Home Warranties


How does it work?

 If a home system or appliance breaks down or stops working, you call the home warranty company.

 Your home warranty company will call a service provider it has a business arrangement with.

 The service provider will call you to make an appointment.

 The service provider will fix the problem. If an appliance or system is malfunctioning and can’t be repaired, depending on your contract coverage, your home warranty company will pay to replace and install the appliance.

 You will pay a small trade service fee (usually less than $100).

What’s not covered? Check your specific policy, but in general: l Outdoor items such as sprinklers l Faucets l Refrigerators, washers, dryers and garage door openers l Spas and pools, unless specific coverage requested l Permit fees l Haul aways.

What can cause a denial of a claim? l Improper maintenance l Code violations l Unusual wear and tear l Improper installation

General coverage includes:  l Air conditioning  l Dishwashers  l Doorbells  l Furnace/heating systems  l Water heaters  l Ductwork  l Garbage disposals  l Inside plumbing stoppages  l Ceiling fans  l Electrical systems  l Range and oven  l Telephone wiring.

You can also purchase plans that cover more such as sewage systems and sometimes sprinkler systems or even a hot tubs. It's left up to you the Home Buyer or the Seller to decide just what kind of coverage you feel is best.
