A Beginners Guide To Mortgage Insurance

Jul 10, 2008
Getting a mortgage for most people looking to buy a house for the first time is something that most people are struggling to obtain. Currently house prices are looking to go down in price, but they are leaning towards the more expensive side and many people are unable to qualify for buying their own house. Others prefer to wait until there really is a house price crash, which will enable them to jump at the chance of buying their own place.

Applying for a mortgage is a daunting process that requires the person to be prepared and have had researched the risks involved with getting a mortgage out. One can only assume that is all going to go well when they do apply for a mortgage, that they will continue to work for the same company for the next ten or more years of their life and they can only expect their wages to increase each year making it easier to make the mortgage repayments.

However, what would happen if the worst thing suddenly occurred to you? You may suddenly face redundancy, lose your job, become injured that you are forced to take time off work or are in a situation where you just cannot make the mortgage payments each month. This is where you should have a backup plan and many mortgage lenders are willing to offer mortgage insurance. These are offered usually at the time of your mortgage acceptance and are highly recommended for people looking to secure their future.

Many people underestimate the importance of mortgage insurance, as many people do not which mortgage insurance policy to pick from. It is much more difficult to keep up the high mortgage payments, since mortgages have increased in price and people are forking out as much as a thousand pounds per month in repayments. With all of this in mind, it is no surprise to see people paying extra to cover themselves when something does happen.

The first rule is to do your research and find the right policy for you. Always go for one, which you can pay a fixed monthly premium on, this way you will not have to worry about whether the insurance company are able to pay out enough money to cover your mortgage payments. You will also find that these companies may have a little extra, if you ever need to make a claim. However, if you do pick a policy that is bad, you will find a nasty sting in your bank account and end up paying more than you should.

Have a look on the internet, read up in finance and mortgage forums, or gain some advice from people who have bought mortgage insurance, this way you can compare prices and see which one is the best policy to apply. You must keep in mind that you would need to have been in a permanent job for six months or more and are taking out the policy to cover for you should anything happen. You will not be able to claim for one or be accepted if you already have a mortgage and are suspecting an upcoming redundancy package.
