Insurance claims

Mortgage Insurance Lawyers

Work with mortgage insurance lawyers that fight policy disputes in Toronto and across Canada.

We offer a free consultation and no fees unless you win.

Two types of mortgage insurance exist: mortgage life and mortgage disability insurance. They protect property owners unable to make mortgage payments due to illness or death, paying off the mortgage or covering monthly payments for a set period. These policies are typically purchased at the time you negotiate your mortgage and paid to the lender upon approval.

Mortgage disability claims may be denied if you’re deemed able to work, as defined in the policy. Denials for both mortgage life and mortgage disability claims often result from coverage disputes related to alleged misrepresentation at policy purchase, reviewed by a mortgage insurance lawyer.

Mortgage Insurance Lawyers Can Help

If denied your mortgage insurance claim, you might not know where to turn next. You may feel hopeless now, but rest assured you’re not alone. When you call Share Lawyers, you will speak with someone who knows what it means to have your policy denied and can offer you the best possible advice at no cost to you. Our mortgage insurance lawyers can help you in your time of need.

How much time do I have?

There are time limits to all disability claims and any delay in proceeding may be subject to a deadline so you should not delay in proceeding with your disability claim or obtaining legal advice to clarify these deadlines. We understand how important these timelines are and will respond to any call or email as soon as we can.

Our Lawyers Can Help with Mortgage Insurance Denials

Mortgage insurance is designed to pay off a mortgage (or several mortgage payments) in case of death or a disabling condition. This insurance is typically purchased as part of a mortgage application with your financial institution, and an approved mortgage insurance policy would pay mortgage payments to the financial institution.

Claims are often denied because of the way the insurance was taken out. A short medical questionnaire you’re asked to fill out will be scrutinized against your medical records, and any pre-existing condition not disclosed can cause an immediate denial of the policy.
