GPI Guarantee Insurance
GPI provides specialist insurance cover which relates to the property rather than the owner. This means that if you sell your property, the insurance is automatically transferred free of charge to the new owners. This can help to add value to the selling price of your property and provide comfort to any potential buyers.
The insurance, which is a modest, one-off payment, provides cover for up to ten or twenty years, dependent on the type of work carried out. The insurance comes into force if your contractor is no longer trading and covers their liability to you (subject to GPI terms and conditions).
Who is GPI?
Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd (GPI) is a UK based general insurer, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. With over 25 years’ experience, GPI is a long-term player in the UK Insurance Market.
GPI specialises in the provision of insurance backed guarantees. This is an insurance product specifically designed to protect consumers who find themselves in a situation such as that detailed above.
How GPI works for damp proofing
If a defect covered by the contractor’s original written damp proofing guarantee develops, and the original company has ceased to trade, a GPI insurance policy will pay for another damp proofing contractor to remedy the work. In simple terms, GPI ensures your guarantee.
What it covers
GPI can offer insurance for guarantees issued on wood-boring beetle, wood rot, rising damp, replacement wall ties and structural waterproofing.
Benefits of using GPI
- A one-off premium payment will protect your guarantee for up to 10 years

- An Insurance policy is provided specifically for each individual property
