Mortgage and Rent Cover:

SkipNav

Simple, affordable protection with no financial underwriting

Mortgage and Rent Cover can protect your client's monthly mortgage or rental payment should they be unable to work due to illness or injury.

Our cover is a great option for your clients who are just getting on, or trying to get on the property ladder. It's also useful for clients with irregular earnings who may struggle to get traditional income protection. Mortgage and Rent Cover includes a number of features with them in mind:

  • Cover is based on your client’s monthly mortgage or rental payment. The minimum amount of cover available is £100 and the maximum is £2,000 per month.
  • No financial underwriting is required upon application. Your client will just need to show you documentary evidence at application to show the regular mortgage or rental payment that they’re legally responsible for.
  • Our Mortgage and Rent Guarantee means we guarantee we’ll pay the full chosen amount of cover throughout the claim.
  • Includes a range of guaranteed increase options so your client has flexibility to increase their amount of cover.
  • 'Pay my mortgage' facility offered for clients with a mortgage so they can choose to have all or some of their claim payments paid directly to their lender.
  • Part of the LV= Flexible Protection Plan, our menu plan.
  • Includes access to LV= Doctor Services and our Member Care Line.
