A tenant that falls into arrears can jeopardise your ability to meet your mortgage repayments. If you fall into arrears with your mortgage repayments you risk losing your property. Rent guarantee insurance covers you if tenants default on their rent and protects your ability to pay your mortgage. Some policies also cover any associated legal costs.

Think carefully before securing debt against your home, your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
