Cheap Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance

By: Simon Burgess

If you want the best deal on cheap mortgage payment protection insurance then without a doubt the only way to go is by purchasing shopping around and getting the cover independently from a specialist provider. A specialist provider can not only help you to make substantial savings when it comes to the premiums charged for the policy, but will also be able to ensure you get the policy most suited for your needs and, if they are reputable, should provide free advice.

When looking for a policy, never be tempted to take what the high street lenders and banks offer you when you take out your mortgage without first doing a bit of research. The cover doesn't have to be taken alongside your mortgage regardless of the pressure techniques the lender might use to persuade you it does. While it's true some lenders will insist that you do take out cover to protect the loan, you can choose where to buy the cover from. High street lenders in the majority simply don't have the experience needed when it comes to selling mortgage payment protection and, as recent finings from the Financial Services Authority have proved, sales techniques are very poor. This has led to wide spread mis-selling of policies and has left many unfortunate people not being able to make a claim on their policy when needed.

All policies will have exclusions and these are often hidden in the small print and these are what you should be aware of when it comes to taking out the policy. A mortgage payment protection policy is taken out to ensure that if you should come out of work through an accident, prolonged sickness or unforeseen unemployment then the cover will provide a tax-free monthly income which means you can still pay the mortgage. However there are certain illnesses which are excluded and medical conditions that you have at the time of taking out the policy will normally be excluded, this is why it's important that you check the small print of a policy.

When it comes to getting the best deal on a mortgage payment protection insurance policy then you simply have to go independently to a specialist for it, this is probably the only way to get a quality product while making savings on your premium.
