Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Reverse Mortgage - I currently have a reverse mortgage and want to start paying down the accrued monthly interest.
When making monthly payments do I need to direct the mortgage company to apply the payment directly to the current Principal Limit which is the Financial Charge of the Reverse Loan and not the MIP Financial Charge which is the Mortgage Insurance or will it just e deducted from the bot***** *****ne. When I first took out the loan the sales representative told me they may try and deduct it just from the MIP since it is a lower amount and would not decrease the Original Principle Limit? Hope this makes sense.

When you make payments on the mortgage, you can state on the payments where you want them to be applied. Unless your mortgage contract (you need to review that contract too) prohibits you from directing payments as you specify, the mortgage company must apply the payments as you direct them to apply them.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
