MHWC was formed in 1989 by its sister organization, Residential Warranty Company, LLC, to provide written & insured manufactured home warranties to HUD-Code Manufacturers and Builder/Dealers across the country. Due to advancements in technology and to the increasing demand for affordable homes, the manufactured housing industry has experienced continued growth. More and more buyers are choosing manufactured homes. MHWC steps up to the plate and offers a variety of both standard coverage warranties as well as structural only plans so Members have access to warranty products that fit their business model.
MHWC provides an additional reason for homeowners to purchase manufactured homes. The MHWC 10 year warranty provides written insured coverage in lieu of the implied warranty recognized by most states. The benefits of MHWC continue long after the sale. As long as the home remains on the original site, warranty coverage is automatically transferred to subsequent owners — an extra plus for your sales team.
Offering written, insured, ten-year warranties designed specifically for the manufactured housing industry, MHWC warranties clearly identify the covered items, limitations and exclusions. The MHWC program includes procedures for resolving warranty issues — a benefit for the Builder/Dealer as well as homeowners. This procedure can reduce costly litigation. MHWC warranties are also insured by the same insurer that backs the RWC warranties, one ranked “A- (Excellent)” by A.M. Best since 2001.

The third component in Key Estates Warranty is a Structural Home Inspection done by a professionally licensed engineer. Together, these 3 components make Key Estates Warranty excellent coverage for any prospective homebuyer.
