There is always the right way and easy way to do things in life. Then there is the wrong way and the hard way and when it comes to purchasing your mortgage insurance, this is no exception. Sadly, the majority of people who buy mortgage protection do things the wrong way; these people purchase their mortgage insurance alongside their loan from the high street lender or their bank. Now if you were to go about things the right and easy way then you would go shop around and go to an independent specialist for your mortgage insurance.
An independent specialist can in most cases offer you cheaper premiums for your cover while making sure that you understand what the policy entails. And as a standalone provider usually just specialises in payment protection insurance, they can give you the best information and point you in the right direction.
Another factor is that sadly the majority of those who buy their policy from the high street lender do so through ignorance – they simply don’t know they can go independently for the cover.
Mortgage payment protection insurance (MPPI) is purchased in order to protect your monthly mortgage outgoings, as these will be considerable. Many people have stretched their budget to the limit already and if they should find themselves out of work for any period of time due to redundancy, illness or accident, the mortgage would still have to be paid. This could leave many wondering where to get the money from. Of course, if you have mortgage cover then this will kick in after a predefined period of time and allow you to meet the repayments for your mortgage as well as any associated costs such as home insurance.
When it comes to buying your mortgage insurance, make sure you do it the right way. It is essential that you shop around for cover and fully understand what the cover entails. It is the only way to make sure you get the best quote for the premium while getting a quality product.
