In our frequently asked questions series on Home Warranties, this was a popular question that comes up to a company representative.
“Does the home warranty company inspect homes before they giving you a warranty plan?”
No. According to a representative from Fidelity Home Warranty, “We ask that everything is in fine working order upon the close of escrow. We assume it has had a proper inspection and that everything is in fine working order. I f things were broken or needed repair that were noted on the inspection report, we expect that to be the homeowners responsibility to have that taken care of BEFORE the buyer takes possession and a home warranty contract is put into place.”
