Can I cancel the life insurance linked to a mortgage once the operation has been granted? What rights do I have?
Hiring a life insurance with the mortgage is highly recommended so as not to leave burdens on your family if you miss before you have finished paying the debt. However, that does not mean that it is mandatory to take out a life policy linked to the mortgage, much less that you have to do it with the bank.
In fact, the mortgage law is very clear when it comes to insurance linked to mortgages. Law 5/2019, of March 15, regulating real estate credit contracts, expressly prohibits tied sales. In other words, banks cannot force the client to contract any other product. What the law does allow are combined sales; that is, that the bank offers conditions especially in the operation, such as reduced interest, when contracting life insurance or another type of policy.
If you have contracted the life insurance linked to the mortgage and you want to cancel it, for whatever reason, you have to know that YES you can cancel it, in certain circumstances.
- You can cancel a mortgage-linked life insurance (annual renewable or financed single premium) within 30 days of activation.
- In the case of annual renewal insurance, if more than 30 days have passed, you will have to wait for the next renewal and request the cancellation at least 30 days in advance.
