Income from a reverse mortgage is not considered income. Has a year passed since the last remaining member on the reverse mortgage has passed?

You should ask your attorney, but in general, if the property is not worth what is owed, then the property reverts back to HUD, and there is no claim on the deceased estate. The transfer of property back to HUD satisfies all of the outstanding loan regardless of it's amount. If there is equity, then the estate can sell the home and keep the remaining proceeds or refinance the balance to pay off HUD and keep the home as long as you wish.
