Good companies as well as bad ones go out of business for a variety of reasons. IWA administers a scheme underwritten by FCA authorised insurers. Work carried out by IWA approved companies can have the benefit of Deposit Protection and a Guarantee Insurance for up to 10 years.
Since 1989 IWA has been one of the leading organisations in the UK to administer Deposit Protection and Guarantee Insurance to consumers within the home improvement market.
At the time of paying a deposit you should be issued with a Deposit Protection certificate from your IWA approved supplier or Direct from IWA. This document will protect your deposit, prior to the commencement of the contract for up to 25% of the contract value, subject to the terms and conditions on the certificate. Without a policy your deposit is not protected.
Once your contract has been completed to your satisfaction and you have paid the IWA approved company the balance in full, your IWA Guarantee Insurance will commence. You may register your satisfaction by completing the tear off slip on the policy and return it to IWA. Your contract will be insured for a period of up to ten years and is underwritten by FCA authorised Insurers, subject to the terms and conditions on the Certificate. Without a policy your guarantee is not insured.
If you were not issued a policy by the IWA approved company, you may contact IWA on 01604 604511 who will arrange via the IWA approved company or direct from IWA the provision of a policy, at which point a payment may apply.
