QANW is UK leading provider of insurance backed guarantees and latent defect insurance products for the home improvement and general construction industries. The guarantees and insurance policies conform to all the relevant criteria within ‘The Code’, ‘The Framework’ and Ofgem guidelines for ECO guarantees. With the launches of the Green Deal the Energy Company Obligation and with the Government’s corresponding aim of promoting the installation of carbon-reduction measures, Warranty Services Limited has seen fit to launch Kinnell Green Deal and Kinnell ECO; whose aims are to support Green Deal and ECO, respectively, through the provision of long-term insured guarantee solutions.
The insurance products provided by Kinnell ECO and Kinnell Green Deal are underwritten by a UK based insurer which is authorised and regulated by the both the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Conduct Authority. Eligible policyholders benefit from rights of recourse to both the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme; for dispute resolution and statutory compensation respectively.
Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation demand, from stakeholders, long-term guarantee solutions to protect customers. This is of the utmost importance with respect to cavity and solid wall insulation, where such guarantees are expected to be for a minimum of 25 years. The bespoke insured protection provided by both Kinnell Green Deal and Kinnell ECO seeks to provide such protection, even in the event that the original guarantee provider ceases to trade.
