What Is Mortgage Life Assurance?
Mortgage Life Assurance is designed to pay off the remaining mortgage debt on repayment mortgages if you die within a set period.

Should I take this cover ?
Most lenders strongly recommend you get a policy when you take out a mortgage. It is useful protection and, if done correctly, should not be too expensive.
How Much Does It Cost?
Mortgage Decreasing Term Assurance (MDTA) has no investment element as the payment covers the balance of the mortgage you have taken out. .Premiums are based age, sex and whether you are a smoker or not. Being an ex smoker that hasn’t smoked for more then a year can greatly reduce your premiums, speak to us as we may be able to reduce your premiums .
Your occupation also plays a major part in the premiums being quoted as someone whose occupation as an Electrician will be a lot greater then someone who works in an office.

If you die the life assurance payment will then form part of your estate. This may make the value of your estate liable to Inheritance Tax. In many cases you can avoid this by writing the policy in trust – which means the payment goes direct to your dependents, avoiding inheritance tax. Speak to us and we will do the rest.
