Top reasons for purchasing property insurance

Purchasing your first home can be one of the most important financial decisions you will make in your lifetime. The financial investment can be huge, and if anything happens to you before the bond is repaid, it can leave your family in a rather precarious position.

Luckily, there are ways to avoid this becoming a problem.

When buying your new home, you will most likely need to take out a mortgage. It is best advised to couple the purchase of your first home or property with sufficient insurance. Consequently, a good financial service provider will encourage you to take out property cover to reduce stress in the event of damage or loss. As long as there is a bond in place, you will also be required to take out life cover in order to ensure that the bond is covered should something happen to you. 

Why do you need property insurance?

There are many reasons that property insurance can be an important investment in the security of your asset. Here are a two of the top reasons:

  1. Damage and destruction. First of all, if your home gets damaged by fire, natural disasters and/or theft; property insurance covers your repairs without wasting time and money. This not only protects your property from damage and destruction but also the wellbeing of your family and belongings inside.
  2. Financial security in death. Property cover ensures that you will not lose your home in the unfortunate event of death, disability or loss of income. If the mortgage payer passes, this can leave the rest of the family in a tight financial situation. As a result, property insurance relieves this stress by covering the outstanding debts and provides your family with financial security. Life cover, offered by MiWayLife, fulfils the same service of relieving your family from financial burden in these unfortunate circumstances.

MiWayLife offers the opportunity to invest in your investments by providing life insurance.  As a result of their expert advice, you can be assured that your family and belongings are covered in death.
