What is an IBG?

An IBG, is an insurance policy that provides cover for a guarantee in the event the company that issued the guarantee ceases to trade, meaning when it is legally brought to an end because it cannot pay its debts.

A guarantee insurance policy provides cover in the event that a company that has given a guarantee to a customer ceases to trade, meaning when it is legally brought to an end because it cannot pay its debts. If there is subsequently a problem with the installation that would otherwise have been resolved by the installer’s guarantee, a claim can be submitted to the IBG provider (assuming the homeowner in question has a policy). Please note the policy is subject to Terms and Conditions which can be found within your IBG documentation.

An IBG would have been issued by Installsure to you when you received your FENSA certificate. Please check your policy prior to contacting Installsure.

What is Section 75?

Section 75 is a UK consumer protection law which means your credit provider has the same responsibility as the company you’ve bought something from should anything go wrong with the purchase.

It’s a legal requirement of your lender so that a consumer is never in a position of having to pay off debt on a product they didn’t receive or the final product wasn’t as it should have been. This applies to all purchases made with a credit card or via a loan for anything between £100 and £30,000. If it’s bought with credit, the lender is as responsible as the supplier. Please be aware, that if only part of the payment was made using credit, you are still eligible to make a Section 75 claim if you fall within the £100 - £30,000 threshold.  

To make a Section 75 claim you’ll need to contact your credit provider. So if you bought the product on a credit card it will be the credit card company rather than Visa or Mastercard.

RISA carry out assessments of Section 75 claims when it come to the replacement of windows and doors in a domestic setting and you can download a template Section 75 claims letter to send to your credit provider via their website.
