I am not sure why everyone is giving Old Republic Home Warranty such bad reviews. I have been using them for 8 years now and could not be more pleased with the service they provide. The contractors have been great as well.

DO NOT USE ONE REPUBLIC HOME WARRANTY!!! They are a complete scam!! We recently purchased a home in Los Angeles and purchased the top plan with One Republic which was to cover everything and replacement if needed. A few months into owning the home our cooktop stopped working. We filed a claim and they sent out a repair technician. We waited all day for the repair guy to show up and he finally came at the end of his 6 or 8 hour window. He was unable to repair the cooktop and said he needed to look for a part otherwise it would be replaced. We paid him $65 (FOR NOTHING) and he said he would be in touch in the next couple of days. A week went by with no call and we began calling One Republic. They still had not found a part and said it would be a couple of weeks before they would replace the appliance. It has now been 4-5 weeks! and we have had to call weekly for updates. We called the repair company directly and everything that One Republic was telling us was untrue and they were not sure the part would even fix the problem. The company told us the part they were looking for may not even fix the problem and they would have to try it and see if another part would be needed. We have had a broken cooktop for over a month! We have tried to contact a supervisor and the only person they would put us in contact with was "Art". He was not helpful and rude. He said we had to keep waiting or he would give us a credit of less than half the price to replace the appliance if we forfeit our warranty. We paid for the top plan to avoid this Bullshit yet they are still giving us the run around. He said if we accepted the credit we would lose all rights to our plan. One REPUBLIC Home WARRANTY is a SCAM. DO NOT USE THEM. ART WAS RUDE and we want to talk to HIS BOSS!!! It is so great dealing with all of this with the Holidays around the corner. DO NOT USE ONE REPUBLIC!!!!!!

We have lived here 1 year. In that time we had a Partial reimbursement for a HVAC motor that burned out but when our stove quit, our disposal and later our dishwasher leaked all over and then a garage door spring broke (over the period of a year) There was always some detail why the claim could not/would not be paid. Each of these was an unplanned emergency but ORHW wanted $60+ each time to "send someone out" to determine if ORHW would cover it. In each case it was a week or two before "someone" could come out. With water all over and/or our car stuck in the garage I would have expected better service. Basically, you have to call them BEFORE any emergency. None of these claims were paid. Look elsewhere for insurance.

I am giving them a ZERO rating. Worst home warranty company out there. For over 3 months we have tried to get them to send a contractor to diagnose and fix our HVAC unit. After three months all they did was replace our thermostat with a cheap one. And guess what, the unit does not work!!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY.

Old Republic covers a house we purchased within the last year. On Labor Day our pressure assist pump died leaving us with barely enough pressure to minimally function. We got ahold of a plumber who actually did come and replace the pump. Old Republic seems to think we were supposed to get "prior authorization" when you have no water pressure on a holiday. It seems far more "scam" than insurance to me. I know the people we purchased our home from paid something like $350 for this "policy" which, when you get into the details, is pretty much worthless.
