Mortgage Cover an Essential Policy For Homeowners

Jul 25, 2008
All homeowners need to give some thought to taking out protection for their mortgage repayments and one way of doing so is by taking out mortgage cover otherwise known as mortgage payment protection. This policy can be taken out for a premium each month which covers your monthly mortgage repayment up to a certain amount. This is then used to fall back on if you find yourself unable to work due to accident and sickness or should become unemployed.

As no one can predict the future covering for all possibilities is essential. If you did not have something to rely on and should become unemployed or incapacitated then you could have to struggle to find the money each month to pay your mortgage repayments. In the worst situations if you got into arrears and were unable to come to an agreement with the lender you could even lose your home to repossession.

For a small premium each month which is decided by the amount you wish to protect, your age and the level of mortgage protection you need you can avoid being evicted from your home. Where you choose to take out your policy from will also depend on how much you have to payout for this valuable policy. An independent specialist who offers payment protection products will usually offer the lowest premiums and you could save as much as 40% by taking this option. Adding the cost of the policy onto the mortgage when borrowing is possibly the dearest way as high street lenders bring in huge profits associated with selling payment protection products alongside their loans and mortgages.

A reputable and well established payment protection specialist will provide the best deals on mortgage cover which includes presenting consumers with the information needed for them to be able to choose the right type of cover. They will also mention that consumers need to check the exclusions which can be found in the cover to ensure suitability. When buying a mortgage payment protection policy you will have to decide on the level of cover to take out based on your circumstances. You could protect against accident, sickness and unemployment together or just accident and sickness only or unemployment only.

A mortgage protection policy will cover you for a certain length of time after waiting to put in a claim for a set number of days. This depends on the provider you choose to go with, but is usually in the region of 30 to 90 days before you are able to claim and cover pays out for between 12 and 24 months. The details of this can be found in the information provided on the website of the specialist provider you choose to go with. You would also have to use this information to find out if mortgage cover would be suitable for your circumstances as all payment protection comes with some exclusions which need to be checked. Some providers could add in many exclusions while others will just include the exclusions most commonly found in policies.
