    Default Reverse mtg inspections

    I recieved a call for a quote from a lender for a reverse mortage inspection.

    Is anybody doing these, and what is the lender looking for??

    Just like a refinance. They just want to make sure the home they are technically buying is in decent shape with no major concerns going on. Just trying to protect their investment.

    Wouldn't this type of inspection need an appraiser?

    An appraisal will be ordered. I have done a few of these and they were no different than a refinance. The process is just like a home purchase as the lender is paying the reverse mortgage just as they are purchasing the home. In essence if the person dies off the home reverts to them and they take their share before the rest gets split up with Aires

    Reverse mortgage inspections I do no differently than a home purchase inspection.

    Most of the mortgage companies I've dealt with are mainly concerned that the roof, foundation are in acceptable condition and there are no active termite infestations present.

    I was wondering if there are certain lenders that are requiring the Home Inspection?

    Most lenders recommend an inspection to the buyer but it is not always a requirement for lending purposes.
