Unlike in the U.S., in Canada reverse mortgages are very conservative and designed to protect both the homeowner and the equity in the home. This makes them very safe.

A reverse mortgage can be paid back at any time. Repayment usually occurs when homeowners sell or move. Since over 90% of Canadians 60+ want to remain in their homes as long as possible, most reverse mortgages are paid back when the homeowners have passed away.

That's up to you. As long as your home remains your primary residence, and you keep your property well-maintained, and you pay your home insurance and property taxes, the loan can last as long as you want.

Nothing changes with your reverse mortgage. You will continue to have peace of mind. The loan amount can't be demanded by the bank because the property decreases in value.

What is a Reverse Mortgage?

It's a financial product that allows you to access the equity in your home and convert it into tax-free money.
