home warranty insurance consumer reports

Then we finally got a fantastic company out to look and quote the unit. It needs replacing, they filled the proper paperwork and we went on with our business. I was told it could take a week to get it approved with the part. 3 weeks pass. We have no part and we found out our claim was denied and we have to send out home inspection for our claim to be reviewed. I was told this on 7/16. I sent the home inspection while on the phone with Shaneka . I was told 24 48 hours, but I told them the house is 90 degrees every single day, can we speed this up?No. They cannot. So I waited and called back Wednesday. No movement and no one to talk to.

If you recognize that you are paying for something that may never be needed going in, then when you have a loss, you recognize the benefit. The 50 70 per loss/claim is your deductible, which you have to pay on any coverage, cell phone, auto, homeowners, etc. Each and every claim is a new loss. With that said, I will say, I had a home warranty on my "home from hell" in California, and Thank God we had it. They paid for a new furnace, new water heater, new well pump, just to mention a few things. Yes, I had to pay my deductible each time, but the $500 600 warranty paid for itself over and over in that home.

They HWC’s want to control the contractor sent out so they can put the contractor with the lowest avg. cost per invoice out first. I was told I replaced too much equipment!I suggest to other contractors not to get on this treadmill!They give the business to you, and they can take it away just as fast. Contractors’ end up treating the warranty company like the customer, I never agreed with that. When the warranty company dumps you as a business for the next cheap service guy, then all you have left is the bad reputation. AHS came with my home, and the evaporative cooler stopped working within 30 days of buying my home. The contractor said it was the cooling pads, which was not covered. The AHS contractor failed to answer my questions in a knowledgeable way, and I hired another contractor who stated the problem was the motor. For a fair price, he replaced the motor and pads. Motor replacement was specifically covered in the AHS warranty, but AHS continued to deny the claim. I got some good advice for sellers of homes: put up a $1500 escrow fund for the buyer when you sell a home the typical maximum amount for home warranty companied with appropriate terms and conditions for use of the funds for 6 months to 1 year after sale.
