My Home Inspector assured me that everything not listed in his report would be covered by the home warranty. Old Republic denies this. I called and explained that I had a calcified valve that was not on the inspection report and that I did not know when it stopped working. ORHP sent out a plumber to investigate rather than simply tell me that their policy does not cover calcified valves (which they told me today). Now they want $60 bucks for sending a plumber out to my house to say that a hole would have to be made in my siding for him to replace the valve and that my policy would cover the valve but not the hole. He then went back and told ORHP that my valve was a pre-existing condition.
He was wrong on two counts: I fixed the valve myself without blowing any holes in any walls, and ORHP would not pay for it.
I feel duped into buying a worthless policy and I further feel duped into spending even more on this plumber. I am refusing to pay the $60 for the plumber's visit on the grounds that they should have told me up front that calcified valves were not covered and that the plumber was wrong on both practical and logistical matters.
I wasted $800 on a home inspection and a home warranty.
