If I had a reverse mortgage and defaulted on credit card debt....

Asked by Ana, 76132 Fri Aug 8, 2008

Can the FHA call the reverse loan if I default on credit card debt or have medical collections?

No, those debts are "unsecured" debts. So they will not result in the loss of your home or disruption to the mortgage. But double check with an attorney if you have any doubt. Try a free initial consultation with a lawyer, or a quick phone consultation.

No. Your loan cannot be recalled for credit card debt or medical collections of any sort.
Your consumer debt does not weigh any influence on your reverse mortgage. This is one main reason why the FHA HECM loan is such a safe tool for the senior "aging in place".
Take care, and I hope things go well for you in retirement.
