5 ways to avoid a potential mortgage insurance claim

I was shocked to discover that I had an extra month of mortgage insurance when my new home was built.

I hadn’t realized it, but the lender had paid the mortgage, not me.

In fact, they’d put a $50,000 down payment on the home, just as I was about to move in.

Now, that extra month will cost me $2,000. 

If the extra month isn’t paid, I’ll be at a disadvantage in the mortgage market. 

This article outlines how to avoid this situation and how to save the extra $2k or so.1.

Get a good mortgage insurance policy that covers both the mortgage and the home2.

Find out if you have a mortgage policy that provides both the property insurance and the loan insurance3.

Understand the mortgage insurance terms4.

Understand your options for mortgage insurance5.

Determine whether you need a mortgage insurance premium or not (if you do, look at what the rates are)1.

Learn about your mortgage insurance coverage2.

Check to see if your insurance covers both your mortgage and your home3.

Check the coverage you have on your property insurance coverage4.

Check your mortgage rate5.

Compare mortgage insurance rates between different lenders (if necessary)If your insurance coverage covers your mortgage, then your mortgage will be paid automatically if you pay it off in full.

If your insurance does not cover your mortgage you’ll need to contact your lender for assistance.

If your mortgage does not provide mortgage insurance, your lender can require you to pay up-front a set amount of money.

In most cases, the lender will require you pay this amount in full before the policy is paid off.

If you’re unsure whether your lender requires you to make payments upfront, check with the lender to make sure.

In most cases lenders will let you choose the amount of the upfront payment, but some do not.

You’ll need a lawyer to help you make sure you’re getting a fair deal.2.

Understand what your loan is and how it’s secured3.

Know what your insurance policy covers (if applicable)4.

Determinate if you need an extra $250 for the loan5.

Check whether your insurer has extra coverage for the extra monthly paymentIf you have the mortgage you need, and your lender is providing mortgage insurance on your home, then you’ll want to know about the policy and how much it covers. 

It’s important to know your policy and what your policy covers, and make sure that you understand how it applies to you.

You should also know the terms and conditions of the policy you have.

The terms and condition of the insurance policy will tell you what kind of insurance you need and how the policy applies to your situation. 

There are several different types of mortgage policies, and different insurance companies offer different policies. 

The best mortgage insurance companies are the ones that offer both property insurance (property title insurance) and loan insurance (lender-subsidized loan insurance). 

To find out which mortgage insurance company offers you the best mortgage, look up your lender’s policy number on their website.

If it’s a lender-subsidy, then it’s the best.

If the number is a lender loan, then the best is usually the lender loan.3.

Ask your lender questionsYou should ask your lender about your current mortgage and how your mortgage is secured.

If they can’t answer you, ask them what kind they have for you.

This will help you understand your mortgage. 


Get more information from your lender (if required)If you’ve taken a lender guarantee test, you’ll probably get a letter from your bank stating that the lender’s mortgage is insured by the bank. 

Your lender may also offer you a loan insurance policy or two that you may or may not qualify for.

These insurance policies are usually offered through their lending subsidiaries, and you’ll be able to choose which one is the best for you based on what’s on your lender guarantee.

If you can’t get the loan you need through a lender, there are several other ways to help pay for your mortgage upfront:Apply for a loan through your bank (if your lender only has a loan guarantee)or use a credit union.

A credit union is a bank that offers a loan, but they offer a guarantee to cover the cost of your loan.

Credit unions also help people get loans, but not by paying them interest.

Your lender will want to cover this upfront, so it’s important that you contact your credit union before applying for a new loan. 

Apply for an extension to your mortgageIf you’re able to apply for an extended mortgage, your lenders will give you an extension on your mortgage loan so you can take out more money for your new home.

It’s important you contact the lender and get a guarantee before making a decision. 


Review your mortgage options (if needed)In most instances, a lender will allow you to have two or more mortgage options.
