Payment Protection on Mortgage

The largest payment which most consumers will ever make in their lifetimes will be a mortgage payment on their homes. This is especially significant to a first time homebuyer as they are rightfully concerned about losing their home in the event of an illness or redundancy which renders them unable to make their mortgage payments. In response to this concern most lenders began to offer customer's payment protection on mortgages. Payment protection covers the insured person against loss of employment by stepping in to take over repayments.

Problems with mortgage payment protection

 Although payment protection can be a valuable product it is not suitable for everyone. If, for example, the customer is over sixty-five or is self-employed they are probably not eligible for the insurance. Because of a lack of training and product knowledge, though, many people in these circumstances were sold the cover. If this happended to you it may be deemed as mis-selling and you may be entitled to payment protection refunds

How Payment Protection on Mortgage Affects Cost

The cost of mortgage payment protection is usually around £3-£7 per £100 paid in each installment. That means if you mortgage repayments are £800 per month you may pay between £24-£56 per month for the cover. That is the equivalent of £288-£672 per year. Over the life of a mortgage this can obviously really mount up so it is important to think carefully about whether you really need this type of cover - if you are entitled to sick pay from your employer, have adequate savings or cover in place elsewhere then you may not.
