How do reverse mortgage interest rates work?

Like many other loans, interest will be charged on your Express Reverse Mortgage. Interest is calculated on the daily balance, compounded and debited monthly to your loan account. When you sell or move permanently from your home (including when you pass away), the total interest charged, as well as the principal, will be payable.

Like most reverse mortgages, an Express Reverse Mortgage has a variable rate which is subject to change at any time. If there are changes to the interest rate, we’ll publish it on our website and advise you in writing (usually via email). We’ll also detail the new interest rate on your next loan account statement.

Legal work

We want to ensure you make an informed decision. You’re required to receive independent legal advice when you take out an Express Reverse Mortgage, and your solicitor should advise you regarding fees payable for completing the necessary advice and paperwork. You’ll be responsible for their fees.

Your obligations

When you take out an Express Reverse Mortgage, you agree to maintain your property in good order, pay your rates, pay any body corporate costs and insure your property. If you don’t meet your obligations under the loan, we may not be able to honour some of our commitments to you.

Keeping track

To help you monitor your Express Reverse Mortgage, we’ll send you a statement every six months detailing the transactions on your mortgage over the previous period, including interest charged.
