Mortgage Insurance Cover Can Provide Security Of An Income

Mar 31, 2008
Without the security of an income each month, you could be left struggling when it came to servicing your mortgage each month. By getting behind by just a couple of months, your lender could take proceedings to repossess. Mortgage insurance cover would give you the income so that you could continue meeting your commitments. A policy would allow you the luxury of recovering with peace of mind that you do have the income needed. It would also give you space to be able to find another job.

However, depending on where you buy a policy will all depend on how much a policy would cost. Mortgage protection is offered alongside the loan at the time of borrowing. However, this can add hundreds onto the cost of borrowing more than it need too. You do not have to take cover this way and the mortgage does not depend on you taking a policy with the lender. However, some lenders can ask that you do protect the money you are borrowing.

A cheaper way to take mortgage insurance cover is with an independent provider. They can not only save you money but also ensure that you have the essential advice needed. Reading and comparing the terms and conditions is essential. This is where the important facts regarding the policy can be found and also covers the exclusions. It will tell you when the benefit would kick in and how long it would payout.

Usually mortgage insurance cover would kick in after a period of between 30 and 90 days of being continually unemployed or unfit for work. Once a policy had started to payout, it would then continue to provide for between 12 and 24 months before expiring. Usually this would allow the policyholder to recover from accident or illness or to find another job. However, thought would also have to be given to how you would continue servicing your repayments when the policy stops.

Relying on State benefit to provide the income needed to maintain the mortgage repayments could be a mistake. The same goes when it comes to using savings. Savings would have to be of a substantial amount if you remained out of work or unemployed for any length of time. You could benefit from help from the State; however, it would only be for the interest part. In addition, it would only provide for the first 100,000. You would have to be claiming income support and if you had savings over a certain amount or a partner living with you who was working full time would mean you would be ineligible.

With the forthcoming by the Financial Services Authority of payment protection insurance comparison tables, it is hoped that buying mortgage insurance cover and related products will be easier. Comparison table will highlight the fact that exclusions can exist. They will also show how much a policy would cost in total and will lead the consumer to choosing the right type. This will be made possible by asking a series of questions, which the individual answers, and then leads to the best choice for their needs.
