She has a reverse mortgage on her house. I'd like to continue living here after mom is gone. She owes about 290k to the reverse mort. company. In this area, homes similar to this one go for much more, probably 450k. If I wanted to continue living here, I know I'd have to buy the house, but I'm wondering if I would have to pay the 290k to pay off that amount OR would the reverse mortgage company expect me to come up with whatever the house is worth now? I know I would need to see an elder care lawyer, but hoping there is someone who knows about this beforehand, as I definitely cannot afford 450k, but 290k I could handle.
