Home Buyers Protection Insurance

Cover against property purchases falling through.

Making an offer on a house comes with all sorts of expenses, including surveyors’ fees and lenders fees, but what happens if the purchase falls through? The fees aren’t reimbursed, which leaves you out of pocket and out of a home. However, you can avoid the financial loss if you have Home Buyers Protection Insurance. Surewise.com’s comprehensive and affordable Home Buyers Protection Insurance covers you against any losses suffered when property purchases aren’t completed through no fault of your own.

You can choose between 3 levels of cover: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Property purchases fall through for a lot of reasons, including sellers withdrawing their property from sale, problems with mortgage applications and being gazumped – which is when your offer is accepted but the seller later decides to accept a higher offer.

First-time home buyers aren’t always aware of these risks, which is why it’s so important for house hunters to become as familiar with everything property purchase-related, including Home Buyers Protection Insurance. Many home buyers who have made their way up the property ladder ensure that they have Home Buyers Protection Insurance in place as soon as their offer has been accepted – just in case.
