    A realtor friend explains:

    “It’s commonly known as a Reverse Mortgage and the $800k is the maximum draw with the estimated amortized mortgage interest and fees calculated in accordance to the grantors (borrower) typical life expectancy.

    Basically it is a cash-out of a persons equity with interest estimated up-front. There are no mortgage loan payments made but the grantor must continue to make tax and insurance payments.”

    The details of this scam should be on television. The family who gets this bonus windfall should have been investigated more deeply. Upright citizens supported and enriched by the infallible mayor.

    They still owe the money, the money they got from the loan will not last forever. There is interest on the loan. The house will never be theirs until the loan is paid off.If they don’t have the money the bank gets the house. In the meantime they get to live there as long as they pay the real estate taxes insurance and utilities. I feel bad for the good hearted people that fell for this.

    It’s a reverse mortgage. The mortgage company is buying the house and making payments to her for the principle and interest, probably several thousand a month.

    There should have been some type of condition to the agreement in which they could not sell/rent out the house/borrow against it for a few years like 5 or 10 or 15 to prevent a scam like this from happening. My head hurts from shaking it!!!

    People who donate to a city run, narcissist run charity “charity” should have their heads examined. This travesty is a further extension of Post-Sandy Gift Cards. If the press wasn’t so in bed with liberals, we would have the story.

    This will be reported to the NJ State Department of Insurance and Banking. The mortgage company, title company (Delaware corporations oh what a surprise) appraisal company and attorney representing the owner. My guess it will lead right back to Belmar crooks. We are watching you. Dumb move.

    Who said it was illegal? They received a free house through donations (gifts) tax free. There is a federal gift tax. Now this may or may not be different. My guess is this type of transaction may be taxable. Both Federal and NJ. But who am I but just an OLD MAN.

    Can receipt of a charity based house be construed as being a tax triggering gift? It (the house) wasn’t a lottery or game show winning, was it?

    It could be construed in this case. Maybe a time limit is imposed by the feds to live in a “gifted” house. But what do I know I’m just an OLD MAN.

    The elderly owner may or may not live in the residence as her primary home, reverse mortgages are heavily regulated and the borrower must sign and comprehend exactly how the mortgage works. This to protect the borrower usually an elderly person from being taken advantage of by greedy relatives. This mortgage also can be used as a line of credit again, is the borrower being used. Also the amount of money borrowed is inconsistent with the actual value of the home so the appraisal must be reviewed by the proper authorities to make sure there were no misrepresentations on the value to guarantee the loan. The attorney acted as notary so he basically determined the borrower’s competency to comprehend the entire scope of the reverse mortgage and line of credit. It’s a very complicated loan.

    They can only give you a % of the appraised value minus any dollar amounts of liens against the property.

    But they also pay interest. That’s why the amount is higher than the value of the house.

    I always thought a reverse mortgage worked just like a home equity loan. The person just takes money out as they need it. I just can’t understand why the Borough got involved with nonprofits over this in the first place. Sadly, as I understand, this family apparently had financial difficulties prior to Sandy. Then why build them such an elaborate home if they are unable to financially keep it? Any other person in their situation would have undoubtedly sold the lot and located somewhere financially feasible. They perhaps need this loan to keep up with the taxes, etc. that are mandatory to be paid. Mixed emotions about this not knowing all details. Are the owners anticipating the reval? Did they just know how to work the system or was this something for our wonderful elected officials to put a feather in their cap? Appears as it may have backfired. Wonder how the donors are feeling right now or if they even know about it?
