Life has a habit of being unpredictable, as we are all too aware!

At The Mortgage Pod, we like to put a positive spin on these things! While you can’t predict life’s twists and turns, finding the right insurance protection puts you in financial control at the very least. ‘Peace of mind’ is an overused phrase in the world of insurance, but it’s not to be underestimated. Knowing that you and your loved ones are financially safe is better than any sleep aid on the market!
It’s really important not to bury your head in the sand and take out the first insurance policy you come across. We’ll help you to identify what’s important to you and find the right cover to match. We have a wealth of protection knowledge in our team, and our experts can pinpoint the right insurance products whatever your employment circumstances, family structure or health concerns.

What is mortgage protection?
‘Protection insurance’ is a catch-all term for a range of insurance products that help safeguard you, your family and your assets as you embark on a new mortgage.
Life insurance will pay off your mortgage in the event of your passing so that your family are financially protected. These covers are mostly optional but are highly recommended.
Buildings and contents insurance protects your home, furniture, fixtures and general ‘stuff’ in the case of a serious event like a fire or flood. Buildings insurance is usually mandatory under the terms of your mortgage.

Why do you need protection insurance?
For most of us, taking out a substantial loan like a mortgage is a big deal. If you choose to be in debt by tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds, then surely it makes sense to take a few precautions? Few of us are lucky enough to get through life unscathed, and anything can happen in the course of your mortgage term, which could be up to 40 years.
It’s back to the dreaded ‘what ifs?’ but we urge you to think about what would happen if you couldn’t afford your mortgage repayments. You could lose the home you’ve worked so hard for, which would be devastating. Even if you think you don’t have much in the way of possessions, imagine waking up tomorrow without them and with no financial means of replacing them.
While we’re sorry to put those images in your head, we’re here to help you save the day if something awful happens. Investing a relatively small amount each month into the right insurance policies could provide financial support in your hour of need to help you come out the other side.
Should I get protection insurance when I get a mortgage?
Our team does not compromise on providing a 5-star, trusted service, and will be here with you throughout your home buying or remortgage journey, offering support and guidance every step of the way.
Some lenders will also insist on life insurance to protect their investment should you pass away prematurely.
Other covers, like critical illness cover and income protection, are entirely optional. But as a responsible mortgage broker, we highly recommend these types of cover to protect you if you suddenly find yourself unable to work.
Likewise, we urge customers to consider contents insurance very carefully to ensure they have adequate cover should they lose their possessions, for example, in a flood or fire.
