After purchase of our home, we noticed a gas smell between house & garage. I found that pipe had rusted through. I turned off the gas & sent e-mail to website as instructed. Called the company after no response for 2 days. They said they did not consider it an emergency if no call. Their service man assessed the problem & called the company about the gas & water heater leak. Company responded that repairs were not covered because it was outside the perimeter of the house. Also said that I should contact the manufacturer of the water heater about leak as they did not cover it. Their service man said he would replace the rusted 10 foot gas line for $1,200. He said this was the standard cost in this area for the work. I called a local reputable business who did the work for $300. We did NOT renew our worthless contract! ..View less

The only bad things I have to say about this home warranty company is that they don't have a lot of available service people in my area and the trade call price took a hefty jump this year.

I was sold this warranty as part of the home inspection when I bought my home. I was not very happy when the home inspector would not let me be present at the inspection to start with, thought that was strange. Met the inspector when he was done and reviewed the report. He left. I went around the property looking to see what he had alluded to in his report and found termites on the back patio, very obvious tubes, inspector had made no mention of any termite findings. Called my realtor, she called LandAmerica who called the inspector. He said he stood by his report that there was no evidence of termites. And all that time I was standing by the evidence of the termites that his trained eye could not see!! I called the state board of pest control and found out there was a pre treat on the house and I was still within the warranty period. Termites treated. Problem solved. Never used the warranty and cancelled as soon as the year was up. Now a REALTOR, I will never use or recommend this company. ..View less

We have had a home warranty since we bought the house in 2006. I did not rate them higher simply because we have not made any major claims. The first claim was when we moved in - the A/C did not work. Since it was a weekend we had to wait a few days for someone to come out and fix it. Turns out out it was just a disconnected wire. Problem solved. He also did a quick check on the A/C units (one unit is newer and was replaced before we bought the house; the other unit is older and was put in with the house - he said the make sure to keep up the maintenance on it and when it goes out the warranty company will only replace it with an equal unit, I can understand that; I don't remember but I think he added some freon to the unit). The second claim was for a leaky water heater. I noticed a mildew spot on the ceiling. Tech came out quickly and repaired the leaky pipe. The third claim was for an outside outlet. The tech said the wires looked like they were cut so it was not covered - no big deal. The fourth claim was for the built-in microwave. It is the original with the house. The handle was starting to break and the motherboard or something was out.The handle was not part of the problem but they gave us the choice of reparing the unit or taking the money and putting it towards a new microwave. We chose to take the money and get a new one. It did not cover the entire cost for a new one - the only gave us enough for the part repair. We knew how much they were giving us before we accepted and we wanted a new one instead and were happy the deal. The most recent claim was for the stove. The knob to turn the stove on would not turn. We took the knob off and tried turning the metal piece with pliers. The metal piece broke off. It was the same service tech for the microwave. He came out the next day. He didn't have the part to fix it so had to order it and make sure the company was OK with repairing it. The first part was defective and had to order another one. He kept us informed the whole time and came out to repair it when the part came in. I have not had any problems with them and have been very happy with the service I have received so far. I'm not sure what will happen if we have a major repair, we will have to wait and see. ..View less

Our Dishwasher failed recently, and the company, now named Buyers Protection Group, came out diagnosed it and came out about 7 days later with a new unit, took the old one away. We are very happy! Only paid a Service, Trade fee, and saved over $700

This home warranty was sold to me at the closing of my house. Little did I know, Land America had filed for bankruptcy previous to my purchase of the warranty and as soon as I needed a repair, it was BPG (Buyers PROTECTION?? Group) that was there to 'help' (or so I thought) me. I had a LOUD banging noise on my A/C unit. I called for a service call and was told they "Don't do noises". WHAT? She asked what was wrong with it. I didn't know. She said they "Don't do discovery". WHAT? I asked what that meant. She said they won't come to figure out what's wrong with it. Well, if I was qualified enough to determine what was wrong with it, I'd be qualified enough to fix it myself. It took a call to the home inspector then lots of calls to BPG's regional manager to get someone to come over. Actually, THREE different repairmen came at 3 different times, PLUS one we called on our own. Two couldn't tell us a thing. Two others (one was the one we called on our own) told us the air handler is about 15 yrs old and the compressor is about 2 yrs old and they don't match. They said the compressor is already damaged and what really needs to be done is to replace the air handler and compressor at the same time. Reports were written and given back to BPG and you know what? They wiped their hands of it. They told us it's not their problem, they won't do anything about it, we can sue them if we want and their lawyers will be happy to speak with ours. What a company! I'd NEVER EVER use them again nor do I want their unprofessional (except for one guy) service men back in my house. Shame on them. Hmmmm....maybe I should call that show "Shame on You" or whatever it is. Everyone should know what kind of rip-off company they are. ..View less

No problem with this company unless you have a claim. I had a/c problem (York) and they agree to replace, but with a brand I had never heard of. The condensor made so much noise you could not stay outdoors. After many calls to their service techs I replaced, at my expense.

When I ask him why I never had to do that before he told me I didn't know what I was talking about. He was ask to leave my house! Next my pool pump when out. A repairman was sent out and told me he could replace the pump the next day. The warranty company decided to get another repairman to look at the problem. The second repairman could not come out for over a week. When I called the warranty company and ask them who was going to get the "green" out of my pool, they kindly informed me I would be paying for that. Well after many phone calls and heated debates the original repairman was allowed to replace the pump. This company tries to deny all claims, sends out repairmen who do not have a clue, and are just down right rude. I am changing to another company. ..View less

They cam out the next day when it was cloudy and 85 degrees and told me that it just needed some freon. I had asked a friend of mine who owns an air conditioning company to take a look at it and he told me that the 26 year old unit needed replacing since it was leaking oil and the valves were in bad shape. The Land America tech did not look at very much at all and just concluded that it needed freon. When I went to call Land America, the technicians ran off in their truck. I called Land America and they said they would get back to me but were unconcerned. This is not customer service nor is it a safe practice in Arizona to not properly evaluate an air conditioning unit that is so old. ..View less

The first year I had this warranty in 2007 all the appliances in my home were covered to a certain extent. Upon renewal the following year I paid extra to have the maximum upgrade to my policy to have more coverage. Turns out they decided to remove the coverage to my refrigerator, washer and dryer yet the premium kept going up each year. My refrigerator works, but makes a very loud humming sound. Now that I needed it repaired they tell me the refrigerator coverage was removed 2 years ago and that they would not cover just a humming sound if the frige works anyways. I went back and looked at my renewal contract and it did say those this were not covered, but how can they just remove something without indicating it in a separate correspondence and keep raising the renewal premium cost? One assumes your renewing to keep the same coverage. Not once did they indicate to me there was an additional cost to add the fridge, washer and dryer back onto the policy (another $105) plus I would need to pay for an appliance inspector to come out and verify first the appliances are in good working order and submit to them so the will accept to cover them. If those appliances were covered to begin with why do I need to prove they are working? They will not keep customers if they keep up with this kind of bad business practices. ..View less

In response to our claim Land America Home Warranty sent AZ Appliance to our home. AZ Appliance stated that they would order the needed parts and schedule the repairs to our oven. However, AZ Appliance failed to keep the scheduled appointment for repairs because Land America decided, for undetermined reasons, not to honor our home warrantee contract. I contacted Land American Home Warranty and spoke with David in the Authorization Department when it became apparent that Land America would not deliver the services promised under our warrantee. Dave was rude and accusatory during the conversation, and left me feeling that I was under cross examination for a criminal act. After months of appeals to Land America to honor my home warrantee I have been forced to conclude that I have been scammed. ..View less
