This article will explain what is covered in a home warranty. We offer our buyers and sellers a home warranty by Home Trust. The warranty is usually issued at the time of purchase of a home and is usually paid by the seller. With our home trust warranty, buyers can elect to purchase additional coverage for a swimming pool, enhanced HVAC coverage, water softener, and upgrade to a supreme protection plan and pay an additional $20.00 to reduce the service fee of $75.00 per visit to $50.00. Please feel free to call me at 812-499-9234 if you would like to have additional information on our Home Trust Warranty.
What’s a Home Warranty?
A home warranty is a service contract, normally for one year, which helps protect home owners against the cost of unexpected covered repairs or replacement on their major systems and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear. Coverage is for systems and appliances in good working order at the start of the contract.
Check your home warranty policy to see which of the following items are covered. Also find out if the policy covers the full replacement cost of an item.
• Electrical systems
• Water heater
• Heating ducts
• Water pump
• Garbage disposal
• Swimming pool (may be optional)
