I'm a new user to the group and new to owning non-condo rentals.  I have two four-plexes that were built in the early 1950s and have required a fair amount of maintenance since I closed in May.  My realtor keeps encouraging me to get a home warranty through American Home Shield, but their reviews on the web are not impressive.  It sounds like the quality of their technicians is below average, and they try to find ways not to pay under the warranty (shocking).  I would be interested in hearing others' experience with AHS or any other home warranty company.

I've never had a problem with them. I use National Home Warranty but AHS is fine. They wont fix anything that is almost broken, and I had to wait 2 weeks for a space saver microwave part. Other than that they are fine.  

As far as not wanting to cover repairs, make sure you read and understand your contract thoroughly and you wont have a problem.

I agree with MrFurrly. Like any warranty contract, it's really important to make sure that you read the fine print. Based on the research I've observed, a lot of complaints are from people who thought they were getting something and didn't realize the repair wasn't included in their service contract.

Here are some frequently asked questions if you're interested in checking them out.
