The right insurance advice to protect you

Insurance is how we protect ourselves from the unforeseeable. We offer insurance advice on many different types of insurance. Please see the below covering exactly what we can advise on. Taking our advise insurance wise can be key to protecting yourself.

Insurance Advice

How do I start with getting a mortgage as a first time buyer?

As you can see from the above, there are a lot of options out there. From protecting your income all the way through to your family and property. So, what sort of protection do you need? This really depends on your circumstance. What we will do initially is a full fact find to assess your situation. Once we have all this information on you we can look for gaps where you aren’t protected. Having a mortgage with no insurance could be a simple gap that you might not think of. Whether that be your residential, buy to let, self build or commercial mortgage. They all need protecting. When it comes to remortgaging you might want to also consider adjusting the cover. 

For examples sake let’s say you have a property with your wife and you were the main breadwinner in the marriage. You have an outstanding mortgage and you pass away, how is she expected to keep up the payments? It would be very hard to expect her to meet the financial needs of this whilst also grieving for your loss. This is an insurance gap in your financial situation that we would look to fill with the relevant product. Generally speaking, here we would advise on joint life insurance to cover the outstanding mortgage amount. This would mean that should you or your wife die, the mortgage would instantly be paid out in full

You can play around with this and also look at critical illness cover which will, on top of covering you on death, also cover you as soon as you are diagnosed with a critical illness. Critical illness are different to each lender but they all have lists they abide by. See here Aegons list of illnesses they cover for an example. This is typically a lot more expensive than traditional life insurance as you still get paid regardless of whether or not you die.

Insurance products we advise on are as follows:

Filling out an insurance application comes next. This is part of our insurance advise process. Applications are generally extensively long and we normally recommend either the insurer gets in touch with you directly or we run over the application with you on the phone, normally taking 30 minutes or so as they ask every question under the sun. This is to make sure that there aren’t any health conditions or situations that they’re missing. The insurer will then get their underwriters to look at this. After they’ve assessed it they will either give you an ok to have the policy or ask for a doctors certificate.

The doctors certificate is usually to prove you are in good health. This will normally only be required should you have a history of poor health or any history of conditions being passed down in your family. Once this is provided the lender may choose to alter their terms if they decide you are more risky than their traditional client.

Equity Release

Equity Release plans are not right for everyone. And it is important that you fully consider your options and receive independent financial advice before making a decision. It is also important that, if you do decide to use an equity release product, you choose one that meets your needs.

Remember that taking an equity release plan is generally a long term option. However, there are flexible plans available that may fit your varying needs and some will allow you to repay in the future without penalties.
