When can I make a service call?

What are the terms and guarantees of my agreement?
Each repair plan is annual. Unless you cancel, your plan automatically renews annually at the then-current renewal price and is billed monthly through your utility bill. If you decide in the first 30 days that your plan is not for you, you can cancel for a complete refund. All covered repairs are guaranteed for one full year against defects in materials and workmanship.
What is the cancellation policy?
Cancel any time by calling HomeServe at 1-833-808-6705. If you cancel within 30 days of your start date, you will get a full refund (less claims paid, where applicable). Cancellations after the first 30 days will be effective at the end of the then-current billing month, and you will get a pro-rata refund, less claims paid, where applicable.
