A Old Republic Home Protection warranty fills in the gap of homeowners insurance by providing coverage for appliances and other home repairs not covered in a standard homeowners policy, notes the company's website. These plans are bought one year at a time and are available to homeowners and resellers.
These plans can be carried at any point in the home ownership, including the escrow and listing periods. This helps keep unforeseen issues from delaying the sale of a home. The coverage is intended to cover appliances and major systems like the heat and air conditioning systems. The company offers a list of reputable repair services in the customers given area. This saves the homeowner a lot of time and effort trying to sort out who is the best to call or getting referrals.
Each area has different rates and coverage available. Homeowners interested in getting coverage through Old Republic Home Protection can look at the plans and options through a PDF, as noted on the company's site. Customers can also call to talk to a customer service representative for more information. Customers needing to file a claim can call the 24-hour customer service line or request service online. Since the plan is only for one year, customers get renewal offers every year that allow them to keep their service uninterrupted.
