What is the HMS Home Warranty?

The HMS Home Warranty provides repair or replacement coverage for mechanical failures of major systems and appliances in a home — situations that are typically not covered by homeowner’s insurance policy.

How will offering the HMS Home Warranty benefit real estate professionals like me?

  • With an HMS Home Warranty, you can avoid a delayed closing due to unexpected, costly repairs or replacement of your clients’ appliances and systems, as well as provide coverage after the sale of the home.
  • Your clients will appreciate the protection and peace of mind from the valuable service you are recommending.
  • When a covered appliance or system fails, your clients will contact HMS.
  • HMS informs you when clients place claims, presenting you another opportunity to keep in touch with your client.
  • When your clients are satisfied, you gain repeat business and referrals.
  • Your clients will enjoy exclusive benefits like our Claim-No Claim Warranty®*, 180 days workmanship guarantee, locksmith services, Appliance Buyline discounts and more.

*Not available in all states. See terms, conditions and limitations of the contract.

Presenting the HMS Home Warranty to Your Seller

Step 1

Print a copy of the seller flyer and enclose it with the HMS Home Warranty Brochure in the listing presentation packet. If your listing presentation is electronic, download a PDF copy of the HMS brochure from Marketopia, along with a PDF of the seller flyer.

Step 2

Review the flyer benefits with the seller and leave a copy of the brochure for the seller to review the terms and conditions. There are print and electronic tools available in Marketopia to assist in having a discussion about the HMS Home Warranty with your potential client.

Step 3

If a seller lists with you and wants the HMS Home Warranty, enroll a seller warranty online, print the warranty invoice and place in the property case folder. Within 7-10 business days, the seller will receive a welcome book.

Step 4

Be sure to put an HMS Home Warranty rider sign on the post. In the MLS listing, please make sure you note that the property comes with a home warranty. When you have an open house, make sure you use tent cards and the open house materials in Marketopia.

Step 5

When you have a contract for sale and are going to settlement, make sure the settlement agent has a copy of the HMS Home Warranty invoice to submit with payment and make sure the home warranty is listed on the HUD1. Bring a brochure for the new buyer and mail payment to HMS.

Once payment is received, the buyer will receive a welcome book within 7-10 business days.

Presenting the HMS Home Warranty to Your Buyer

Step 1

Print a copy of the buyer flyer and put with the HMS Home Warranty brochure. Review the flyer and brochure at your first meeting. Explain that any home they like can be covered by an HMS Home Warranty for as long as they own the home.*

Step 2

Revisit the warranty at contract execution and ask the seller to provide an HMS Home Warranty for your buyer. Write the warranty into the contract. Enroll a buyer warranty online, print the warranty invoice and place in the property case folder. Make sure your buyer receives a warranty brochure, which outlines the terms and conditions.

Step 4

When you have a contract for sale and you are going to settlement, make sure the settlement agent has a copy of the HMS Home Warranty invoice to submit with payment. Review the HUD1 statement to ensure the HMS Home Warranty is listed and bring a brochure for the new buyer. Make sure payment is mailed to HMS.

Once payment is received by HMS, the buyer will receive a welcome book within 7-10 business days.

If the seller is not providing the HMS Home Warranty for the buyer, at settlement the buyer can purchase the warranty for the home. Make sure that the HMS Home Warranty is on the HUD1 to ensure it is funded. Once funded, mail payment to HMS. Upon receipt of payment, the buyer will receive a welcome book within 7-10 business days.

*Subject to underwriting criteria.

For over 30 years, HMS has helped home buyers and sellers when they are faced with the mechanical failure of a home system or appliance. Each time HMS pays a claim for your client, you will receive notification so you can follow up with your current and past clients.

Learn how easy it is for your clients to file a claim with HMS and receive service from one of our 40,000 pre-screened contractors.

Here is a description of the claims process. Click thru the icons to learn more about how it works:

Have your client call or submit a claim online.

When a covered system or appliance breaks down, have your client call HMS or place a claim online. Make sure they have their contract number or know the property address. We will want to know the details of the equipment, such as the make and model of the item, the symptoms of the problem (doesn't work, not cooling, no hot water, etc.) and where in the home the item is located.

Schedule a service appointment.

You will be assigned a qualified service partner to handle your service request. You must contact our service partner and schedule a time that is convenient for you to have the failure diagnosed. Make sure you provide us with your email address so we can send an email confirmation that includes the name and contact information of the assigned service partner.

Service partner will diagnose failure.

Our service partner will contact us with the technical diagnosis so we can determine coverage eligibility and course of action.

Pay your deductible/service fee.

When the service partner arrives at your home, they will collect the deductible as defined in your contract. This fee is paid per service trade (plumber, electrician, HVAC, appliance) – not per visit or per contractor. For example, if your dishwasher needs repairing but the service partner needs to order parts and finish the repair at another time, you will only pay the deductible once. However, your repair or replacement may involve additional costs. For example, if certain conditions or components of the equipment to be repaired are not covered by your contract, these will be charged to you directly.

Describe the problem.

After you pay the deductible, the service partner will determine if the equipment should be repaired or replaced. If it is determined that it cannot be repaired, the service partner will call HMS to obtain authorization for replacement.

Equipment will be repaired or replaced.

If part(s) or a system needs to be ordered to complete the repair or replacement of the covered item, the service partner will schedule a follow-up appointment to repair or replace the item.

Give us your feedback.

After your service experience, HMS will send you a survey asking you to rate the service partner who completed your repair, as well as the customer care representative you spoke to at our call center (if applicable). We want you to be satisfied with the service you receive, and we use your feedback to continually improve our service partners and customer care representatives.
