Reverse Mortgage Loan Products and Services from BOA

Reverse mortgages are a relative new business for Bank of America. In 2007 BOA bought out Reverse Mortgage of America and absorbed its hefty reverse mortgage business into the BOA home equity division. Now the Bank of America reverse mortgage business is one of the more vigorous in the nation.

Bank of America offers senior customers two flexible reverse mortgage products, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, which is federally insured, and its own proprietary product, the Senior Equity Reverse Mortgage Platinum.

Senior Equity Reverse Mortgage Loans

The Senior Equity Reverse Mortgage Platinum borrower features include:

  • Designed for senior homeowners age 62 or older.
  • No credit check or income requirements.
  • Remain permanent residents of their home.
  • Retain title to the home and never owe more than the value of the home.
  • Finance closing costs and fees and pay no money down at closing
  • Leverage equity to buy a new home.
  • Safeguard, or “preserve,” a percentage of the home’s equity for heirs (Equity Preservation component).
  • Suitable for homes valued up to $10M.

Other flexible options: option to refinance without extra cost, option to draw more cash regardless of credit line.

Borrowers for either the HECM or the Senior Equity Reverse Mortgage are required to pay for fees associated with the loan processing and closing fees, between $2,000 and $10,000.

    I am a Reverse Mortgage Lender since 2004 and we use Bank of America as our preferred lender 90% of the time. On May 7th 2010, Bank of America pays the MIP and we have brought our origination fee to zero. B of A also pays for the monthly servicing fee that used to be $25-$35 per month.

    There are other lenders that are good, just not as good in customer service after the loan is completed. And that is important to the senior for the term of loan. Any questions, I would be happy to answer 800-880-7317

    MY MOTHER RECENTLY GOT A REVERSE MORTGAGE. SHE IS ON SOC. SEC. SO THE BANK NOW OWNS HER HOME, SO WHY DOES SHE HAVE TO PAY PROPERTY TAXES ON A HOME THAT IS NOT HERS? ALSO SHE HAS TO PAY FLOOD INSURANCE, $1200 EVERY SEPTEMBER AND THE NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET ONLY HAVE OT PAY $400. MOM IS ON A FIXED INCOME BUT YET HAS TO FOOT THE BILL ON SO MUCH THAT IS NOT HERS. SHE ALSO HAS TO PAY HOMEOWNER’S INSURANCE. ALL OF THESE COSTS ARE BREAKING HER DOWN. SO WHAT HAPPENS IF SHE CANNOT PAY FLOOD INSURANCE? AND IF SHE DOESN’T? AND LASTLY, CAN SHE DRAW OUT ANY EQUITY IN HER HOME AFTER 6 MONTHS OF DOING THE REVERSE MORTGAGE. CAN SHE EVER DRAW MONEY OUT. OF COURSE SHE WILL NOT HAVE TO IT BACK CORRECT? THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

    My Brother and I have a reverse mtg. serviced by BOA. we let our Insurance co. get the monthly payments direct from our bank.They send people to our home 6 times yearly to check to see if we still live in our home,then they claim we donot have insurance, then they buy insurance from their insurance provider and add it on to our bill, they have run up a large bill on us.We proved several times we have insurance from day one, they just keep on harassing us. We are both in our 80’s and do not need this

  6. kenlewis Says:

    what is the answer to the question above. tell us what happens to judys mother will she live on the street

  7. Jimmy Boyle Says:

    Your mother still hold title to the property therefore she has topay the taxes and insurance. The bank does not “own” the property only has a mortgage on the property. The bank will not take ownership of the property until your mother is not in the home for 12 consecutive months or signs a letter abandoning the property to the bank. She does not have to allow the bank to take the property the loan can be paid off. The flood insurance premuims are governed by FEMA. The premium is determenined by the position of the buiding on the 100 year flood plane. If her home is closer to the flood area by elevation than the neighbor across the street or even the home next door her premium will be higher than theirs.

  8. Norma Says:

    I can relate to your concerns. I got a reverse mortgage and B of A is the lender. I have to pay tx,ins,and flood ins. I have had one problem after another with B of A losing documentation they request and I’ve faxed AND mailed (3 times now), not to mention harassment by insp to my neighbors and myself proving it was being occupied by me. Which had been proven by 4 legal documents they requested. Also-I was never given a book or counseling session by the woman(salesmen)in the beginning or I wouldn’t have done this, I can’t afford this and am now so depressed I’m in counseling.
