Halo 10 Year Guarantee

The Board of NZCB introduced a new policy in December 2015, making it mandatory for all Business Members of the Association to take out the Halo 10 Year Residential Guarantee on all residential projects that are over $30,000 inc gst. “Halo” is provided by BrokerWeb Risk Services Limited and is an insurance policy underwritten at the world’s leading insurer (Lloyd’s of London) carrying an A+ credit rating. This is a market leading guarantee which is exclusively offered through NZCB. Not only does it provide peace of mind for the homeowner but it also has a range of benefits direct to you, including ‘sleep easy’ coverage.
