Go To A Standalone Provider For The Best Deal In UK Mortgage Insurance

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

When it comes to getting the best deal on UK mortgage insurance then there is only one way to go and that is by doing your homework, shopping around and going with a standalone payment protection provider. A standalone provider will in most cases be able to offer you the cheapest quote on your mortgage insurance along with providing a quality product that is suited to your particular needs.

UK mortgage insurance - or mortgage payment protection insurance (MPPI) as it is also known - is taken out in case you should find yourself out of work through an accident, sickness or unemployment and the majority of policies will pay out for a period of up to 12-24 months once you have been out of work for a set period of time. While the payment protection insurance sector has recently been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons with the emphasis being on the mis-selling of products along with extortionate premiums, it is a financial lifeline.

Your mortgage repayments are probably the largest outgoing you have each month and while the majority of us don?t like to think of the worst happening, it can and does. Protecting yourself with cheap but good quality UK mortgage insurance policy should be given some serious consideration and by shopping around and going with a standalone provider, is by far your best option for the cover.

Never be conned into taking out the insurance alongside your mortgage with the high street lender ? you are free to buy it elsewhere - and remember that you don?t have to buy the cover from the lender who offers you the mortgage no matter how persuasive they can be. If you want the safety net that UK mortgage insurance can provide then go independently for the cover, you will not only make huge savings on the premium quoted but also get expert advice. When it comes to your finances and peace of mind nothing else will do.

Always make sure you read the small print of a policy and understand what you are and are not covered for, there can be many exclusions within a policy so do check before you sign on the dotted line.
