Learn What the Best Home Warranty Is and How To Claim Yours

A home warranty plan covers all the needed repairs and replacements in your home. In most cases, home warranties last for one year.

There are many home warranty companies in America, but how will you find the best one? We can help you find the best home warranty company, and when the time comes, DoNotPay will help you file a warranty claim.

How Does a Home Warranty Work?

When an appliance or a home system stops working, you call the company to claim your warranty. The official method for filing a warranty claim depends on the company. Once you file the warranty claim, the company schedules a maintenance appointment with a technician who comes to your house and fixes the problem.

The home warranty company pays if your appliance needs a replacement. The customers usually pay a small fee for the repairman's visit.

Sometimes, companies might reject your first claim, leaving you the option to file an appeal.
