French Mortgage Insurance : English Spoken Service

You are planning to complete your real estate investment in France and need a personnal assistance in that perspective.

When contracting a real estate loan, insurance protects both the borrower and the credit institution. In fact, if the guarantee is called into play, the beneficiary of the benefits paid by the insurer is not the insured, but the credit institution. It is for this purpose that the bank acts as the accepting beneficiary of the mortgage loan insurance contract.

In practice, the home loan insurance contract offered to the future borrower is most often a group insurance contract (distributed by the bank). In this case, the credit institution has directly subscribed to the benefit of its borrowers an insurance contract (known as a group contract). However, the borrower may also, to guarantee his loan, have recourse to individual insurance (delegation of insurance).

As of July 1, 2009, future mortgage borrowers can compare loan insurance offers made to them by providing a standardized information sheet on borrower insurance. Prospective borrowers who present an aggravated health risk may experience difficulties in obtaining insurance. In this case, they can benefit from the conditions provided for in the french « AERAS agreement ». For more information on the provisions of this agreement, contact us for more information.

The Home Loan Insurance contract, taken out as a loan guarantee, is ancillary to the loan contract. Home loan insurance generally covers the risks of death, disability, incapacity and, for certain contracts, the risk of job loss. It is not compulsory insurance within the meaning of the Insurance Code; however, it is, in almost all cases, required by the lending institution for obtaining a mortgage.

French Mortgage Insurance : Definition

Mortgages are always subject to insurance cover. This means that the risk for not paying instalments owed to the bank are transferred to an insurer, in the event of a sudden loss of earnings following handicap or disability. It also avoids transferring the debt to your heirs in the event of death.

What do we mean by ‘Mortgage Insurance policy’ ?

A Mortgage insurance is an insurance policy product that protects your mortgage lender (bank generally) or in some specific cases a title holder in the event that the borrower (you) has a defaults on payments due to a death. This contract is in place in ordre to cover the risk that you could be unable to meet the contractual obligations of your mortgage lending.
