A mortgage lender or titleholder is covered by a mortgage insurance
policy in the event that a borrower fails on payments, dies, or
is otherwise unable to uphold the mortgage's contractual duties.
Private mortgage insurance (PMI), qualifying mortgage insurance
premium (MIP) insurance, and mortgage title insurance are
all examples of mortgage insurance
The responsibility to make the lender or property
holder whole in the event of particular loss is what unites these.
