Business / Debt / Mortgage Protection: Term assurance to cover the repayment of a mortgage in the event of the death of the mortgagor during the period of the loan.In the case of a repayment mortgage the capital sum outstanding is gradually reduced over the term of the loan (albeit slowly during the initial years when the majority of the repayments are paying the interest) so that decreasing term assurance would be incorporated in the policy. For an endowment mortgage where the sum assured and the death benefit are at least equal to the amount of the loan throughout the term of the loan, level term assurance would be apt.
