Why choose Insurance Guarantees?

Insurance guarantees can only be provided by professional and vetted companies who have proven financial stability, an extensive level of technical and practical expertise, strictly adhere to industry codes of practice and are compliant to relevant Health and Safety legislation.

Insurance guarantees offer upto 10 years of protection for a small one-off fee which is subject to (IPT) Insurance Premium Tax showing that you are buying official insurance.
Beware, If you are not paying IPT then it's not insurance. Except Channel Isles & Isle of Man.

Unlike other guarantees available Insurance guarantees are specific to the property and do not need to be reassigned to subsequent owners in order to remain valid.

What is an insured guarantee and how does that differ from an insurance-backed guarantee?

All insurance policies carry insurance premium tax (IPT), insurance-backed guarantees don't, showing that they are not genuine insurance.

Insurance-backed guarantees usually consist of annual calamity insurance with the policy in the name of the guarantee company. The guarantee you get for your property is simply issued by the guarantee company and there is no actual insurance on your property. Should the guarantee company fail to make its annual payment then the calamity insurance drops out.

'Insurance-backed' guarantee companies and manufacturers are regulated by nobody therefore there is no compensation scheme, consequently there is no protection for the customer. Many manufacturers and guarantee companies have gone out of business, leaving customers with worthless pieces of paper.

Other guarantee companies and manufacturers offer 30 year guarantees - your insurance is only for 10 years.

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) has only approved long-term guarantees up to 10 years. Therefore if you have been offered a thirty year guarantee this, is NOT official insurance and likely to be 'Insurance backed' by a manufacturer.
