Guest Units

Guest Unit warranty coverage

Guest units are a practical and convenient addition to your home, but they add additional maintenance. Having the right coverage can make it a lot easier to keep things up and running. That's where we come in. When you add Guest Unit coverage to your home warranty plan you can simply place a service request online or call American Home Shield

AHS covers guest houses and rental units under 750 square feet. If your guest house or rental unit is larger than that, you will need to purchase additional home warranty coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, our members can extend their coverage to guest units that are 750 square feet or less. Should you choose to add coverage for your guest unit, it provides the same coverage as the home warranty plan you selected for your main home. 

Guest unit coverage runs concurrently with your annual home warranty plan, so when your home warranty plan expires, the guest unit coverage does too.

You can add guest unit coverage for 750 square feet or less when you purchase your home warranty plan, within the first 60 days of membership, or when you renew your plan.

You can place your first service request once your coverage begins on the day of closing. Service requests can easily be placed 24/7 online via MyAccount or by calling 1-888-691-2854 during standard business hours to request service.

It's an annual home warranty plan that helps with the cost and hassle when parts of your home systems and appliances break down. Our real estate-specific plans are offered to both home buyers and sellers and coverage begins immediately. You will also get protection for things other home warranties might not cover, like old home systems and appliances, insufficient maintenance, improper installations or repairs, mismatched HVAC systems in certain circumstances, and more.
