How Do You Know If You Have a Home Warranty?

Have you recently purchased a new house and wondered whether it comes with a home warranty after the purchase? There are a few ways you can check:

  • Get in touch with the seller to ask about the home warranty. This method is by far the easiest. They can tell you whether they purchased one, who it’s with, and how many years or months remain on it.
  • Contact the primary home warranty companies in your area. Depending on where you live, there may only be a few home warranty providers. Calling them is an easy way to check whether they provide coverage for your property.
  • Check whether any of your existing appliances or systems have received service. Contact the provider and determine whether a home warranty company requested the initial work order.

Should I Get One If I Don’t Have One Yet?

If your home doesn’t have one yet, it’s in your best interest to get a home warranty. Unlike insurance, a home warranty covers any wear and tear damage to your appliances and systems. It’s a convenient option for reducing out-of-pocket expenses for otherwise costly repairs and replacements.
