Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance Helps You Avoid Repossession

Aug 29, 2008
Losing your home and all the memories you have built up over the years is devastating. It is the nightmare of every homeowner and it can be avoided with a little careful planning and looking into taking out mortgage payment protection insurance. A policy can be taken with payment protection specialists and this is by far the cheapest way of taking out the cover.

You will be given a quote online by visiting the website which is based on the amount that you wish to protect, up to a certain amount defined by the provider. Some providers will also offer age based protection which means that even the younger generation can now afford to protect their borrowings. First time homebuyers often stretch their budgets to the maximum and when looking to take cover with high street lenders, the cost is above them. This left them wide open to repossession if they lost their income to accident, sickness or redundancy but with age on their side cover is a lot more affordable.

Lenders do not take repossession lightly; however if you have not got a regular income coming in then it is impossible to make an agreement with the mortgage lender. Therefore they have no other choice but to start proceedings for repossession through the courts. If the judge rules in favour of the mortgage lender then you will be given an eviction date and you have to vacate the property before this day. By paying a small premium each month repossession and eviction, the pain and stigma associated with it can be avoided.

You are usually able to take out mortgage payment protection insurance based on your needs. This means that you can cover accident, sickness and unemployment together. However you might only want to take out unemployment cover only or incapacity only. By choosing the right level of protection for your needs you can help to keep down the cost of the policy.

There are many factors that you have to consider when looking into taking out mortgage payment protection insurance. The cost of course is one of the main factors, along with this you have to check the exclusions as they are found in all forms of insurance. You also have to check to see when the protection would begin paying out. Some providers would allow you to put in a claim on the policy after the 30th day of you being unemployed or of becoming ill or suffering an accident. Others might extend the deferment period to 90 days and some might pay back to the first day of unemployment or incapacity. You also need to check for how long you would be covered as all mortgage payment protection insurance would only payout for so long once they has commenced and then after this period they would cease. You are usually able to find policies that run for periods of either 12 months or 24 months. Always make sure that you know what you are taking on before you sign for the cover, ethical providers will ensure that you have this information.
