A Gateway Reverse Mortgage provides an alternative funding option for your retirement.

If you're over 65 years of age, a Gateway Reverse Mortgage allows you to access the value in your property without having to sell it or move out. Gateway's Reverse Mortgage provides the security of a No Negative Equity Guarantee ensuring you'll never owe more than your property is worth1.

 

Our Reverse Mortgage gives you the flexibility to draw down your funds when you need them. This helps to give you with the peace of mind of having approved funds available when required, while only paying interest on the money you use.


Unlike a traditional mortgage, there are no ongoing repayments and the total loan amount, including accumulated interest, is generally repayable when you move out of the property. You can choose to make repayments at any time, reducing the loan balance and interest charged.


How much can I borrow?
The amount you can borrow depends on two key factors: your age, and the value of your property.


At Gateway, the minimum age for a Reverse Mortgage is 65, at which we would lend a maximum of 20% of the value of the property (LVR). This amount would increase by 1% for every year thereafter, meaning a 75-year-old could borrow up to 30% of the property value.


Wide range of acceptable loan purposes
Our Reverse Mortgage can be used for a wide range of purposes, whether it be living costs, renovations, holidays, medical costs, refinance and/or consolidation of multiple debts.

 

Key benefits include:

We will require you to have received independent legal advice to ensure you understand all the elements of a reverse mortgage and we strongly recommend that you seek independent financial advice regarding the product. We also recommend discussing the product with your family and any beneficiaries as a reverse mortgage will impact any potential inheritance from the sale of the property.
