Tax-Free Gifting to your Children with a Reverse Mortgage

General Angela Calla 30 Aug

Rising house prices and interest rates make it more challenging for young Canadians to start families, own homes, or save. Parents often step in to help, with 35% of first-time buyers receiving financial assistance in a lump sum payment toward their purchase, while 25% of buyers received support on their monthly mortgage payments. HomeEquity Bank offers CHIP Reverse Mortgage solutions for Canadians aged 55+ to leverage home equity to help their adult children.

The Reverse Mortgage can help parents provide a tax-free gift to their children. Let’s take Robert and Jonathan as an example.
