What is a Home Warranty?

Let’s start with understanding what a home warranty is.

A home warranty is designed to protect home appliances and systems within a home against unexpected breakdowns. When protected by a home warranty, the cost of replacing or repairing unexpected damage can be dramatically reduced, saving time, money, and stress.

Additionally, some home warranty plans offer premium coverage options like pool and spa, giving homeowners and landlords extra protection  against unexpected, covered damage.

Can You Have a Home Warranty Plan on a Rental Property?

Short answer: yes! Whether you own your home and reside there yourself or you’re renting it out, you’ll still get the same, high-quality, reliable coverage on your most-used appliances, systems, and extras.

Having a home warranty plan in place is a great way to assure future renters that unexpected breakdowns will be taken care of efficiently. Rental properties typically don’t come with the most up-to-date appliances, so having a protection plan in place to protect any covered appliances is a great incentive for renters to choose your property.
