Reverse Mortgage/HECM Counseling
Human Development Services of Westchester is the second HUD-Approved Housing Agency in Westchester County to provide Reverse Mortgage and Home Equity Conversion Mortgage Counseling (HECM) for homeowners age 62 or older.
HDSW’s HUD-certified HECM counselor will inform and guide the client on reverse mortgages, eligibility criteria, and homeowner and lender responsibilities.
The only reverse mortgage insured by the U.S. Federal Government is called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or HECM, and is only available through an FHA approved lender. HECM mortgages allows for the homeowner to borrow against the equity accumulated in their homes over time.
