Many landlords wonder if carrying a home warranty for a rental property is worth it. Imagine your tenant calls to let you know they have been without hot water for a day. This is an urgent matter as any landlord knows, you know you have to do something, and fast! So you scramble to contact a specialist hoping they are reliable and after they conclude their diagnostic report, they will let you know whether you need a repair, or if you need an entire system replacement for the hot water heater. Either way, you’re going to have to come out of pocket. With a Liberty Home Guard home warranty plan that cost can be reduced down to just the cost of your one time service call fee!
As a landlord, you already have a enough on your plate in your own home, so any issues your rental property may incur could be a real drag. Why add more stress worrying about finding a reliable HVAC technician or appliance repairman when covered malfunctions happen at your rental property? Even though you’re not living in the home, it’s still your responsibility and you’d be covered if you had a home warranty for your rental property.
