With a policy designed specifically for second homeowners in the UK and overseas, the official BIBA Holiday Home insurance scheme can provide suitable cover that owners of holiday homes and second homes may need for a wide variety of property types.
BIBA Holiday Home insurance scheme is a British product specifically created for owners of holiday and second homes in the UK and over 40 countries overseas. Whether the property is left unoccupied when not in use or, is rented out, Intasure’s policies can provide cover for different types of properties in the UK and overseas.
As FCA-authorised firms, BIBA members are very likely permitted to arrange insurance policies for your EU customers because of ‘passporting rights’ which exist between the UK and the rest of the EU. At the end of the transition period, the UK will no longer be part of the EU and passporting rights are unlikely to be available to your members.
The interpretation of what constitutes an EU customer may vary from firm to firm, but Intasure has taken the position that any customers resident in the EU will need to be provided with services through a company in the EU. As such, Intasure are providing services for customers located in the EU from another Gallagher company in the EU, Nordic Försäkring & Riskhantering AB (“Nordic, trading as Intasure”), which is authorised as an insurance broker in Sweden by the Swedish regulator, the Finansinspektionen.
As a precaution, we recommend that your members review their customer base to identify whether any issues would arise for them as a result of the end of the transition period. At this time we expect that UK businesses, will cease to have the passporting rights to operate in the EU on 1 January 2021.
If you do not have a solution to deal with EU customers following the end of the transition period, Intasure would be happy to discuss alternative placement arrangements with you.
