Choice Home Warranty Prohibited From Selling Warranty and Service Contracts in Georgia

Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King announced that Choice Home Warranty is prohibited from selling or soliciting home warranty or service contracts in Georgia.

In March, a Cease-and-Desist order was issued against Choice Home Warranty for failing to meet the surety bond requirements established under Title 33 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated. The company has failed to post the required bond in an amount of not less than $100,000.00 despite previous warnings. This requirement ensures that Georgia consumers are protected in case a warrantor cannot pay out claims.
