Mortgage Insurance Cover Can Stop Home Repossession

Sep 8, 2008
Home repossession is the worst nightmare for any homeowner and it can happen for a variety of reasons. Of course accident or sickness that means you are unable to work and lose your income are main ones, as is unemployment by such as redundancy. Mortgage insurance cover can help you to continue paying your mortgage in these circumstances. You would have an income each month which would be tax free and the sum that you insured against when taking out the policy.

You would not have to worry about struggling to meet the payment each month when it became due and you would not fall into arrears. If you get behind by just one payment the lender will want assurance that you are able to catch up while at the same time maintaining your mortgage. Failure to come to an agreement will see the lender taking you to court and you could be evicted from your home if the judge rules on favour of the mortgage lender. With a policy to fall back on there would be no worry of this happening and you could recover or find work with peace of mind.

Mortgage insurance cover can be taken cheaper with a standalone payment protection specialist that it can be adding it onto the mortgage when borrowing. High street lenders cover costs much more than the premiums set out by a standalone specialist provider. Independent providers charge premiums which are based on the level of mortgage protection you need, your age and the amount you want to cover. if you take age based cover then this means that even first time buyers who have stretched their budgets to the maximum can now afford to protect huge mortgages.

Policies vary between lenders so it is essential that you check the terms of any policy you consider taking out before signing on the bottom line. Some providers will give protection that would payout an income tax-free after a period of unemployment or incapacity of 30 days. Others might ask that you wait for as much as the 90th day before you are able to put in your claim. You also have to check to see how long the policy would payout for because again this can differ. Some provider might offer 12 monthly payments while others could offer 24 monthly payouts before the cover ceases. You also have to check to see what exclusions there are in the policy as all policies have exclusions in them. Some providers just add in the very basic few while others could add in many.

Mortgage insurance cover can stop you from becoming one of the 45,000 estimated homeowners who will lose their homes to the mortgage lender this year by way of repossession. Up to June this year there has already been over 18,000 homes repossessed as the Council of Mortgage Lenders has pointed out. Perhaps many of these repossessions could have been stopped had the homeowner thought to take out mortgage payment protection. So give some thought to taking out a policy before it becomes too late.
