A reverse mortgage gives you the opportunity to live life on your terms. Enjoy the financial flexibility, independence and a lifestyle you love.
A reverse mortgage is like a normal home loan that has been designed for the needs of seniors. It allows people aged 60 and over to release home equity to live a more comfortable retirement. Importantly, you continue to own and live in your home.
You remain the registered owner of the property, and you can continue to enjoy living in your own home for as long as you want.
The funds from your home can be used for almost anything you like to make your lifestyle more enjoyable, or for unexpected expenses.
There is no need for regular loan repayments. Interest is calculated on the balance outstanding and added to your loan.
Importantly, you continue to own and live in your home for as long as you wish, continuing to enjoy the benefits of your community.
You can use your reverse mortgage for almost any purpose that may make life easier, more comfortable, or more enjoyable in retirement. Below are some examples of what our customers have used their reverse mortgages for.

A Heartland reverse mortgage could provide a regular income stream supplement. Paid monthly for up to 10 years, this could help you gain freedom from stress and comfortably cover all the necessities, while also enjoying more of the opportunities retirement affords.
With an interest rate that is often lower than credit cards or personal loans, a Heartland reverse mortgage could allow you to access equity in your home to pay off higher-interest debt and give yourself the freedom and confidence to make plans for the future, so you can enjoy more of what life has to offer.
