The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage counselor exam administered under the Department of Housing and Urban Development will change, with a new exam rolling out on Monday, November 28.
The exam is required to obtain and retain a place on the HUD HECM Counselor Roster, and has not been revised since May 2009. The new revision will continue to include 100 questions, but the number of question in each of four content categories and the questions themselves will change.
Reverse Mortgage Basics; HECM Costs and Benefits; Alternatives to Reverse Mortgages; and HECM Counseling will remain the four content categories, but the new version will include a greater emphasis on HECM Counseling and less emphasis on HECM Costs and Benefits and Reverse Mortgage Basics.
The current exam will be offered through November 27, 2011.
