Thousands of new build homeowners could be without 10-year structural defects insurance following unrated Alpha’s collapse. Many may not be aware of this, therefore Build-Zone are urging all Alpha Insurance Warranty policyholders to speak to them for guidance, even if you are not sure if you might be at risk.

Build-Zone have an interactive Form that you can access here. Anyone seeking further advice and guidance can provide basic details and they will then get back to you.

It was not just Warranty Clients that were left high and dry – London Taxi Drivers insured through the broker Protector were informed by text and email!

There will be quite a number of policyholders affected, with the scale of the impact of the insurer’s collapse still emerging and the CML and their Members still remaining silent. It will affect Lenders given that they insist on Structural Warranties being provided as a condition of the Loans.  Many Homeowners and Lenders may still be unaware that they are no longer insured!

The Danish regulator and the UK’s FCA have been stressing the importance of rearranging cover.

Build-Zone would like all Alpha Construction Latent Defects Policyholders to ensure that are informed about what steps are now going to be taken to protect these now uninsured homes.

The risk of using unrated insurers is not just hypothetical — it is very real.

If you are an Alpha Insurance A/S customer with a Construction Latent Defects Policy and you:

  • Require an insurance policy with an A-rated insurer.
  • Have a project in the pipeline as quoted by a Broker using Alpha Insurance A/S and need assistance on your project.
  • Or, you want to change your Insurance Broker and use an A-rated insurer.
