Don't risk losing your home

Can you afford to be seriously ill?

For many of us, buying a home is the biggest financial commitment we’ll make in our lifetime. Having carefully selected the right mortgage for your current circumstances, we want to make sure you can afford to keep it should the unexpected happen.

Unfortunately, life-changing events happen to people every day. They might be diagnosed with a critical illness like cancer or have an accident that turns their life upside down. We have all seen the worst effects of Covid-19 at work too. If this happened to you, having some extra money in place could make the difference between keeping, and losing your home.

It’s a difficult issue to think about but you would be surprised how quickly life can change when you’re dealing with a health setback, and how quickly the savings you’ve worked hard to accumulate can disappear if you’re unable to work.

We can help eliminate the risk of losing your home

While there is no insurance that can prevent these things from happening, you can eliminate the risk of losing your home with critical illness cover. This type of insurance is designed to provide you with a lump sum if you find yourself unable to work through serious illness. This money could help you maintain your standard of living while you’re ill and help pay the bills while you’re getting back on your feet. It might also help you pay for private medical care, or to see a consultant who specialises in your condition. It could even help to pay for alterations to your home, if that’s what you need.

There are many extremely practical and cost-effective options that we can discuss. If you already have plans in place, we can assess them and reassure you whether they are still sufficient for your needs (you may be missing out on better quality cover that is now available).

So, if you have any questions or concerns about financially protecting you, your family and your home, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Until then, please stay safe and stay well.
