When it comes to protecting your home, ANZ has a range of insurance products to match your needs.
Our insurance products make it possible for you to purchase your home with a deposit of as little as 5% of the property value, protect your mortgage repayments if your circumstances change and find peace of mind, knowing your home and contents are looked after.
Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is required if you are borrowing more than 80% of the property’s value. LMI protects the lender against non-payment or if you default on your residential property loan.
LMI also makes it possible for eligible customers to buy a home with a deposit as small as 5% of the property value.
How does it work?
LMI is a one-off fee paid by borrowers when they take out a home loan. Fees vary according to the amount borrowed and the size of your deposit.
In the event that the lender needs to sell their property and the proceeds do not fully repay the loan, the lender can make a claim for the difference from the insurer. In that case, the borrower is still legally liable to repay the insurer.
With an ANZ Family Guarantee, you may be able to avoid paying the premium for LMI.
Benefits of LMI
While LMI is primarily about protecting the lender there are also benefits for the borrower.
- It allows buyers to buy a home sooner with a smaller deposit.
- When trading up, it can increase your choice of properties by allowing you access to a wider price range.
- It allows borrowers to retain some of their capital for other purposes - buying a car or investing in shares.
Mortgage Protection Insurance is designed to protect you, should anything happen that might affect your ability to repay your mortgage, such as losing your job, serious illness, disability or death.
With Mortgage Protection Insurance disability cover, your mortgage repayments can be covered for up to 30 months per claim if you suffer from illness or injury.
Furthermore, if you become involuntarily unemployed, Mortgage Protection Insurance can help you meet your repayments for up to 90 days per claim.
