Buying a new home is an expensive and stressful process and often in those first few months after you move in, money is really tight, especially after moving expenses, legal fees, decor items, etc. This is also the time when the unexpected usually happens. You move in thinking everything is working fine, only to have the furnace conk out a month later. A certified home inspector from LBR will mitigate your risk by doing a thorough visual inspection of your home and, as a courtesy, will inspect any fixed appliances and those included in the offer, such as fridges and stoves. Even with all these precautions, it’s still possible to have the unexpected happen—and that’s where the 90-day warranty comes in. A 90-day warranty purchased in conjunction with an LBR home inspection will provide you with complete peace of mind knowing that you will not be faced with unexpected repairs on closing.
The 90-day warranty comes with an LBR home inspection for a small additional charge. It’s valid for 90 days from the date of inspection (or 60 days after possession—whichever is longer), so you’re protected from the unexpected.
It covers so much too – all the parts and labor to repair any items in good working order when inspected. There’s no deductible and it may work in conjunction with an existing warranty as well.
Best of all is the peace of mind knowing that you are protected from those unexpected surprises that always seem to happen at the worst possible time. What a relief to have LBR on your team through your home buying experience and the protection and peace of mind brought by the 90-day warranty. All of this for $495 including taxes.
