Hi Rob,

You will need to read the fine print in your policy to understand the limitations, as each policy is different. Home warranties are regulated at the state level, so any limitations may depend on your state. You can find an overview of legal rights by using our State by State Help directory and selecting your home state. You can also find links to the department of insurance in your state, who can provide more detailed information on what rights you’re entitled to, and can also help you if you want to file a complaint.

The Service Contract Industry Council (SCIC) is a third-party trade organization that works with government bodies to develop fair regulations for service contract companies. Consumers can check the SCIC’s database to confirm which companies are members.

The most prominent organizations are the SCIC and the National Home Service Contract Association (NHSCA). The NHSCA is a nonprofit organization that promotes sound business practices and provides resources for consumers interested in learning about the home service contract industry.

We have some information on warranties on our website: Home Warranties: Thanks and no thanks.

Hope that helps.
