  • - a significant reduction in the borrower’s earnings;

We can insure your real estate for the property’s actual (market) value. Thus, in case of destruction or loss of the property, the compensation paid by LEXGARANT will, as well as helping you repay the loan, cover some of the costs associated with restoring the property to its original condition.

We can provide the following:

  • - named perils property insurance of the mortgaged property;
  • - life insurance, insurance of the life and health of the borrower, including disability insurance of the borrower;
  • - insurance of the loss of the right to own the mortgaged property;
  • - insurance of the occupier’s liability of the owner/occupier of the immovable property (civil liability insurance);
  • - mortgage indemnity insurance.

Where applicable LEXGARANT can provide some of the covers listed above together under one insurance policy. The covers can also be provided separately.

The process of taking out this type of insurance

We try to simplify our procedures as much as possible.

For the purposes of taking out a property insurance or a civil liability insurance or a payment protection insurance all you need to do is to fill in a proposal form, based on which we can make a decision as to whether to grant a cover for the risk in question.

For the purposes of obtaining life and disability insurance we can make a decision on providing cover without a medical examination, based on your answers in the proposal form, provided the sum insured does not exceed 5,000,000 Roubles. Only if the sum insured exceeds 5,000,000 Roubles will we ask you to undergo a medical examination.

If you are taking out insurance to protect your title to the property, we will need to study the copies of the relevant title documents and to verify the accuracy of some of the information contained in them.


Payment of the insurance compensation where your claim has been accepted by LEXGARANT is made within 15 working days after receipt of all the necessary documents.
