It is important that we are informed of the death of a mortgage holder as early as possible. The mortgage will need to continue to be paid until it can be cleared from a life assurance policy for example if one was taken out in conjunction with the mortgage. Interest will continue to be added to the mortgage account until the balance is cleared in full.
Alternatively, you or the representatives of the deceased’s Estate, such as a solicitor, can apply to postpone mortgage repayments for an initial period of 6 months. This will allow time for the life assurance claim to be finalised (if relevant) and for the outstanding balance to be cleared. If there is no life assurance policy in place then, the mortgage repayments must continue to be made until the mortgage is repaid in full.
If at any stage you feel you are unable to meet your regular mortgage repayments, contact Financial Solutions Group on 02890 821682 and they will discuss the options available to you.
