Frequently Asked Questions

An American Home Shield® Real Estate Home Warranty is a one-year service agreement that covers the repair or replacement of many major home system components and appliances. It is available to sellers and buyers typically via their real estate agent. We also offer home warranty plans for customers who are not in a real estate transaction. See our Plans & Coverage page for more information.

Your coverage starts the day of closing, however, if payment for the home warranty funds has not been received from the home closing process, the number of service requests may be limited.
Our new construction plan provides coverage from years 2-5 for a total of four years of home warranty protection. It can also be purchased anytime within the first year of closing on new construction.
