Upside Down and Reverse Mortgages
An "upside down" mortgage is one in which more money is owed to the bank than a property is actually worth. This is becoming more common as house values fall. It's also something we see in probate court as elders choose reverse mortgages as a way to finance retirement and medical needs. Beneficiaries may find that the family home now carries a high mortgage.
If you are facing legal and financial problems because of an upside-down mortgage, or you simply need to know your options, contact our office to speak with a real estate attorney.
