"Er...This is your parents' last will and testament!" 28 August, 2004
Shows a lawyer holding up a postcard which displays an elderly couple holidaying in the sun and says "Wish you were here! .. NOT!". The elderly couple are deceased and the lawyer is telling a man and woman who are seated at a table that "Er...This is your parents' last will and testament!". Refers to article by Kristina Greene which discusses the attractiveness and dangers of reverse annuity mortgage (RAM) options to elderly with property but limited income. Under reverse mortgage schemes homeowners of 65 years and more can borrow up to 43 per cent of the value of their home. The loan, establishment fee and accrued interest is recovered once the homeowners either sell the house or die.
