LifeTime Home Warranty offers customizable home warranty plans to real estate professionals and homeowners throughout the United States.
The company's plans offer competitive coverage for systems and appliances, though you choose from two options.
You'll also benefit from a 30-day guarantee on labor performed by a service contractor and a 90-day guarantee on parts. This guarantee helps ensure that repairs are done well and that your systems function.
Compared to industry norms, LifeTime Home Warranty has a more favorable cancellation policy for members who cancel after 30 days.
More customer reviews would offer a better sense of the customer experience with claims, coverage, and customer service. However, LifeTime Home Warranty is worth considering.
LifeTime Home Warranty offers two customizable plans to real estate professionals and homeowners.
Estimates on contract fee costs are not generally available online. However, you can provide personal information to request a quote online. The service fee is $75.
The Basic Plan covers plumbing stoppage, water heater, Whirlpool bathtub, oven, range, stove, cooktop, sump pump, built-in microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, trash compactor, ductwork, garage door opener, and ceiling exhaust fans. It also covers the plumbing and electrical systems.
Some home warranty companies offer plans that only cover appliances or home systems, so LifeTime's Basic Plan offers a nice mix.
With the Total Plan, you'll have the same coverage as the Basic Plan and coverage for the air conditioning system, heating system (two units), refrigerator, clothes washer, and a clothes dryer.
You can customize your home warranty plan with the following coverage options:
LifeTime Home Warranty offers a 30-day guarantee on labor and a 90-day guarantee on parts. With these guarantees, you can make another claim without paying a service visit fee if the first repair fails within the guarantee's timeline.
You can cancel your contract within the first 30 days for a full refund of the contract fee minus any service costs incurred by LifeTime Home Warranty. This policy is standard for the industry.
After 30 days, you can cancel if LifeTime Home Warranty agrees. In this case, you'll receive a prorated refund of the contract fee minus a $100 administrative fee and any service costs paid by the company. If service costs are higher than the remaining contract fee, you'll receive no refund.
Although the administrative fee is fairly high for the industry, LifeTime Home Warranty stands out because it will not make clients pay the difference between remaining contract fees and incurred service costs.
If you're on a monthly payment plan and cancel after the first 30 days, you may be billed for the remaining contract fee in the circumstances outlined above.
Cancellation must be submitted in writing.
Best Company has not received many customer reviews for LifeTime Home Warranty. Insight on the customer experience is limited.
Although LifeTime Home Warranty offers competitive coverage, it offers fewer plan options compared to some competitors.
As standard for the industry, LifeTime Home Warranty only covers damage from normal wear and tear for specified appliances and systems. Since some parts of appliances and systems may not be covered, review your contract for specifics.
The home warranty company also does not take responsibility for negligence of the contractor performing the work. LifeTime Home Warranty will also not reimburse unauthorized work.
