The insurance cover we provide will give you peace of mind and let you focus on the things that matter. What follows are some of our most popular existing policies:

Life Insurance

Looking after your family and loved ones are up there with your most important priorities, which is why you should take out Life Insurance. The appropriate Life Insurance policy can ensure that your loved ones are protected from a precarious financial situation, in the form of a lump sum, after your death. We’ll ensure you’re armed with all the knowledge and further information to make an informed choice about the separate policies that are right for you.

Landlord Insurance

As a landlord in York, you have a responsibility to yourself to ensure your properties are kept in good condition and protected against damage, theft or burglary. These properties are big investments and, in some cases, are there to provide a future nest egg for your family. Landlord Insurance cover from Avail Mortgages will give you peace of mind and allow you to grow your property empire in York and beyond knowing there is protection in place should something happen that wasn’t your fault.

Income Protection Insurance

For most people, their income is the reason they can pay bills, buy food for their children and keep a roof over their head. It makes sense then, to consider Income Protection Insurance as something you need should the worst happen and you lose your job. Paid as a lump-sum, Income Protection Insurance ensures you can maintain a good standard of living for you and your loved ones. Our insurance brokers work to the highest standards and will be on hand to answer questions such as, ‘What is Income Protection Insurance?’ and ‘What types of Income Protection Insurance are there?’.

Tenants Contents Insurance

As a tenant, you get to enjoy many freedoms, such as the security of tenure and fewer financial responsibilities. While the property you’re staying in isn’t technically ‘owned’ by you it is no less your property for the time that you occupy it. This is reason enough to obtain Tenants Contents Insurance, because if a natural disaster occurs such as a storm, flood or fire, or you’re burgled, your valuable possessions could be destroyed or go missing. We’ll ensure that the Tenants Contents Insurance policies we offer you have real value and protect the things you love.

Business Loan Insurance

As a business owner, your business is very often your livelihood. To kickstart your business, you’ll have likely taken out a business loan which needs to be paid back over time. However, life isn’t always predictable, which is why you should think about a Business Loan Insurance policy in case you’re unable to pay back a business loan for whatever reason be it a critical illness to yourself or the death of a colleague.

Other Insurance Policies That We Offer

These popular insurance policies are just some of the many that we offer here at Avail Mortgages. Other policies that we offer include Critical Illness Insurance, Shareholder Protection Insurance, Private Medical Insurance and Keyperson Insurance.
