Mortgage Insurance Protection Cover Essential as a Backup Plan

Sep 10, 2008
Mortgage insurance protection cover is essential as a backup plan if you are the main earner and you should lose your income. Cover gives you a replacement income that was tax-free providing you become unemployed or suffer from an illness or an accident which would mean you would not be able to work. You could be unable to work for a long period and it could also take you many months to look around for suitable work if you were made redundant. During this time the mortgage lender would of course expect you to continue repaying the mortgage when it was due.

The consequences of mortgage arrears only lead to one thing in the end. The lender will take you to court to take repossession of your home if you cannot show that you have the income to be able to pay both mortgage payments and arrears. Just one missed payment will be enough for the lender to send out a letter asking that you catch up on the mortgage arrears. If you miss another payment and do not contact them to make an agreement and continue to get behind on the mortgage this is when they will start repossession proceedings.

If you have mortgage insurance protection cover behind you to fall back on you would not have this worry. If you became sick or were in an accident you would be able to claim on the policy after the pre-defined period. You would also get an income unfortunate enough to become a victim of redundancy. You would have to check the terms of the policy before taking it out as the start and end dates would vary considerably. There are providers that would begin to provide you with an income after just 30 days of you being made redundant or of being sick or suffering an accident. Other providers might ask that you defer from claiming on the cover until as long as the 90th day and some providers would backdate your income to day one of unemployment or of being incapacitated. Payout lasts for a certain period and then it expires, this is either a 12 month or 24 month series of payments each month.

Mortgage payment protection taken out with an independent payment protection specialist works out a lot cheaper than adding the protection in with the high street lender. High street lenders add in cover which comes with a high price and without giving adequate information which in the past led to homeowners taking out insurance that they could not hope to claim against. Fines were handed out by the Financial Services Authority after an investigation and some changes for the better have been seen already. Currently the Competition Commission are conducting an in-depth review and it is hoped that many more changes will be seen. However providing mortgage insurance protection cover is taken with the exclusions in mind and you have checked them against your circumstances cover works in the way it was designed. The majority of ethical standalone providers will put the information needed on their website so checking is easy.
