Mortgage insurance is mortgage insurance, usually sold to the applicant at the closing of the purchase of a house. At the title company. It has nothing to do with life insurance, per se, because upon death of the insured, the LOAN is paid off. The survivor RECEIVED NO CHECK.Life insurance, on the other hand, has nothing to do with mortgage insurance. Upon death of the insured, the SURVIVOR, not the title company, receives a check for the amount of the death benefit. You cannot find the word mortgage on what is euphemistically called by the agent "MORTAGE LIFE INSURANCE".The same answer applies, in general, to the question what is term life insurance.Mortgage life insuranceMortgage life insurance is a form of decreasing term life insurance. It pays off your mortgage if you die. Mortgage life insurance is often confused with Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). You buy mortgage life voluntarily to protect your survivors from having to make the monthly payments. But with Private Mortgage Insurance, lenders require you to buy a policy in order to protect them (the lenders) against the possibility that you will default on the debt.Mortgage life insurance is a life insurance policy that one would take out on themselves or another person involved in a mortgage take out on a home or business so that if they should die the mortgage can be paid off. As the amount of the mortgage is paid down the amount of life insurance received is lowered. This type of life insurance will never pay more than the amount of the remaining mortgage.Given the relatively low cost of term life insurance on a healthy person, one might consider buying a decreasing term life insurance policy at the inception of the mortgage, rather than as part of the real estate transaction. The trick is to correlate the period of the decreasing term with the amortization of the mortgage.

The term Mortgage Insurance can mean different things to different people and in a variety of situations. I have heard it refer to life insurance designed to pay off a mortgage balance due to death of an insured person. another type of Mortgage Insurance is products such a PMI, which indemnifies a bank or mortgage company in the case of a default on a mortgage loan. In this type of mortgage insurance the person who takes out the loan pays the premiums through their house payments, but will not receive any benefit from the insurance as the only one who gets paid is the bank or mortgage company. The insurance company can then still come after the borrower for the amount of their loss.
hazard insurance is another way to say homeowners insurance - they should be referring to the same thing
"Most people do not understand the purpose of PMI insurance. I know it is to protect the mortgage company from risk, but it almost seems like it's just another fee to add to the payment."

Mortgage insurance is required when you have less than 20% down or equity in your home. Once you reach that percentage of ownership, you can cancel the insurance. Hazard insurance is different. Most Morgagees (Lenders) have a clause that forces you to continually have hazard insurance without lapses or they will assign insurance for you. The assigned insurance generally is more expensive than all other alternatives. If you cancel your current hazard insurance you would likely receive a refund but it would be unwise to cancel without getting insurance from another company... and especially unwise to spend the money. Your payments would not go down, but likely up because of the assigned insurance.
Do you have another life insurance of sufficient amount to cover mortgage, then you do not need extra mortgage insurance. Any way it is also a simple life insurance policy, just named differently to get more business. It is not essential. Life insurance is not private mortgage insurance (PMI) PMI covers the lender if you default on the loan. Basically you are paying for insurance for the lender. Once the loan is 80% or below the property value the lender will usually cancel the requirement for PMI. You do have the right you choose your own private mortgage insurer, as long as they are approved to do business with your lender. You can ask your lender for the premiums of each of their carriers and decide for yourself which you want to use. The prices from various carriers are virtually the same for borrowers with good credit, however if you have poor credit the rates can vary widely and it is worth your time to as the question.
Mortgage insurance, also known as private mortgage insurance or PMI, is a mortgage guarantee insurance provided by a private insurer. The policy is security for your mortgage company or lender in the event that you are not able to make payments on your mortgage loan. In other words, if you default on your mortgage payments the insurer will compensate the mortgage company for their financial loss.Generally speaking avoiding PMI, entails coming up with a 20% down payment when purchasing your home to avoid paying a mortgage insurance premium.PMI charges vary slightly but as a homeowner you can typically expect to pay about $40-$50 each month per $100,000 financed. For example, for a $200,000 loan you might pay almost $100 per month in mortgage insurance or over $1,000 each year. Clearly, the larger your mortgage payment is the larger your mortgage insurance payment will be.Keep in mind that that once you reach a 20% equity position in your property, you can have your property reappraised and your mortgage insurance payment can be eliminated. In rapidly appreciating real estate markets this process may only take two to five years. This is one way to save money with mortgage insurance; keep track of your equity position and request to have your PMI payment dropped when you reach 20%. Remember that mortgage insurance premiums are not tax deductible and this is one more reason you want to get rid of your PMI payment as soon as possible.Mortgage Insurance And The LawAll home mortgages executed on or after July 29, 1999, must - with certain exceptions – terminate PMI automatically when you reach 22 per cent equity in your home if your mortgage payments are current. This 22% position is based on the original property value. Your mortgage insurance also can be canceled, upon your request - with some exceptions - when you reach 20 per cent equity in your home based on the original loan to value ration, again, if your mortgage payments are current.One exception to the above-referenced scenario is when your loan is considered high-risk. Another exception is when you have not been current with your payments within the year preceding your request for termination or cancellation of your mortgage insurance payment. A third exception to the rule occurs when you have other liens on your property. For these other loans, your lender is permitted to continue assessing mortgage insurance payments. Check with your lender or mortgage servicer (the company that collects your mortgage payments) for more specific information concerning these requirementsSecond Way To SaveA second option is available when it comes to saving on mortgage insurance payments (or avoiding them altogether) is obtaining a second loan to make up the short fall. If you have a 5% down payment available you can usually obtain a second mortgage for 15% to avoid a mortgage insurance payment. Be cautious with this approach as many unsuspecting homeowners end up paying more for their second mortgage than they would if they simply paid the PMI. Double check all of your financial assumptions when going this route. It may even be in your interest to check with your trusted financial professional.
Usually a level term life insurance policy would be used for mortgage loan life insurance protection. Level term offers coverage for a duration of 10, 15, 20 or 30 years with a level premium and level amount of coverage provided by the policy for the entire duration of coverage. Another option is decreasing term life insurance where the premiums remain level but the amount of life insurance coverage decreases each year throughout the life of the term insurance policy.
You can't 'transfer' your mortgage to another property. The bank owns the mortgage lien. You would need to negotiate with the bank to modify its lien.
Mortgage life insurance is one of the most important life insurance policies a person who owns a home can buy. Since the ownership of this home is probably the largest investment for most people it is imperative that your investment be protected in the event of premature death with a mortgage life insurance policy. I want to take some time to discuss alternative plans that can be used to do this.What will happen to your family when you die? Will they be provided for? Life Insurance is the solution and we can help. Compare Multiple Quotes from Highly Ranked Carriers and Save up to 70%!Here is a company that helps you determine precisely which mortgage life policy is best. You will find that you may need your mortgage term policy for specific periods of time. Instead of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 year term you can select 12 years or 17 years for example. * Mortgage Insurance What really is mortgage insurance? Mortgage life insurance pays off the balance owed to the bank or mortgage company in case of your premature death. Let us assume you have a $100,000 25 year mortgage on your house. Let us also assume that after 5 years you have a balance owed of $95,000. Incidentally that figure is not as impractical as it sounds. Your principal decreases very slowly in the early years. Back to our discussion...You now believe you should take out some mortgage insurance because you now have a new baby. What you need is a 20 year decreasing term policy which would usually be sufficient if you should die anywhere within the mortgage period. That is what mortgage insurance is all about. Some people add the waiver of premium benefit in case they should become disabled for at least 6 months. The life insurance company will pay the premium for them during their disability even if it is for the rest of their lives. As an alternative to the decreasing term policy some policy owners use a 20 year term policy. If that person should die when there is only $50,000 owed for example, they have a little extra to put in the pockets of the beneficiary. $50,000 to the bank and the other $50,000 to the beneficiary. There is another alternative mortgage life insurance plan if you have some cash to play with. * Mortgage Redemption And Cancellation Insurance Here is how this works. Let us use the above situation as an example. You are at the 5 year point just like in the mortgage life insurance example. What you do is buy a whole life, variable universal life or variable life insurance policy for $95,000, which is the amount owed on the mortgage. You are putting out a lot more premium but if this works right you will be happy about your decision. If you die before the mortgage is paid off the insurance policy will pay it off. As you may or may not know your whole life or variable life policy accumulates cash value. Here is the beauty of the plan...you get both mortgage life insurance and mortgage redemption life insurance in one. There are no guarantees, but at some time between the 5 year point and the 25 year point the cash value of your policy will be equal to the amount owed on the mortgage. You can cash out the policy or take a loan on it and pay off the balance of the mortgage. You would have redeemed your mortgage. You now own your house free and clear. Now is that not a great idea or what? Mortgage Life Insurance or Mortgage Redemption And Cancellation Insurance...you get a good deal. Don't you agree?
No. You have no authority to transfer a mortgage unless you are the lender. The lender can assign its rights under the mortgage to another lender. If you are the owner of the property transferring the property to another will violate the terms of the mortgage and may incur added expense to the foreclosure costs.
Home Insurance is form of risk transference. For a stated premium you transfer the risk of loss for the specified covered perils to another party. Namely, the Insurance Company. Suppose you have no home insurance, and you have a kitchen fire that grows into a total loss of your home. You would be left with a pile of ashes that you can not live in and still owing thousands of dollars to a mortgage company for a home that no longer exists. So long as you have the appropriate coverage your insurer would cover your losses and provide funds to repair or even replace you home if necessary. Additionally most Home Mortgage companies require as a part of your home mortgage contract that you maintain a home hazard insurance policy to protect you and the mortgage company from just this type of loss.
If you own the home in question (the title is in your name), you can deduct mortgage interest. If you are renting out the home, you can deduct some of the costs of having it as a rental, but I am not sure about the insurance. If you are renting the house only, without ownership, you may not deduct the interest.
