Does a Borrower on a Reverse Loan Have to Prove Income?
Unlike a traditional loan where the applicants(s) must prove that they can make the mortgage payments and have good credit scores, the qualifications for a Reverse loan are completely different. A Reverse loan doesn’t require the borrower to ever make any mortgage payments but instead, the borrower receives money (equity) from their home. Even if they should have poor credit scores, that will not affect their ability to be approved. The only requirement is that the borrower(s) be age 62.
