Important coverage information
Benefit Details: Coverage provides as many service calls as you need for covered repairs to repair or replace a leaking or permanently blocked sewer line, for which you have sole responsibility, that takes wastewater away from the external wall of your home up to your property boundary, or septic line that takes wastewater away from the external wall of your home up to the point of connection to the septic tank on your property, that is damaged due to normal wear and tear, not accident or negligence.
Not covered: Septic tanks; leaching fields; pumps or grinders; any non-conforming drain line, such as basement or storm drain; and damage from accidents, negligence or otherwise caused by you, others or unusual circumstances. Additional exclusions apply.
Making a Service Call: Your plan starts the day your form is processed, and there is an initial 30-day waiting period before you can make a service call, giving you 11 months of coverage during the first year. Upon renewal/reactivation (if applicable), you will not be subject to a waiting period.
Cancellation: You may cancel within 30 days of your start date for a full refund (or less any claims paid if cancelled at any time after renewal, where applicable). Cancellations after the first 30 days will be effective at the end of the then-current billing month, and you will be entitled to a pro-rata refund less any claims paid (where applicable). Most basic homeowners insurance policies do not cover repair or replacement of this line. If you find you have similar coverage, you can contact HomeServe to cancel and you will receive a refund of your service agreement fee less any claims paid (where applicable). Regardless of the payment frequency you select, your service agreement will be automatically renewed annually on the same payment terms you selected at the then-current renewal. HomeServe is an independent company, separate from your utilities company, providing emergency home repair services and protection solutions to homeowners across the U.S.
