Answered by Tom Conner

It is absolutely fine to take out two life insurance policies for mortgage and family protection.

For example, you may have two mortgages on different properties and wish to have separate mortgage life cover for both loans. Alternatively, you may have re-mortgaged and wish to top-up your life insurance.

It is very important to note this is not the case for mortgage payment protection, where it is usually only possible to take out cover for your primary residence. Additionally, cover cannot usually exceed the lower of 125% of your monthly loan repayment or 65% of your gross income, depending on the insurer.

Drew Berry acted very professionally from start to finish. The advisors were very knowledgeable and helpful, and gave me superb guidance as to which cover would suit me best. Oliver who completed all the finer details and set up the policy was a great credit to the company, and I would like to thank him personally, and Drew Berry as a company for arranging cover to give me peace of mind. I would thoroughly recommend this company.
