The importance of taking out life protection

Here at City Mortgage Solutions, we make a point of speaking to our clients about the importance of taking out life protection as part of any mortgage loan. Our job is not just to arrange finance, but also to offer advice on how our clients can protect that loan should any unforeseen situations arises.

One of our clients got in touch with us recently to let us know of their situation and how a protection plan has managed to have a positive impact on family life.

We are happy to be in a position to share their experience with Helping Hand from Royal London with you and the positive outcome that came from it:

A Helping Hand

…”I just wanted to say that  my son and I are having counselling offered as part of my life assurance which has been organised by Red Arc on its behalf.”

“I reached out to you a couple of years ago seeking recommendations for  legal  advice as I was going through a difficult time with my son, and as a consequence with my ex husband, as my son struggled with life in secondary school.”

I had no idea that [Helping Hand] private counselling was available to me and without your help I would not be in a position I am now.”

“Though the entitlement is for a handful of sessions, my son, and I for that matter, are different people and we have both hugely benefited from the professional support. It has changed our lives so much.

“He will continue to have some more private sessions as the block of seven within our allowance is expiring this week for both of us. I’m ok for now but I will privately find a few more for him.”

“That said I’m glad to say I don’t believe he’s got any serious underlying issues but as a teenager he’s just appreciating having someone independent who he can confide in.”

“Many thanks indeed for your help and support. One never appreciates those additional products that accompany a financial decision which you may think unnecessary until you find yourself in difficulty. I’m so glad for the support through life assurance that I would not have taken out had you not mentioned to me it’s benefits.”

A safety net for you and your family

Protection isn’t something that many clients understand but here at City Mortgage Solutions, it’s something we feel offers a vital service to compliment any mortgage loan.
