In addition to the BBB Educational and General Comments below, here is important information you need to know about the company products:

* Problems that existed prior to the purchase of the home ARE NOT covered under most warranties. This is called a pre-existing condition.

* You MUST ALWAYS contact the warranty company first and receive authorization prior to having repairs completed. The company WILL NOT pay for any repairs performed without its prior approval.

* The company contracts with independent service providers in each locale of their service area and they grade their contractor's performance criteria along with time of response to the incident.

* Resale warranties ARE NOT contracts of insurance. They are limited home service agreements intended to cover breakdowns of specific items due to normal wear and tear.

* Resale warranties DO NOT relieve the home buyer from performing normal maintenance and minor repairs after they buy the home.

BBB continues to meet with the company to determine if the number of complaints are unusual in relation to the size of the company and its frequency of transactions and claim incidents.
