The Financial Conduct Authority
The FCA is the independent watchdog that regulates financial services. Use this information to decide if our services are right for you.
Whose products do we offer?
We offer products from several insurers for home insurance. A list of insurers is available upon request. We only offer products from a single insurer for the following:
• Home Emergency
• Legal Expenses
• Key Cover
• Garden & Fence cover
Which service will we provide you with?
You will not receive advice or a recommendation from us for your home insurance. We may ask some questions to narrow down the selection of products that we will provide details on. You will then need to make your own choice about how to proceed.
What will you have to pay us for our services?
We do not charge any fee for the insurance services provided.

Are we covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)?
We are covered by the FSCS. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business, the circumstances of the claim and the eligibility of the claimant.
How do we handle your money?
We may hold money on your behalf, either paid by you to be passed on to insurers or paid to us by your insurers, to be passed on to you. For your protection, money received from you, or to be paid to you will be held by us in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority rules.
In most cases, we hold money as agent of the insurer under a ‘risk transfer’ process. Under risk transfer, we have an agreement with your insurer to hold money as their agent. Money we receive, either from you or from the insurer will therefore be the property of the insurer whilst we hold it. Therefore, if you pay money to us, it is treated as having been received by the insurer and if we do not pay it over to the insurer your policy will not be affected. Similarly, if the insurer pays claims money or a return premium to us for onward transmission to you and we do not pay you, then the insurer will still be liable to you. Where we do not use ‘risk transfer’, we will notify you separately.
