Can I have two mortgage life insurance policies?

I’ve got two houses, one of them I live in and the other I rent out. Is it okay to have a mortgage life insurance plan for both properties?

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.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
