To take out a mortgage is it also compulsory for me to take out Mortgage Life Insurance so the bank would get the loan back if I died?

Although it usually makes sense to consider taking out Life Insurance to cover your mortgage loan it is not normally compulsory.
It is important to have a think about how your loved ones would cope with the mortgage debt if you were to pass away.
- Could they meet the monthly mortgage repayments?
- Would they have sufficient income to maintain such a mortgage?
Given the cost of Life Insurance if you have a partner or family it is often worth considering irrespective of whether it is compulsory or not.
A simple Mortgage Term Insurance policy would pay out a cash lump sum equal to the outstanding mortgage debt allowing your loved ones to pay off the balance and remain in their family home.
If you are buying a house on your own and do not have a family to protect then Mortgage Life Insurance may not be as important.
