Residential property owners are responsible for the maintenance of the buried water and sewer lines that run from the public (main) connection to the exterior of their home. When these lines break, leak or clog, the homeowner is often surprised to learn that it is not a municipal responsibility, and their insurance will not cover the cost of this expensive repair.
The new LAS endorsed Sewer and Water Line Warranty Program provides residents the opportunity for a low cost warranty program that will help repair, replace, or restore this critical infrastructure, which is often perceived as the municipality’s responsibility. As such, it helps the municipality address a ‘no win’ political issue.
As an LAS preferred service partner, Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) is willing to offer this warranty program to any Ontario municipality, large or small, with a standard rate structure for your residents. The low rates are made possible through LAS’ influence and the buying power of the Ontario municipal sector.
About the SLWC Sewer and Water Line Warranty Service
To participate in this program, all that is required is the municipality’s endorsement of the program model, which allows SLWC to effectively market the program to your residential property owners. There is, however, no cost to the municipality.
SLWC and their US parent, Utility Service Partners (USP), boast a proven history of quality relationships and proven work. In 2015, they surpassed 100,000 service line claims paid (resulting in $64 million in homeowner savings).
With the SLWC program model, all work is performed by licensed, local contractors, to ensure a timely response with adherence to any local code requirements.Highlights
