Look Careful When Choosing Mortgage Payment Insurance

Jul 25, 2008
You have to look carefully at any mortgage payment insurance you are considering taking out before you choose which provider to take out your cover with. All policies differ in when they start, stop and in the exclusions which you have to check against your circumstances. Some providers will also offer protection that will be back dated to day one of you being made unemployed or of becoming incapacitated. Checking the terms of the cover is essential to know what the policy entails.

Shopping with and buying your mortgage payment insurance from someone who specialises in payment protection is the best way to get all of the information needed. It is also the best way to make sure you get the cheapest premiums possible. While you could have the cover added onto the borrowing when taking out the loan this is often the dearest option for taking out cover for your mortgage. In some cases it can boost up the borrowing considerably. A specialist on the other hand would give you a quote based on age, amount of protection and level of protection you want.

In some cases you could make savings of as much as 40% on the cost of your policy. Mortgage protection is essential as it provides you with an income which is tax-free after so many days of losing your own income to such as redundancy or accident and illness. Usually the provider will state payout commences from between days 30 and 90, so checking before taking out the protection is essential. Some policies will run for as long as 24 months while others will provide you with an income each month for 12 months. All policies only run for the time stated in the terms and they then cease but usually you have plenty of time to find work or to make a recovery.

If you were to get behind on your mortgage repayment then you could end up losing your home. While all lenders will do their best to try to come to an agreement for you to catch up on what you owe while maintaining your mortgage sometimes it is not possible. In cases such as this they will have no choice but to take you to court to seek repossession of your home. All of this can be avoided simply by paying out a small premium each month for mortgage payment insurance. Providing you have ensured that the exclusions would not stop you from claiming then you have a viable back up plan. Relying on money you have saved is not a great form of protection because you do not know how long you would have to rely on them. The same would go for any redundancy money you had and this would stop you from claiming with from the State. If you wanted to claim State benefit you would have to meet many requirements and even if you could claim you would only get help with the interest part of the mortgage repayment and only up to a certain amount.
