In addition to the disclosures required under this subchapter, for each reverse mortgage,
the creditor shall, not less than 3 days prior to consummation of the transaction,
disclose to the consumer in conspicuous type a good faith estimate of the projected
total cost of the mortgage to the consumer expressed as a table of annual interest
rates. Each annual interest rate shall be based on a projected total future credit extension
balance under a projected appreciation rate for the dwelling and a term for the mortgage. The disclosure shall include--
(1) statements of the annual interest rates for not less than 3 projected appreciation
rates and not less than 3 credit transaction periods, as determined by the Bureau,
(A) a short-term reverse mortgage;
(B) a term equaling the actuarial life expectancy of the consumer; and
(C) such longer term as the Bureau deems appropriate; and
(2) a statement that the consumer is not obligated to complete the reverse mortgage transaction
merely because the consumer has received the disclosure required under this section
or has signed an application for the reverse mortgage.
(b)Projected total cost
In determining the projected total cost of the mortgage to be disclosed to the consumer
under subsection (a), the creditor shall take into account--
(1) any shared appreciation or equity that the lender will, by contract, be entitled
(2) all costs and charges to the consumer, including the costs of any associated annuity
that the consumer elects or is required to purchase as part of the reverse mortgage
(3) all payments to and for the benefit of the consumer, including, in the case in which
an associated annuity is purchased (whether or not required by the lender as a condition
of making the reverse mortgage), the annuity payments received by the consumer and
financed from the proceeds of the loan, instead of the proceeds used to finance the
(4) any limitation on the liability of the consumer under reverse mortgage transactions
(such as nonrecourse limits and equity conservation agreements).
