home warranty of america class action lawsuit

Just to get a few small leaks repairs has taken over two months and one of them is still not fixed. Their contractor was definitely sketchy. AHS had us find our own contractor to diagnose the other, unfixed leak and said to have the contractor call in. Problem is of course the call wait times are over 30 minutes and the contractor wasn't going to wait on hold that long. I waited and AHS refused to discuss policy coverage on the repair since I wasn't the contractor. AHS refuses to make outbound calls to customers or contractors except if you request a supervisor, then you get a call back within 24 hours with more platitudes, but no actual resolution. Really disappointing. I am buying a 100 year old home with a 50 year old furnace that, while still chugging away, I've researched to find it is incredibly difficult and expensive to get parts for. It will likely need to be replaced within a few years and would certainly save on home heating costs to replace it sooner rather than later. I was going to rely on a home warranty to help with this, but after reading a bunch of articles online, I found this one on Angie's list, which saved the day AGAIN. Discovering that home warranties don't cover replacement costs may change whether I actually buy this house.

For example, now that you spent the $500 and the septic was replaced, your hot water heater has begun to leak.
