The following points outline some of the key things that you need to consider with regards to your mortgage in the Peterborough area.

  •   If you are not there anymore, life cover insurance will relieve or remove any of the financial implications imposed by your death. Your dependents will be protected, which is a comforting thought for the present.
  •  If the policy holder dies then the remainder of your outstanding mortgage balance will be paid in one go, by your life cover policy.
  •   If you are the life cover policy holder then you will not see any physical payments whilst you are alive, your mortgage is only protected in the event of your death.
  •   If you complete your mortgage payments and thus complete your mortgage then your life cover will also expire with zero value.

Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance

  •  Mortgage payment protection insurance protects your payments if you are rendered unable to pay due to accident, illness or unemployment.
  • With mortgage payment protection insurance, there is no pay-out in the event of your death.
  •  This policy is similar to accident, sickness and unemployment insurance however it is specifically tailored so as to protect your mortgage and your monthly payments.
