reverse mortgage loan limitsReverse mortgages have maximum limits on the amount of money that applicant can borrow or withdraw. Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs), the most common type of reverse mortgage, conform to loan limits set by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). However, these limits have been temporarily altered to alleviate the housing market strain caused by the mortgage crisis.
