HOME WARRANTIES SUCK!

Posted by at 12:00 pm 69 Comments Print

I have a basic problem with home warranties on used homes. It’s quite simple:  They don’t cover anything!

I’ll explain …

Let’s say you pay $900 premium for the warranty. They base the premium on the fact that the home has 10 appliances plus a furnace and central AC.  Now let’s fast forward a few months.

Your dishwasher breaks down! You call the warranty company.  They send a repairman who determines the problem was caused by a “preexisting condition” (in other words, the problem began before you owned the home). The result? The CLAIM IS DENIED!

Now … fast forward another 6-months … another appliance breaks down.

Same story:  “preexisting condition”!

THINK ABOUT THIS BEFORE BUYING ONE OF THESE USELESS POLICIES!

When you buy one of these warranties you never really know what will be covered until it breaks down.  That’s because the only damage covered is sudden new damage that occurs after your closing date! Let me put that another way … any previous wear, any previous owner abuse … any previous damage that may have contributed to a breakdown is NOT covered! So even though you think you are covered for 10 appliances (and pay a premium accordingly) … YOU MAY ONLY BE COVERED ON ONE OR NONE!

In essence, the warranty company is saying:  “Pay us now and we’ll let you know what is covered later.”

THIS IS JUST PLAIN WRONG!

A better way to buy a home warranty is to demand that the warranty company inspect all of the appliances at the time you buy the warranty.  Then, based on condition, either cover it or exclude it. That way, you’re paying for exact coverage instead of “pay-now find-out-later“.

    What about warranties on new homes?


  2. Denverdiablo, 3 months ago

    I bought a CHOICE Warranty that coveres most items in my old home and actually had to use it for a leaking garbage disposal. My plan had me do a claim on their website and I got a call right away spelling out that I have a $45 deductable for them to plan a plumber to come out and look it over. On 08/14/2018 the plumber arrived and looked at the unit and said that I needed a replacement Garbage Disposal and that he would call CHOICE and make a claim and that I needed to pay him the $45. He went to his truck and made the call and came back moments later saying it was covered and then repaced the unit with a new one. This was very effortless and a great program since the unit was also hard wired in and Lowes would not even touch it when we did some home improvements in the past. I will recommend CHOICE Warranty to others and we are happy with it so far.

    WARNING‼️ DO NOT BUY HOME SMART WARRANTY‼️ BAIT & SWITCH‼️ Huge disappointment. I didn’t think you’d have to worry about your electric company ripping you off. We have been paying into the so called “home warranty” since 2017. No one sent any type of pamphlet, we signed no contract…they just explained their service it over the phone.

    They kept sending different technicians out for our A/C and each one would tell use something different. They finally deemed it unfixable, but we decided to pay out of our pocket to get other estimates. We another tech back out to get a a/c quote that was ridiculous! He said our furnace also needed to be replaced which was untrue according to the other technicians that came out. In the written $14k quote it clearly shows the Home Smart warranty $750 rebate deduction. Now they’re trying to say we don’t qualify for the rebate, because we didn’t do it within 90 days, when the first tech was out. The tech or anyone else NEVER told us that we had a time limit. We were never given any paperwork. We had the 2nd quote and it was in their 90 day period. They still won’t do anything. I attempted to cancel and they say were locked into a 12 month contract. I’ll change my credit card…I’m not giving them another DIME for their rip off service, as they have no intention of reimbursing you. My husband is disabled and we shelled out 4K out of our pocket and our house is still hot. Thanks for nothing! I’ll be going to troubleshooter, Better Business Bureau, Yelp and every social media site. You’ve been warned‼️
