Can Heirs Inherit a Reverse Mortgage?

After a reverse mortgage borrower dies, their “heirs” may have rights. Heirs are people with legal rights to the property of another after that person's death, such as a husband, wife, children, and people's names in estate planning documents.

A reverse mortgage is still a mortgage loan and must be paid in full to avoid foreclosure.
