Terrible, do not buy! The people they contract with are con artists. They stole $200 from me and still refuse to fix the problem(because it's in the walls and we can't see it). My air-conditioning pipe needs to be copper not plastic and it's leaking freon and they won't replace it. My newborn son really appreciates their con artist techs and refusal to fix a simple problem. DO NOT PURCHASE A POLICY FROM OLD REPUBLIC
Everytime we called for service, no one ever called us back. We had to keep calling them. I even submitted an online request for service and would never hear back from them. When we finally did hear from them they said a Technician would call within 24 hours. That never happened either, so I would call them again and they would tell me to call the Technician myself. What were we paying them for??? Some of the Technicians that came out were very nice and knowledgeable and some were just plain lazy and did not want to do the work so they would say they could not find anything wrong. When your Dryer does not dry your clothes...Something is wrong. A couple of times when I called in... Read More
This company is horrible!!!! They do not screen their subcontractors they do not pay fair market price therefore any service you get is substandard and if you want to hire your own real company they will not pay them even near fair market rate so why have the warranty? I am so disappointed when I thought I had coverage for my new home in time of need to find out the main thing that insurance companies do is try not to pay
We received standard coverage plan for our home that we purchased. They had no problem taking our money but when it comes to filing a claim they are horrible! Do not I repeat do not trust them! We were in our house and had a heater issue. They came out and looked at it and fixed the ignition switch, great we were going to renew when our year was up. Our kitchen disposal went out and they sent someone out and we were told that they do not cover it because it is industrial? In our home? I just wanted it fixed or replaced. Neither happened but we had to pay them 65.00. I then went out and purchased a new disposal and installed it myself! Our kitchen ice maker went out and of course that is... Read More
I started with old republic in 2006. They were excellent warranty company . However the last two years have been a drastic drop . Have the technicians sent to my house we're not even certified. I finally switched to American home Shield and I'm very happy with them .
brochure is terrible. Sales person didn't tell me truth. I didn't get a renewal notice so it lapsed. If you downgrade you can never upgrade- stuck with that policy. Cannot add an option either. You must 1st choose all options bc you can never add it in future. Go over every detail in brochure - it's confusing - very confusing to know what you are getting, what the $$$$ limit for that feature and which package it is with. I recommend 1st American Home Warranty - nice people.
Old Republic sent someone out right away to check the air conditioner when it conked out in the middle of 106 temperatures. Shortly thereafter Old Republic telephoned to say they were sending someone over to repair/replace the air conditioner unit. Shortly thereafter Old Republic called back to say they changed their mind because the air system was older and not maintained as well as Old Republic felt it should have been. Isn't that why a new home owner gets a home warranty? Is a new home owner supposed to have every appliance, pipe, and system in the home torn apart and inspected before moving in? Isn't that why I got an insurance policy? After going around and around with Old Republic... Read More
Old republic left us for 2 weeks, going on 3 without air conditioning in the middle of summer in North Carolina where it's as hot and humid.. not only was it hot but I had to leave my windows open all the time and had the risk of someone breaking in.. all they would have stopping them was a screen.
Upon moving in to a new home after purchasing, my fridge began leaking water which would rapidly pool in the bottom of the fridge. This is a textbook example of an issue that is obviously covered by my Plan with Old Republic. When I called to request service, the agent, clearly following a script that all agents are forced to follow, asked me a series of leading questions, entrapping me into saying that I noticed the leak right away upon "moving in", which qualified it as a pre-existing condition, which means they would not cover it. Old Republic claims it does not matter that the fridge was not leaking at the time of my multiple walkthroughs of the property during the escrow process... Read More
ORHP cannot find my icemaker for replacement. A huge selling point for their warranty is that, if they cannot fix your appliance, they will replace it. That promise is NOT true! I was told that my refrigerator is "working fine" even though an icemaker is a VITAL part of a "working" refrigerator. Full disclosure; I have been offered a "cash out", but I am still out an icemaker AND my $100 co-pay!
