Frequently Asked Questions

When does the 18 month term begin?  

The warranty term will begin once the warranty has been paid for, this usually ocurrs at closing.

What happens after I order the warranty?  

You will receive an email confirmation within 24-48 hours with the invoice included. If we see that additional information is needed to process the warranty, we will give you a call.

Can I pay for the warranty directly?

Yes, just choose “person ordering warranty-payment not at closing” on the order form and we will call you for payment.

Can the warranty be paid for at closing?  

Yes, once the warranty is ordered, you will get a confirmation email with the warranty invoice. This can also be sent to the closing attorney so that the warranty amount can be added to the closing documents. On the order form, you will need to note whose funds should be deducted from at closing as per the signed contract.

How do I get listing coverage including the HVAC?  

If Coastline completed the inspection, simply order the warranty and the seller will have listing coverage until closing. At closing, the warranty can be paid for and the buyer's 18 month term will begin.

Can I buy the warranty if Coastline did not do the home inspection?  

Yes, but it will be for 12 months. The 6 free additional months are only available if Coastline completes the home inspection. Even at a 12 month term, this warranty is the best on the market today.

You can choose the $75 or $150 service call fee level. There is a deductible buy down option which reduces the service fee by 50% to $75 for the all service fees for the life of the policy. It's a one-time fee of only $75.

What company provides this home warranty?  

The warranty is backed by Residential Home Protection of California, a national home warranty company. Coastline has an affiliation with Residential Home Protection of California and we work directly with their owner to ensure the best service for our clients.

What does the no "pre-existing conditions clause" mean?

Will I get a hard copy of the warranty package?  

Yes, the warranty package will be mailed to the address of the covered property.

Can I choose my own contractor for warranty claim repairs?  

Yes, you can choose to use your own contractor or an "in network" contractor. Please make sure you notify us of the claim and give us a chance to review the estimate prior to any work being completed.

The Premium Option adds coverage for items that no other home warranty will cover. This option includes $2500 of mold growth coverage, $1200 of radon remediation coverage (if a radon test was completed and was below 4.0 pCi/L), and increases the coverage level of the underground sewer and water pipes to $6000 ($4000 of coverage is included in the base warranty). This option is only $200 to the initial cost of the warranty.

Pool coverage can be added for $175. This option covers the mechanical components of in-ground pools and spas.

Septic tank pumping can be added for $35. This option covers one septic tank pumping in case of failure due to a full septic tank.
