Change of Ownership
If you already have CWI backed by the protection of the 25 year CIGA Guarantee then you should only need to contact us if you think you have a problem.
CIGA can provide confirmation of cover or a duplicate Guarantee for Sellers who have not been able to produce the original Document*.
Please note – CIGA is becoming ever more vigilant in ensuring that we have secure measures in place to protect our guarantee holders and we take identity theft very seriously. Unfortunately, we continue to have a number of approaches from unscrupulous companies claiming to be the homeowner to secure guarantee data. To make sure that we really are speaking to you about your property we ask that you provide 2 documents as proof of ownership when querying any guarantee information. E.g. if a guarantee exists for the property or to report a concern. (1 document must be a current utility bill)
If you are concerned or feel you have been a victim of identity theft please report your concern to action fraud.
* Duplicate guarantees are £48.00 inclusive of VAT
Please note cash payment will not be accepted and shall be returned. CIGA does not store credit/debit card information.
