Could you get a better deal on your life cover policy?
Buying a new home usually involves a mortgage which is then protected by a suitable life cover policy. Have you considered if you could get a better deal?
Why it pays to shop around
This is a very sensible thing to do as you do not want to leave your loved ones with what could be a crippling debt, in the event that you are no longer able to make the repayments due to death or serious illness. Most people buy a life cover policy with their mortgage provider. However, the premiums paid may not be as competitive as those available if you had shopped around.
A New Year is a good time to review any existing policies you may have to make sure that they are still doing what they should. You could also find that you are paying too much. A small saving each month can add up to a significant amount when multiplied by the number of years over the term of the life cover policy.
For example a couple in their early 30’s, borrowing £185,000 over a 25 year period, could save as much as £2,000 by shopping around for the best rates currently available!*’
