Banking Secrets Revealed, Why Pay More? Part III.
Recompense for loss, damage, or injuries; restitution or reimbursement.
An indemnity contract arises when one individual takes on the obligation to pay for any loss or damage that has been or might be incurred by another individual. The right to indemnity and the duty to indemnify ordinarily stem from a contractual agreement, which generally protects against liability, loss, or damage.
In a very simple general term, the insurers pay only the reinstatement or replaced the damaged in cash.
What is reinstatement?
Reinstatement means the insurer will replicate another building the same as before prior it has burnt or tore down. Nowadays, It is very tiresome to reconstruct from the insurer point of view. It is time-consuming.
The most prefer alternative choice for insurers is to indemnify in cash. Let us say that to reconstruction you damaged new house need only RM200,000.00. In the earlier, you take 90% margin loan of RM700,000. Thus the bank will require you to insured your new house for RM630,000.00. It the rate of premium is Rm0.17 per hundred. The total premium is RM1,071.00 (RM630,000 x 0.17) Thus , your pay extra premium (RM630,000-200000 x 0.17) = RM731.00 for the whole tenure of your housing loan. Isn’t it a wastage?
Who interest is the bank protected?. It is obviously, the bank, Not yours.
