Cna Insurance has urged intermediaries who dealt with Northampton-based Servico to contact Special Risks Insurance Brokers with details of all business written under Servico's motor scheme.

CNA withdrew its underwriting facilities from Servico on January 30. CNA had been underwriting for Servico since August 1 last year.

CNA has now appointed London-based broker Special Risks to coordinate the issue of documents for Servico business and has issued a notice to brokers and policyholders requesting details, such as gross and net premium, premium collected and paid and cancellation date.

In early February, brokers complained that Servico had not issued documentation for some weeks. They also said Servico staff refused to confirm that CNA had withdrawn its agency.

However, CNA has said it would consider any business written by Servico after January 30 on a case-by-case basis.

A CNA spokesman said: “If it's shown that the broker had bound the business after January 30, 2001, but didn't know that the agency had been terminated, we will, in all likelihood, honour the quote. However, we do want to consider each case individually.”

Servico boss Stephen Arnold did not return calls by the Insurance Times.
