  • A relative can pay off the reverse mortgage debt and keep the house once the reverse mortgage comes due - either because the homeowner/reverse mortgage holder died or left the house.

    You should check with the mortgage company about whether there are any early payment penalties if you want to pay it off before either of these two scenarios play out.
