Lender's Mortgage Insurance (LMI)
LMI protects a bank against potential loss in the event of default by the borrower, where the sale of a bank's security fails to clear the loan in full. The insurance protects the bank, not the borrower. In most cases, banks have a preferred LMI provider, and they will require that borrowers purchase insurance from that provider. The lender, not the borrower, arranges LMI although the borrower pays for it.
