a look at your most recent statement and use the total outstanding balance when asked what the loan balance is for the calculation.  Also, check your statement to be sure that you don’t have any money left on your current line of credit.

If you are still unsure as to what numbers to input, please don’t hesitate to call our office at 800-565-1722 and we will be more than happy to run those numbers for you.  Same no obligation, no hassle service and we will not push you for a lot of personal information we don’t need just to give you an answer.  Let us know if we can help.

Question From Ida l. on 11/28/2017

My mom has a current reverse mortgage can a daughter refinance the home to keep it?

Expert Answer

Hello Ida,

Of course you can.  Your mom owns the home and she would have to deed the property over to you to enable you to obtain a loan (no lender will lend to you using a property for security that is in someone else’s name), but she can certainly do so if that is her desire.  In fact, once parents with a reverse mortgage pass, the children or heirs often seek financing to refinance the loan in their names to keep the home at that time as well.  There is no reason you can’t do it sooner if that is what you and mom would like to do.

Hi Bob,

A borrower with a reverse mortgage, just like any other loan, has always been free to refinance through any lender of choice, you are not restricted to going back through your existing lender.  The only restrictions you have are those HUD places on all borrowers/lenders to ensure that the refinance loan makes sense and is in the borrower's best interest.

Question From Patsy Ann T. on 9/04/2017

My property value has increased. I currently have a Reverse mortgage. I have been receiving letters saying I can get more from my RM. Is that true?

Expert Answer

Hi Patsy,

It is "possible", but I always warn borrowers that the combination of the interest you are accruing as well as HUD requirements make a refinance much more difficult than many of the letters make it sound.  Another thing is that HUD just cut way back on the program so effective with all loans starting on October 2, 2017, refinancing to receive more money will be even more difficult and almost impossible for most borrowers.  If you are considering it, check the numbers soon because after this month, it will be a whole lot harder.

Question From Wayne on 7/02/2017

I have recently read that the maximum loan amount on reverse mortgages has been raised. Do you have any information on this?

Expert Answer

Hello Wayne,

HUD did raise the limit a few months back but it was not a huge raise.  HUD issued Mortgagee Letter 2016-19 on December 1, 2016 which raised the limit from $625,000 to $636,150 effective with all case numbers assigned on January 1st 2017 and after.  The property has to 1) be valued over $625,000 or the increase does not affect you and 2) you only receive the percentage of the increase that you receive as a percentage of the value based on your age under the program.  In other words, at this point in time a 62 year old borrower receives 52% of their value for properties valued at or below the HUD maximum lending limit, minus the costs to receive the loan, so the increase to borrowers would be their respective benefit amount based on the age of the youngest borrower.

The increase if not a big one from the standpoint that it will not place a lot of extra funds at your disposal, is a big deal from the standpoint that it is the first increase in the limit since 2009.  So although the increase was not significant in the terms of dollars raised, it is very significant in the terms of an increase in limits that was not the result of a stimulus package or other perceived "emergency" measure.

Question From Fayed on 6/23/2017

Is there a waiting period between getting a reverse mortgage and then refinancing it?

Expert Answer

Hello Fayed,

HUD does not have any set waiting period but the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA) and all the reputable companies approved through them do recognize an 18 month period during which the lender may not refinance the loan except for extenuating circumstances.  Unfortunately, some originators in both the forward and reverse mortgage markets participate in a process known as refinance "churning" that hurts seniors by stripping the equity if they keep charging fees.

Some originators try to justify their actions by telling borrowers that they will cover the costs of the loan and therefore the equity is not unduly under assault, but what they don't tell you is that those investors who purchase the loans in the secondary market see the loans paying off rapidly and then the pricing for the loans becomes much less favorable.  The result?  The rates and fees start to rise as the investment in the mortgage backed securities becomes a less favorable one and all borrowers pay higher costs all around on every new loan closed.  Those originators still try to churn the same loans over and over and all borrowers wind up paying higher fees and rates and never even know why.

Reverse mortgages are nowhere near the size market as the forward mortgage market and the churning was taking a toll.  NRMLA saw the harm this was doing to borrowers in the long run just so that some originators could continually churn refinances and determined that an 18 month restriction on refinances was needed to ensure the secondary market would be available for all borrowers in the future.  If you feel that you truly have extenuating circumstances though, you can still check to see if you can do your refinance at this time if it has been less than 18 months since you closed your loan.

Can I refinance my reverse mortgage to get equity out of it. I'm in a condo and the HOA has let the FHA lapse. I've heard they were bringing back spot financing. Can you help me

Expert Answer

Hi Christine,

HUD does allow refinances as long as the benefit to the borrower meets their requirements.  And yes, the word is that they will be changing the condominium approval requirements but that has not happened as of this time and we are not sure if it will take place before they make their year end changes next September.  There was some talk of it happening in April but it never materialized so we know there is a push to make it happen, just don't have the particulars or timing yet.

The mortgage insurance premium or MIP would not be eliminated with the refinance.  All of the HUD Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM or "Heck-um") require the MIP until the loan is paid in full.  Refinancing the loan would pay the first loan off but would start a new loan which would also require FHA/HUD Mortgage insurance.  The only way to eliminate this charge entirely would be to pay the loan off without starting a new reverse mortgage loan.  Whether or not the refinance would actually benefit your rate would be a question of comparison but rates have risen in the past 18 months, they have not dropped so I don't know if a refinance will help you there either. 

However, the only way you will know for sure is to request a proposal.  When checking about the viability of refinancing an existing reverse mortgage, the lender needs the usual information but also needs a copy of your current reverse mortgage monthly statement and it really helps if you have a copy of the closing statement from when you closed that loan.  The information we need to determine if you meet all the HUD requirements can be found on those two documents as well as in public records and we will be able to let you know if a refinance will work for you.

Question From Jennifer M. on 4/27/2017

I am an adult disabled child currently living with my mother who has a reverse mortgage. I only recently became aware of the situation. She recently broke both her ankles so i had to take on a much larger role. Due to both of our financial and health situations it is probably best for us to remain living together. My mom is having money problems and I dont know if she can refi her reverse mortgage to tap into more equity to pay off her her debt. Or if we could convert it into a regular mortgage. The current estimated value of the house is 250000. The pay off of her current reverse is 109000.

Expert Answer

Hi Jennifer,

I would need more information to determine whether or not mom is eligible for a refinance of her HECM loan, I would invite you to visit our website and request a free- no obligation quote based on all the factors.  I would caution you though, if something happens to mom, the loan would become due and payable and this is something that both of you should consider since it might affect your future living arrangements if you are not able to refinance the loan later and would have to sell the house and move at that time.

I owe money and they want to foreclose due to taxes is it possible to refinance there is no more equity left on home facing foreclosure making payments will refinance help me out of foreclosure.

Expert Answer

Hi Linda,

I'm not sure how to answer this because I'm not really sure I understand your circumstances.  Are you saying that you have a reverse mortgage now?  And if you are making payments, to whom are those payments being made?  The refinance is not your safety net because if you've been delinquent on taxes, HUD now requires a set aside to pay the taxes and insurance and if you're telling me you have no equity in the home, you would not qualify for the new reverse mortgage plus the Life Expectancy Set Aside (LESA).  However, if you are paying the taxes and are on a bona fide repayment schedule, my advice would be to contact your servicer and make sure that HUD is also aware of the fact that you are bringing your taxes current by agreement.  I don't know your circumstances and cannot speak for your lender or for HUD but I have seen borrowers enter into repayment agreements to catch up on the taxes in other circumstances in lieu of foreclosure and it just might work for you as well.

Question From Lana A. on 2/02/2017

I already have a Reverse Mortgage, but was wanting to see if I was able to get more out of my home by doing a Re-Fi ?

Expert Answer

Hi Lana,

HUD does allow for this under certain circumstances.  The only way to know for sure is if you send your current statement, the age(s) of the borrower(s) to us and let us pull some sales from your area to determine if the refinance will work for you.  HUD requires that the benefit of doing the new loan is great enough when compared to the costs and the only way we can tell you for sure is by having all the information which also includes the new appraisal but we can usually get a pretty good idea just by looking at the recent sales in your area.

If you would like us to check, you can always scan and email the current statement, fax it to us at (800) 565-1968 or give us a call and we will take the information over the phone.  Any way you choose, we are not a high-pressure lender, if we can do it we can usually do them at drastically reduced fees and if it works out for you great but if not or if you change your mind, we won't be pressing you to do the loan anyway!

Question From Delilah D. on 1/31/2017

If I refinance my reverse mortgage, am I entitled to part of my mortgage insurance back?

Expert Answer

Hi Delilah,

If you refinance your reverse mortgage with another reverse mortgage, you will get a credit for the entire portion of the initial mortgage insurance premium that you paid and it will go toward the new loan.  For example, if you paid $5,000 initial premium on your first reverse mortgage and the second reverse mortgage would be $6,000 under the normal premium guidelines, you would receive a $5,000 credit of the amount already paid and your premium on the new loan would be just $1,000.  If however the new premium amount is less than the old amount you originally paid, then there is no additional credit but you would not have to pay the initial premium a second time.

Question From Tom on 12/15/2016

I have a reverse mortgage and right now the outstanding balance is $193,000. We are planning on selling our home and moving closer to our children. I am 79 and my wife is 75. We live in Oregon. We found another home for $244,000. Can we purchase this home with another reverse mortgage when we pay off our current mortgage? Also, I would like to know if it is possible to put 20% down on this property.

Expert Answer

Hi Tom,

Once you sell your current home and pay off the reverse mortgage that you have now, you can get another reverse mortgage on another property.  The amount that you will qualify for will be the same percentages that borrowers refinancing receive, the only difference will be that you will have access to 100% of the Principal Limit or loan amount to use for the purchase.  However, that Principal limit will be about 61.4% of the purchase price of the home or the appraised value based on the ages you supplied, whichever is less and then there will also be the costs of the purchase and loan.  So yes you can get the loan, but it will not be for 80% of the purchase price.

If this still sounds like something you think you might want to explore, my suggestion is to obtain a proposal based specifically on your circumstances and the costs in your area and then determine if it makes sense for you.

HUD has some very specific requirements in order to do what is called a HECM to HECM refinance (in other words, a refinance of your current HUD Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or HECM with a new HECM loan).  To be able to determine whether or not you would meet these parameters, we would need to see your most recent statement on the existing loan and from there, we can see if a HECM to HECM is possible.  Can you send us a copy either by scan and email, fax or even a picture with a smart phone?

Yes this is what is called a reverse mortgage refinance.

My mother has a reverse mortgage and it was 400,000 she had a new air conditioner, roof repaired and was paying $1800. a week for around the clock help. she has no money and lives with Alzheimers but i heard she can refinance her aag reverse mortgage how and i need a lawyer to help.

Expert Answer

Hi Robert,

The HUD rules are very explicit on the refi of an existing reverse mortgage and you would have to request a proposal from us to see if your mom would even benefit from a refinance at this time based on what she obtained, what she owes and what the new benefits would be based on current program parameters.  With a balance of $400,000+, I would not lie to you, not many borrowers will qualify for a refinance at this time.

Also, we can discuss the legal requirements to be able to do the loan and it would depend on whether or not mom had a power of attorney to you prior to the onset of the illness.  If not, it would take a court appointed conservatorship to proceed and for that, you probably would want to seek the assistance of competent legal counsel.

Question From Helen on 7/01/2016

My dad got a reverse mortgage back in 2010 in california. Hes the only one on it because my mom was under 62. Can my mom who is 56 be added on? They got a phone call from a company saying she can be added on if the house value met a certain number. Is that even possible? I called the mortgage company that my parents are under and they said its just a way to refiance the house that my mom can't be added.

Expert Answer

No one can be added to an existing reverse mortgage.  If your mom is over the age of 62, they can refinance and add her on the loan as another borrower but if she is not, they will now consider her a "qualified non-borrowing spouse".  This is good and potential bad in this.  The good is that a qualified non-borrowing spouse does not have to leave the home if something happens to the borrower.  The potential bad is that they will also take her age into consideration now since she can live there for the rest of her life as well and the amount available under the loan will be far less for a borrower who is not yet 62 than it was previously for a borrower over the age of 62.  If your dad took out the maximum amount of cash and has accrued interest on the loan, chances are good that unless the values have increased dramatically and still remain under the HUD maximum lending limit of $625,500, there will not be enough benefit in the refinance proceeds to pay off the existing mortgage.

The only way to know for certain is to request a no-obligation proposal based all of the current information at reverse.mortgage.

When we took our reverse mortgage our home. Was a praised at $200,000. Now it is appraised at $300,000.00. Can we get more $$$

Expert Answer

Hi Jon,

Very possibly, but the only way to know for sure is to look at the full picture which would include verifying the benefits you received on the first loan compared to what you would receive with a refinance.  All you need to do is send us a copy of your current statement, your birth date (or birthdates if more than one borrower) and let us see if the numbers work out for you. 

It doesn't cost anything to run the numbers and it is a no pressure, no obligation inquiry.  We would be happy to let you know what you can expect with a refinance of your current reverse mortgage.

Question From Nancy on 5/25/2016

Hi - Can I refinance a reverse mortgage with another company for better rates and what happens when the homes equity runs out can you still live in the house?

Expert Answer

Hi Nancy,

HUD has requirements that must be met in order to be able to refinance the loan meant to protect borrowers from refinance churning that might result in equity stripping of the home on repetitive fees on multiple refinances, etc. but as long as you meet the parameters, yes, you can refinance a reverse mortgage with another reverse mortgage (and you can always refinance with a standard or forward loan at any time without prepayment penalties if your circumstances changes and you decide that is a better way for you to go as well).

Borrowers can live in their home mortgage payment free, regardless of what property values and equity positions do.  If your equity runs out or the values drop, you can still live in the home and you still have access to all the funds guaranteed in your line of credit under the program as long as you continue to meet the program requirements (at least one original borrower still lives in the home as their permanent residence, you pay your taxes and insurance in a timely manner and you maintain the property).

Hi Angela,

There are tests or restrictions that must be met but you can refinance a reverse mortgage if you do meet the requirements.  The new loan must provide the borrower adequate benefits.  Those benefits can vary based on circumstances though so you really need to check with a lender to determine whether or not your loan would be eligible.

Question From Jim Lyons on 3/16/2016

We have an existing reverse mortgage. Can you replace it with a better deal?

Expert Answer

Hi Jim,

That's a loaded question if ever I have heard one!  Just like "beauty being in the eye of the beholder", "better" is dependent on your wants and needs and what you consider a better deal.  Reverse Mortgages can be refinanced, whether or not it's a better deal that what you currently have would depend on in what area you were trying to better your circumstances.  HUD will not even let us refinance an existing reverse mortgage unless it meets a number of tests that benefit the borrower.  Whether or not you would meet those tests will depend on when you closed, what the value was at the time and what it is now and also what the HUD maximum lending limit was at that time. 

Then you have to look at the rates that you received then versus the market today (including the HUD mortgage insurance renewal premium if that has changed) and make the determination of whether or not it is a better deal for your circumstances with regards to rates.  Or maybe for you, better is just being able to access more funds or a higher monthly payment.  Or perhaps better is allowing a previously non-borrowing spouse who was too young to be able to get on the loan.  There are a number of circumstances that could make it "better" for you at this time.

The bottom line is that HUD does allow the loan to be refinanced under certain circumstances but you have to put in a request for a proposal to see whether or not you meet the HUD requirements and whether those terms and circumstances are better for you based on your desired goals.  It doesn't cost a dime and if you choose a company like ours that is not high pressure and is only looking to be certain your needs are taken care of, we'll be happy to tell you what we can and cannot do from the start and you can make an educated decision.

Question From Gloria on 3/10/2016

Can an existing reverse mortgage be redone if the property goes up significantly in value?

Expert Answer

Hi Gloria,

Yes, you can refinance an existing reverse mortgage loan but there are other considerations that you and the lender must keep in mind other than just the increase in value.  The biggest things to remember are that the new loan cannot be started within 18 months of the close of the old loan and there are certain tests that the loan will have to meet to be certain that the benefits are great enough for the borrower.  Your lender can run the numbers for you quickly but to do so, they will need you to have your current reverse mortgage statement available.  If the loan meets the required tests in order to be originated, they can let you know very quickly.

Question From Jeanne L on 1/03/2016

I keep getting these letters in the mail saying that i have more money in my home, but when i call they say no, but don't tell me why

Expert Answer

Hi Jeanne,

The answer is simple and I don't know why they would not tell you on the phone when you called.  The people who send out all those cards and letters are just doing a mass-mailing and they do not know who does and who does not qualify when they go out, they just pull your name and address from public records and know that you have a reverse mortgage from the Deed or Mortgage that recorded with the loan.

The same ad goes to all the borrowers in a given area and like a fishing expedition, they keep throwing their line in the water and hope they get a bite!

To let you know if you qualify, you have to have had your current loan for 18 months or longer and have enough equity in the property so that the new loan will get you a certain amount of money based on the cost to do the loan.  If the equity is not there or the cost is too great to do the loan, then lenders cannot do a new loan and they can tell you that within a few minutes.

Question From Michael H. on 11/06/2015

We already have a Reverse mortgage. As our home is apparently increasing in value, we are considering refinancing the Reverse with another in order to gain greater proportion of equity. According to your web site, your fees, etc, etc, are less than other Reverse lenders, which implies that there are financial differences between you. I would have thought that any lender offering a government program would charge the same as their competitors, seemingly this is is not true, or is it?

Expert Answer

HUD does set a maximum that lenders can charge for the loan, but that is the only involvement or limitation on the pricing that they have.  Each lender sets their own pricing based on the cost of their funds, their operation, required profit margins, etc.  It is always prudent to compare and shop between different companies to see the best possible pricing you can get.  I also recommend that you do a simple internet search once you are considering a few different lenders.  Just the phrase "... lender complaints" with the lender's name at the front may tell you volumes about the companies with whom you are considering working. 

Not all lenders are created equal, even if they are offering the same FHA-insured loan!  If one lender can save you thousands of dollars and maybe a lot of grief as well, it might be worth 5 minutes of research in the beginning.  We would love to have you compare our rates and fees to anyone.

It's not that it is all that difficult, you just have to have enough equity and many borrowers have not seen enough appreciation in their homes yet to make it work (especially since the amounts borrowers receive under the program have been reduced in recent years).  It doesn't hurt and it doesn't cost a dime to go online and see that the calculator says for your potential benefits and then you can decide it it's worth pursuing further from there!

Thanks, CB landers

Expert Answer

Hi Carole,

I'm sorry for your loss.  The actual answer is yes, you can refinance and can get more money, but the value has to have gone up enough to where the value will support the new mortgage and give you new benefits of at least 5 times the cost of the loan.  For example, if the cost of the new loan is $5,000 (and you do not have to pay the amount of the initial mortgage insurance premium that you have already paid), then the new loan must net you at least $25,000 in additional benefits.  Otherwise HUD considers the loan not to be adequate benefit for the borrower and will not let us do the refinance.  If you can send us a copy of your most recent statement along with your date of birth and the date that you took out the first reverse mortgage, we can determine if there is a possibility of doing the refinance.

Question From George on 5/26/2014

If i get a reverse mortgage for a certain amount and then the value of the home increases considerably, can i refinance?

Expert Answer

Hi George,

Yes you can and the Initial Mortgage Insurance Premium (IMIP) that you paid for the first loan does not have to be paid again on the refinance.  You would be responsible to pay the difference between the higher amount on the new value and what you had already paid, but you would not have to pay the portion you had already paid a second time.  For example, if your IMIP on the initial loan was $6,000 but because the new value was so much higher, the new IMIP is $9,000, you would not have to pay the $6,000 that you had already paid, but would only be responsible for the difference of $3,000.

I do need to let you know that HUD has a rule that is known as the "5 Times Benefit Rule".  In short, it means that HUD will not allow lenders to do refinances for you unless the benefit to you for the new loan nets you 5 times or more the costs to get the loan.  This is done for a specific reason, HUD does not want people contacting reverse mortgage borrowers to try to get them to constantly churn refinances that do little or no good for them.  This way the loan must make sense for the borrower or it cannot be done. 

Some other things to keep in mind are maximum lending limits, interest rates in effect at the time, other HUD parameters, etc.  There may be a variety of reasons that would not make a refinance a benefit or even a possibility and you should not go into the transaction thinking that the refinance is a given.  We absolutely do them and during times of appreciation or when HUD raises the lending limits, they have been more plentiful than at other times.  Conversely, when rates rise, HUD cuts the limits back or the values drop, fewer borrowers will qualify for a refinance.  Just know that the answer is yes, you can always refinance the loan if the equity is there and the benefits are there, but you have to go into the loan not counting on a subsequent refinance as too many things can change in the future.

Question From Lisa on 3/18/2014

Good morning, I am wondering about a refinance on a reverse. My parents have a reverse mortgage. they obtained it about 7 or 8 years ago. The original bank sold the mortgage to another company, that company was to help my parents because they were in need of help with their taxes, they said "oh yes, we will pay them and you will only need to make arrangements to repay a small amount each month to pay that back" I never heard anything about if they did or not but evidently they did not help them. Now the home is in danger due to the taxes, can they obtain refinance to help them not loose the home? Please help me with an answer asap. They live in Howell NJ.

Expert Answer

Hi Lisa,

HUD has some definite requirements that lenders have to meet in order to be able to offer a refinance of a reverse mortgage and many properties do not qualify because they have not gone up in value enough from when the loan was originally closed to where it makes economic sense (let alone meet the HUD requirements).  However, depending on where your parents' home is, what the value is now, what it was when they took out their loan and what the HUD lending limits were at the time, a refinance may just work for them.

The lending limits changed for reverse mortgages for the first major time in 2008 with the Home Economic Recovery Act (HERA).  Prior to 2008, HUD had different lending limits by county all over the nation and some of the limits were much lower.  Even in the highest counties, prior to HERA, the highest lending limit was $362,790 (except for some high cost areas like Alaska and Hawaii and this would not affect your parents).  So if your parents' home was worth and continues to be valued above the limits in effect at that time, there is a possibility that a refinance may work for them.  The only way to know for sure is to contact us and let us look at the current balance on their loan, the property values in the area and do a quick analysis.  You never know until you check.

Question From Jim on 12/06/2011

Is it possible to refinance a reverse mortgage?

Expert Answer

A reverse mortgage can be refinanced but only if the loan meets certain benefit tests for the borrower. HUD will not allow originators to refinance reverse mortgages for little to no benefits for the borrowers. If you are unsure if you would derive adequate benefits to refinance your reverse mortgage, you can contact a reverse mortgage specialist and with just a small amount of information, they can let you know. You would need to have your current statement as there is information on it that they will need; a copy of your closing statement from your existing reverse mortgage is extremely helpful as he/she will need to know how much Up Front Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP) you paid on the first closing, and an approximate value of your home.

At that point, they can run the numbers and determine if the refinance is even in your best interest. Remember, some costs like the amount of UFMIP that you already paid would not have to be paid again, but you would have to pay title fees and other closing costs and depending on the area in which you live and the value of your property, these can still add up to more than $5,000 in some parts of the country on higher valued properties. A quick review does not cost you anything and at that point you would know if it makes sense for you.
