When your home warranty is up for renewal, you’ll usually get a call and an email explaining what you need to do next. You can order online quickly by logging into your account and choosing the plan you want for your home, but you should do some research on the home warranty plan you’re choosing before logging into your Landmark Home Warranty account and renewing.

Read the Home Warranty Policy to Learn What’s Covered, Excluded and Any Limits

Knowing what is covered in your home warranty plan is important! The best way to do this is to download the brochure for your state here. Then, you can go through each plan that’s offered and choose the coverage that fits best you and your home.

Each home warranty plan that Landmark offers includes the basic systems that make up your home, including the heating, cooling, plumbing, and electrical systems. Then, depending on what plan you choose and how much you want to pay, you can include plans that cover different appliances, such as the refrigerator, washer and dryer, oven, dishwasher, and more. 

When you’re going through the home warranty policy, you’ll want to pay attention to what is covered and what is excluded within each system and overall. You’ll find that you will know what to expect from your home warranty and you’ll know which plan will suit you best for the home you currently own.

Most home warranties cover the mechanical parts of the systems and appliances in a home, so long as they’ve failed from normal wear and tear. Exclusions are a part of any home warranty plan, and usually include things that don’t effect the mechanical working parts of the systems or appliances.

Most home warranties have limits. These might be monetary limits for how much in total the home warranty company pays out on claims, or how much a home warranty company is willing to pay out on a particular system or appliance. Reading the contract will help you to understand what is covered in your home and what is not.

Customize Your Home Warranty Plan

After reading through the number of different home warranty plans Landmark offers, you might have noticed that there are dozens of ways to customize a home warranty plan. If you have a brand-new oven and dishwasher in your home but your washer and dryer are older, you can purchase a plan that only covers the systems in your home and add on coverage for just the appliances that you need!

How Do I Get Continuous Coverage?

Continuous coverage is a huge benefit for home warranty holders through Landmark, as they never have to worry about changing their plan each year. Once they have decided on a plan, they will never have to bother with the “renewal” process again. Another added benefit of continuous coverage is that the payments are in affordable monthly increments, so homes never go without coverage on their systems and appliances. You can still change coverage every year, if you want to, but a continuous coverage plan helps you to worry about one less thing. You can sign up for continuous coverage this year on the phone or online when you renew. Just select the monthly payment option.
