Complaint Resolution Program FAQs - For Customers

Read the following questions to understand how the Complaint Resolution Program works and how you can use it to resolve your complaints.

What is the Complaint Resolution Program (CRP)?

The Complaint Resolution Program or CRP is a platform created by HomeWarrantyReviews.com to help you as a customer to get in touch with a representative from your home warranty company directly. It can be used to resolve existing claims that have not been settled or in a situation where you are unable to get in touch with a company representative.

Further, you can also submit reviews or get quotes quickly as all your information is already saved in your profile on the CRP dashboard.

How Do I Know if my Home Warranty Service Provider Accepts Complaints through the CRP?

There are two ways to check if your home warranty company accepts complaints on our site:

On our website

  • Go to our company listing and click on ‘Filter Companies by Ratings and Coverage’ placed above the first company listed.
  • Click on the ‘Search’ option, type in your home warranty service provider’s name and select ‘Search’.
  • Click on the company’s logo, it will take you another page that gives you detailed information about your company.
  • Scroll down to the Claims and Services section. If it says ‘Yes’ for Complaint Resolution, you’re in luck and can go ahead and submit a complaint.

Through the CRP Dashboard

  • Login to the Complaint Resolution Program dashboard.
  • Select ‘All Companies’ on the side menu.
  • Look for your home warranty.
  • If the company’s information says ‘Yes’ for Complaint Resolution, your company participates in the CRP.

How Does the Complaint Resolution Program work?

  • You open a complaint.
  • A representative from the company responds to you and proposes a solution.
  • If you are happy with the solution offered, you agree to it. If not, you discuss a possible solution with the company representative.
  • If the complaint is resolved within 30 days, you close the complaint. If not, the complaint gets posted as a review on our site.

Sometimes the home warranty company may flag a review for being inaccurate or if you are no longer a customer of the company. In those cases, we send you an email notification to verify if it’s true. If we don’t receive a response within 7 days, we take down the complaint.

Who can use the CRP Dashboard?

Any homeowner can use the CRP dashboard. However, it provides the most use for homeowners who have a home warranty contract. You can submit reviews, complaints, track the status of your complaints, reach out to a representative from your home warranty company directly, get free home warranty quotes and gain access to free tools like the home maintenance calculator, mortgage calculator, and other tools that are currently being created.

How to login to the CRP?

Open the CRP Dashboard and click on ‘Sign up’ to create a new account. If you are signing up to check the status of a complaint, you need to use the same email ID with which you submitted the review. If you already have an account, you can directly log in to the CRP dashboard using your email ID and password.

Who Can Participate in the Complaint Resolution Program?

  • Customers whose home warranty company has opted to participate in the program. You can visit your company’s profile on our website to find out whether it participates in the CRP.
  • Only existing customers can take part in the CRP. If you have canceled your policy, even a few days prior to submitting the complaint, we will not be able to help you.
  • The review or complaint needs to be opened in the name of the policyholder.

What options does the navigation bar present?

The sleek navigation bar presents you with options to go to the Dashboard, Reviews, All Companies and Tools.

How to submit a review / open a complaint through the CRP dashboard?

First, you need to be clear about the difference between a review and a complaint. If you submit a review, it appears against that company on our site. But if you open a complaint, the home warranty company is notified about the complaint and is given 30 days to grant you a resolution.

  • To submit a regular review, you will need to uncheck the box that gives you the option to participate in the CRP and then click ‘Submit’.
