Coverage - 10 / 10

Landmark’s coverage varies by state. Furthermore, there are two plan categories depending on the customer's situation. The Homeowner Plan is for those who have already owned their house for 30 days. The Real Estate Plan is for new home purchase. The following details regarding coverage and pricing will be examples of the Homeowner Plan. For details on plans associated with new home purchase, which are more comprehensive and varied, we suggest you visit Landmark's website and see what they will provide that is specific to the state you live.

Landmark's Homeowner coverage is divided into two different plans, the Home Systems Plan, and the Total Protection Plan. The Systems covers services like A/C and Heating Pre-Season Tune-up and pest control, comprehensive AC and heater coverage, electrical systems, and plumbing.

Contract & Price - 6 / 10

Like the service fee, Landmark's yearly premium for its Homeowner Plans vary by state. In Utah, Oregon, and Idaho, choosing the $100 service fee will produce a $350 premium for the Home System Plan, and a $600 premium for the Total Protection Plan. If you were to opt for the $60 service fee, this would increase the Home System Plan premium to $400, and the Total Protection Plan to $650. In Texas, Nevada, and Arizona, the $100 service fee will yield a $360 premium for the Home Systems Plan, and a $610 premium for the Total Protection Plan. Finally, in these states, choosing the $70 service fee will cost $425 for the Home Systems Plan and $675 for Total Protection.

We have had several occasions in the past two years to avail ourselves of Landmark, and we have never been disappointed. With the horror stories we've read of other people's dealings with home warranties, we're thrilled our interactions with Landmark have been nothing but positive.

I had a major plumbing problem, and the staff, Ruby, in the office was very helpful, friendly and went out of her way to get someone out as soon as possible. It took two trips, but the plumbers were also friendly and fixed the problem. Landmark keep me aware of where the plumbers were and exactly when they would be at my house. I’m so happy that I have Landmark Home Warantee.

I have been very pleased with Landmark Home Warranty. I even signed up for a 2nd year! The people in the office are so nice when I call. The Pros they have sent out so far have exceeded any expectations! The re-key Pro I had came out without me having to be at home, even replacing a broken doorknob! And it looks great. The Heating Pro was so awesome. I missed my first appointment with him and he just arranged to come out the next day. He wasn't even upset about it! Showed me how to change the furnace filter, how to use a new thermostat and even turned up the heat on my water heater! Was even nice to my cats. Being a single lady homeowner, having peace of mind and someone to call when I... Read More

I was reluctant at first to pay for a home warranty. But every year it is worth the monthly cost! Not only haveI saved hundreds of dollars, but I rest easy knowing Landmark has my back.

My water heater rusted and was leaking out the bottom. They were very fast with emailing me the details of who my contractor would be to do repairs. And stayed on top of it the whole process by phone or emails. Grateful for Landmark Home Warranty!

They were good a few years ago, but they raised the service call without notification and when you ask for service it takes days to get it, even with emergencies. The folks on the phone are not helpful (sounded like they were 14 years old!) and had no idea what an "leaking water and causing lots of damage" meant in terms of emergent service. After having them for years, I am canceling. I have paid 60$ for service calls and to suddenly get charged 100$ because I have paid for the premium contract, does not seem fair and they should have notified me of the increase. Additionally, the contractors they get are not the best.

Cynthia, I can see how you would be frustrated with the increase in cost. Our service fees changed when we updated the contract. In terms of asking questions, that is what we ask our representatives to do. We want to be able to make sure that in these types of situations there is no way for us to solve the ongoing damage problem before additional is caused. I am sorry that you were not satisfied with the level of service. Landmark strives to assist our homeowners in the best way possible. Thank you, Candace Parke cparke@landmarkhw.com Customer Relations Manager

Pool filter tank cracked and a replacement is not available any longer. Landmark decided to only pay for the bottom half and leave me with a pool that won't work and get me back running unless I buy the top half. Absolutely ridiculous. Get my equipment running as that's why I bought the warranty plus enhanced to cover this type of stuff.

If I could do a zero rating I would. Landmark claim manager James Hair was extremely unhelpful and unwilling to help with a serious issue that came up yesterday after having my furnace serviced. The contractor that Landmark sent out to my house was fine and friendly however an hour or two after making his repair of the furnace we returned home to find that the entire home smelled of gas making it uninhabitable. I quickly called Landmark to see what they could do to remedy the situation and was told by James that he would try to get in touch with the contractor. This was at about 6 PM. From looking at the contractors website they should have been open another hour and Landmark Claim... Read More

After discovering the water heater wasn't working and contacting Landmark, I quickly received an email from them telling me they had contacted a plumber who would be contacting us within a few hours. This was after business hours though. We didn't hear from the plumbing company that evening but they did call around 10 the following morning after I left a voice mail. The company gave me a 3 hour window in which they would be there that same day. I received a call from the plumber when he was heading to the house, as I had requested. The contractor came to the house during the expected window of time that afternoon, fixed the water heater quickly & was both professional and nice.... Read More
