What is a Reverse Mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is an increasingly popular consumer loan for Canadian homeowners age 55+. Reverse mortgages in London, Ontario allow homeowners to tap into the home equity they have built up in their homes. There are no monthly mortgage payments, but homeowners are still responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, and maintenance.
The loan repayment is deferred until the homeowner passes away, sells or moves out of the home. Because there are no monthly mortgage payments and homeowners can receive their home equity as tax-free cash, tens of thousands of Canadian homeowners have taken out a reverse mortgage.
