What to look for in a Reverse Mortgage Lender?

One of the most important decisions you’ll make about a Reverse Mortgage loan is which lender to choose. This decision may have a long- term impact on you and your family, so it’s crucial you get this right.

9 things to look for in your Reverse Mortgage provider:

Multiple draw down options

Ideally your Reverse Mortgage provider will offer different draw down options to cater for every need; a lump sum up front, regular ongoing advances (monthly, quarterly or annually), and a ‘cash reserve’facility for future access to funds.

Ability to repay, with no penalty

Your circumstances can change at any time. So it’s important your Reverse Mortgage lender does not require regular payments but still allows you to make repayments if you wish. Reverse Mortgage debt is usually repaid from the future sale of your property so ensure your lender allows this without any penalty.

Aged care option

Some Reverse Mortgage lenders will not provide funding where the borrower no longer resides in the home. This can be a real problem for those already in a nursing home, or people who may need aged care in future. Check that your lender offers an aged care option.

Flexible criteria

Search for a Reverse Mortgage provider with flexible criteria when it comes to minimum age, Loan to Value Ratio as well as minimum and maximum loan amounts. This can be important as some Reverse Mortgage lenders have caps on how much home equity can be released for cash.

Customer protection

You should be comfortable with your decision to borrow via a Reverse Mortgage loan. Find a Reverse Mortgage lender who offers lifetime occupancy so you continue to enjoy any increase in property value. The presence of a ‘No Negative Equity Guarantee’ and the requirement for independent legal advice indicate that the provider is a genuine Reverse Mortgage lender.

Equity protection option

Look for Reverse Mortgage lenders who offer an Equity Protection Option. This feature allows you to ‘quarantine’ a percentage of the eventual sale proceeds of your home (you or your estate are then guaranteed to receive a minimum of the sale proceeds upon repayment and discharge, regardless of the future property value or loan balance).

Competitive pricing

Some Reverse Mortgage rates in Australia differ between providers, so it may be prudent to seek a lender with a competitive interest rate. As far as possible, try to compare prices from different providers by looking at their fee schedule.

Secondary property

The better Reverse Mortgage lenders provide an option for you to use a secondary property as security, such as a holiday home or investment property. If you own more than one property this can be useful feature.

Excellent service

Most Reverse Mortgage providers in Australia are not specialist lenders. If you are an older borrower who values quality customer service, you might consider a specialist lender who understands the particular needs of people over sixty. Better still, look for a lender who demonstrates a passion for changing the lives Australian seniors.
