05.Reverse mortgage calculator

The calculator shows you how long it could take until the loan is worth more than your house.

The ‘no negative equity guarantee’ normally offered by the lender protects you against this. What this means is that the lender covers the difference if the sale price of the house doesn’t cover the debt.

Make sure your loan offers an unconditional guarantee otherwise the lender may not honour it if you’re in default at the time of the sale.


Note: House value compounded annually, loan interest compounded monthly.
