It is also known as homeownersproperty insurance. Most companies do not provide or cover a wide range of natural or accidental disasters, so if it is not in their policy then it is better to get a mortgage hazard insurance. It is not necessary that the homeowner must buy the entire package, depending on the area prone to a certain disaster a separate package will be offered.
Of course insurance cannot be provided so easily, the insurance company first checks that you have enough money to cover the package, which is checked by how much down payment you have paid. There is mortgage hazard insurance with a premium package in which the homeowner has to pay for at least 12 months. This premium is calculated on the house itself and how much value it holds, and the area in which it was built the strength and age of the house also matter. A point that must be mentioned here is that when signing the contract read the policies properly so the homeowner does not get duped in the end. Check thoroughly that how much your insurance cover and it will cover what.

If the only breadwinner of the family dies, the spouse can apply for this policy. But the cover depends on the policy and the insurance companies itself. Some companies provide mortgage payment protection insurance to unemployed, some to disabled people, and sometimes to everybody, but evidence is required that whether that unemployment is true of just a fraud.
