Performance Sureties for the Construction Industry

The Swedish construction industry is regulated by General Conditions Contracts (named AB04 and ABT06). These contracts stipulate the necessity of insurance and sureties between the parties, the Purchaser and the Contractor. RSG Construction & Specialty AB offers Performance Bonds in case of Contractors insolvency, one for the construction period and the other for the warranty period.

Hidden Defect Insurance, HDI

Hidden Defects are faults which exist in a property when you (as a private person) acquire it, but which you cannot reasonably discover at an inspection of the property or have reason to expect following the property’s age and construction.

As a seller (as a private person) of a property, you may be liable for these hidden defects if they are discovered after the new owner has moved in. This liability varies in time, depending on country legislation and type of property. RSG Construction & Specialty AB provides an insurance solution for this liability.
