Mortgage Insurance Cover to Fall Back On

Jul 25, 2008
Everyone who has the commitment of a mortgage should give some thought to taking out mortgage insurance cover. Without having a policy to fall back on you could find yourself in a great deal of trouble when it came to keeping up with the repayments. If you cannot pay your mortgage then you could find yourself being taken to court by the lender and having to leave your home due to repossession.

With a policy you would pay your monthly premium and for this you would be able to rely on an income each month given by the provider and which would be tax-free. This income would be the amount that you insured against when taking out your policy which is up to a certain amount of your monthly mortgage repayment.

With the payment you receive from your policy each month you are then able to keep up with your mortgage outgoings to ensure that you would not be at risk of losing your home. This is essential because even just one missed payment would see the lender sending you a letter and you having to contact them to make an agreement to catch up. Of course this would be extremely hard without having an income to rely on and could be the downward spiral to repossession. Mortgage payment protection insurance would mean that you could avoid all of this and would be free to concentrate on making a recovery or of finding work again which was suitable.

When you look into taking out mortgage insurance cover you have to find out as much as possible about the cover as you can. All payment protection specialists will put different terms in the cover and you have to compare these so you will know if you would be eligible to claim. Exclusions have to be checked and some policies will contain more than others. You also have to check when cover would begin and end as this varies too. Also look for the provider offering to backdate a policy to the first day of you becoming unemployed or when you became incapacitated.

Usually policies will begin to payout your income from somewhere between day 30 and 90 of continuous unemployment or incapacity. Once the policy starts to pay it will do so for a certain length of time and then it stops. You are able to take out cover that would provide you with an income each month for 12 months or 24 months.

Mortgage insurance cover is worth paying out the small premium that a standalone specialist will charge each month and is a much more reliable plan than using savings or claiming for State benefits. You might not have enough savings to last unable to work or are unemployed for any length of time. You also might not be eligible to claim from the State as you have to meet many requirements. Even if you do get State benefits you would only be provided with help towards the interest part of your mortgage repayment and then only up to so much of it.
