Reverse Mortgage Loan


What is a reverse mortgage?

A reverse mortgage is one in which a lender makes a monthly payment to the homeowner. These amounts, plus accumulated interest, are backed by a mortgage on the property. The lender is repaid in full when the property is sold or exchanges hands.

What is the City's program?

The City's program is a modified reverse mortgage because the City makes the program available only to pay all or a portion of a homeowner's property taxes. No monthly payments for living expenses are allowed.
