Dear Angie: What are the differences between a home warranty on a new home and one for an existing home? – Kenneth E., Fort Mohave, Arizona
If you need home warranty advice, review these tips to understand how they work. Start with a reputable company and understand the contract.
A home warranty is a good marketing tool for a home seller. Before you offer one to a potential homebuyer, make sure you do your research on the company.
First, call your insurance company and tell them you do not want any proceeds paid to the contractor under your policy as you are not going with them. This way they can not collect money on your behalf. Insurance will typically have you sign a form for release of funds anyway but this is a good extra step to make sure your signature isn't forged. Second, call the contractor and tell them you will not be needing their services afterall. Did your husband pay a deposit? If so it may be non-refundable. Then follow up with a certified letter.
An email as well doesn't hurt but some states don't yet recognize email as a form of communication for legally binding documentation. This may have changed and I'm sure more states do recognize them as I haven't followed that topic elsewhere as much as I used to. The contractor's office should be local. A sure fire way to ensure they got the message is to deliver the letter to the office of the contractor and have someone at the office sign a duplicate stating it has been recieved and read. There's no arguing whether they received it or not by doing that.
Hopefully you've learned your lesson about high pressure sales techniques and storm chasers looking for a quick buck. Some people find out a much harder way. While these guys may be legitimate you should always do your homework on a contractor before signing the contract. Unless you have water running out of the house and the work has to be done on the spot it's not so much of an emergency that it can't wait until the next day.

Home Warranty reviews in Las Vegas
But wait! They refuse to end my contract because I’ve written a negative review of them on line. YES those words were
actually spoken to me. All in all this company was very disappointing and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
Unfortunately, when you look for home warranty company information on the web, there is a lot of misleading information out there. I have found it difficult to find actual consumer opinions except for here on Angie’s. There seems to be a lot of false testimonials steering you to buy this home warranty plan or that home warranty product. Do we really believe that ALL the reviews are 5 star? Really? After my experience with this company, I'm thinking maybe No Home Warranty is the best home warranty! I'd rather choose myself who I let into my house and not have another person decide if I'm going to get a repair or not, I can decide that for myself.
I initially chose
My refrigerator didn't seem to be cooling well, so having a home warranty, I took the opportunity to utilize that service. Upon making the service request I was informed that because my refrigerator was a Samsung they could not directly provide for a technician, instead I should arrange for the repairs, call for a pre-authorization, and submit a receipt. So I started that process.
The tech arrived on-time, and made an initial diagnosis of 'ice buildup' with a prescription to unplug and thaw the refrigerator for 2 days - which I subsequently did. I submitted the trip charge to CAP, and they promptly paid it.
Unfortunately the diagnosis was incorrect, the refrigerator did not improve, and so I scheduled another appointment.
A different technician then diagnosed the issue as low air flow, and prescribed to replace the refrigerator fan + housing, and the main PCB computer board, at a significant cost of $670 - an expensive repair by any standard. The fan + housing, a single part, was approximately $450 including labor, while the PCB represented the remaining portion.
Consider that the full price of one year of (kitchen only) warranty service costs $372, and if your appliance repair costs reach some certain threshold they will offer to pay out $400 to avoid paying more. That would seem to mean that the benefit provided is $28 assuming only one appliance needs repair and so forth.
After some negotiation
In the end the repairs were completed, and
If your refrigerator has value comparable to $400 then
I had read the contract carefully prior to signing up, and had mistakenly assumed that an appliance that was not repairable, or not economic to repair by their standard must mean an appliance that was just worn out and not practical to repair. In practice that seems to not be the case. I remind you that the fan with housing cost was approximately $450, and perhaps
I cancelled my service plan at both my rental, and my residence, and chose
