I have a elderly friend with a "reverse mortgage" on his Texas

This answer was rated:

I have a elderly friend with a "reverse mortgage" on his Texas home. Can an agreement be made to purchase the property now but arrange my financing later on the balance of the loan?
Hello and thank you for your question.

Would you be signing a contract only or transferring the property title? Do you have a copy of the reverse mortgage documents? There may be a termination clause upon a change in title ownership.

Just a contract now. Then finance it later. Leave things as they are now with his reverse mortgage.
As long as the title is not transferring out of your friend's name there would be no issue with the lender. Just don't record the contract against the property.

Please feel free to ask me any additional questions that you may have with regard to this matter. It would be my pleasure to continue to assist you.
