Me and my girlfriend need a mortgage to buy a townhouse. Does this mean we'll also need insurance?

Thanks for your question! Yes, when you have a mortgage on your residence, you are required to carry homeowners insurance to make sure your home will be repaired or rebuilt in the event of a loss. Your mortgage lender wants to protect their investment in your property.
