Mortgage Life Assurance

When you purchase a house with a mortgage, the majority of lenders request to see evidence that you have adequate protection in place, to ensure that you will be able to repay the loan in the event of your death. Mortgage Life Assurance is designed to pay out a lump sum to your creditors, so that should you die before your mortgage loan is fully repaid, the outstanding amount is covered off and paid back to the mortgage lenders.

It’s common practice for mortgage lenders to offer you a Mortgage Life Assurance product at the time which you take out your loan. However, it is by no means required for you to accept the policy which is offered to you by your lenders, and in fact it can really pay off for you to shop around to locate the best deal for your preferred policy. Often, because of the commission which is paid to mortgage lenders by insurance companies for arranging and recommending their services, the price of the product can be greatly increased, in comparison to when you seek out the product yourself.

In addition to being a pre-requisite for most mortgage products, Mortgage Life Assurance also affords your family peace of mind that your outstanding loan can be settled in the event of your death. The product, also known as decreasing term Life Assurance, will give you a financial safety net to ensure that your family can remain in your home even if you are not there as the main breadwinner, to pay off your mortgage.

Although you may already have Mortgage Life Assurance in place from when you first purchased your property, if you move house or remortgage your existing home, it’s a good idea to check over the terms of your original policy to make sure that it still covers the amount which you have been loaned from your providers. In addition, shopping around periodically enables you to keep up with different offers across the financial industry, ensuring that you get access to the best possible deal available at the time your circumstances change.

When you take out your Mortgage Life Assurance, you can select the amount of cover which you require, and the length of time your policy will run for. As you continue with your cover, the premiums should decrease over time, and the policy payments reduce in line with the decreasing amount of money which is owed on your property. Upon your death, the insurance company providing your policy will pay out the calculated cover which you have requested at the time, modifying it in line with the outstanding loan amount.
