I’d re-read the paperwork - there’s plenty of loopholes! However, I do think AHS is the best one out there. We typically buy policies for our T/Ber’s for two reasons; it protects our interest and gets them used to handling repairs.
Kel and I bought our first policy in 1994 and became the “poster child” for their seminars. My mother, who’s a RE broker, called us up one night to let us know that AHS was using our names as folks who had received more than our share of benefits. That pendulum shifted more to their favor over the next few years and we discontinued it.
So, as you would expect, it’s a mixed bag. We had numerous items they did cover as long as we paid our deductible, but we also had items like an A/C compressor they refused to cover, due to “neglect”. It didn’t seem to matter the compressor was in the “neglected” condition the first few years they accepted our premiums. Hope that helps…
