Frequently Asked Questions About Mississippi Home Warranties

Who can buy a home warranty in Mississippi?

Real estate agents, home sellers, first-time home buyers, and veteran homeowners can buy a home warranty. Real estate agents and home sellers may purchase a home warranty to include in the sale of a home—this could entice potential buyers to buy the home since a warranty ensures its systems and appliances will be covered.

How does a home warranty work?

Once coverage kicks in, you’ll pay a monthly or annual premium based on the coverage you select. When a covered system or appliance breaks down, you can file a claim with your home warranty provider online or over the phone.

Once your claim is processed, your company will schedule a time for a technician to come to your home to diagnose the problem and repair or replace the covered item. Before the technician leaves, you’ll have to pay the set service fee.

Is a Mississippi home warranty required?

Mississippi homeowners are not required to purchase a home warranty. However, if the home is newly constructed, the builder is required to offer a warranty under the New Home Warranty Act. For one year, the home is protected from any defect caused by the builder’s code non-compliance.


Our Home Warranty Review Methodology: How We Chose The Best Home Warranty Companies

The This Old House Reviews Team is committed to providing comprehensive and unbiased reviews to our readers. This means earning your trust through transparency and having the data to back up our ratings and recommendations. With that in mind, we spent time creating an objective rating system to score each home warranty company. Here’s what that review process looks like:

  • We call every home warranty provider, talking to sales agents and company representatives. We get quotes, ask questions, and fully understand the protection plan offerings.
  • We test the customer service, including factors such as wait times, friendliness, and problem-solving ability.
  • We analyze the sample contracts from each brand we review. This allows us to break down the industry jargon and see what is and isn’t covered so we can give readers straightforward information.
  • We update all of this information on a continuous basis, storing it in a proprietary database that allows us to compare dozens of home warranty companies against each other.

With all of that data, we created a rating system to score each home warranty company. Our rating system is a weighted, 100-point scale on the following factors:

  • Plan options (25): Every home and every family needs the right home warranty plan for them. Providers with more options and more flexibility were rated higher than those without.
  • Coverage specifics (5): What does each plan and each provider cover? The more covered by the provider in their basic plans, the higher the score.
  • Pricing (25): Both the monthly fee and the service fee play an important role in the selection process.
  • Trustworthiness (25): There are a number of home warranty companies that aren’t reputable and don’t follow through on their agreements. We gauged trustworthiness based on customer feedback from the BBB.
  • State availability (5): Where you live plays a role in the options you have for a home warranty. Companies scored higher if they covered more states than their competitors.
  • Customer service (10): This factor is based on our own research from calling providers, as well as their guarantees for responding to claims.
  • Additional benefits (5): Some home warranty companies offer special promotions or will cover items in their plans that are usually considered optional coverage for most companies. Home warranty companies that offer these types of benefits were scored higher than competitors that didn’t.

In summary, the This Old House Review Team reviewed 45 companies to select this list of the seven best home warranty providers. To keep our ratings and data current, we have a full-time researcher who collects (and regularly updates) more than 100 specific data points from each company to help us compare them on key factors such as coverage, cost, service, and dependability.
