The specific procedures to address a potential defect in your home are spelled out in your warranty book. The warranty company will need to receive written documentation from you as outlined in the Requesting Warranty Performance section of the warranty book that pertains to your home. Notice can be sent by mail to the Administrator’s address or by email to warranty.resolution@rwcwarranty.com. For convenience, you may also use our online form. We do not accept telephone or fax requests at this time. You will need to provide:

  • Validation Number and Effective Date of Warranty;
  • Your Builder’s name and address;
  • Your name, address, email address,and telephone number;
  • A reasonably specific description of the Defect(s) (including the date on which the defect was discovered);

Yes. The Limited Warranty automatically transfers to subsequent buyers throughout the warranty term. There are no fees to pay or forms to complete. Please note that in the case of a foreclosure, the warranty may be voided.
We have over 75 different warranty options. So the answer to this question depends on which warranty was issued for your home. Coverage varies depending on the program selected by your Builder and the state in which your home is located. Refer to the warranty book you received at closing for exact coverage and warranty terms.

Mediation. We know that, in the majority of cases, the root of many disputes is the lack of communication between a Builder and a Homeowner. Sometimes, all it takes to get an issue resolved is someone to take on the role of mediator and assist the others in coming to a fair and reasonable agreement, based on the warranty standards provided. Prior to heading to formal arbitration or costly litigation, RWC does its best to mediate disputes between Members and Homeowners. Mediation is an informal process involving the Builder, the Homeowner and the Warranty Company during the Builder’s term of responsibility. There is no charge to either side to this initial process. 

Arbitration. If resolution is not reached during mediation, the next step is arbitration, a formal process conducted by an independent, neutral arbitrator to resolve disputes. We use arbitrators experienced in arbitrating residential construction matters. Unless prohibited by law, the decision of the arbitrator under our programs is binding on all parties, including both you and your Builder. There is a fee for the arbitration which is paid according to the terms spelled out in your warranty document.
