What you need to know

A mortgage is likely to be the biggest financial commitment many people will ever make. It is worth taking time to reiterate that it is a long term commitment to repay the debt to the lender.

In assessing your ability to repay the debt the lender will consider both your income and your expenditure to determine if the loan is affordable, however they can only consider your status at the point of application.

Our job as advisers is to plan for your long term financial security, and in doing so we consider those events which present a risk to your ability to repay the mortgage and ultimately own your own home.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE

Typically we will seek the answers to the following questions:


  • In the event of death, would the survivor (where relevant) be able to cope with the mortgage repayments?
  • In the event of serious illness would you (or your partner) be able to cope financially and meet your mortgage repayments?
  • In the event of long term absence from work would you (or your partner) be able to cope financially and meet your mortgage repayments?
  • In the event of unemployment would you (or your partner) be able to cope financially and meet your mortgage repayments?
  • In the event of your death who would you wish to benefit from the value of your estate?
