Notice of Receivership

On February 19, 2015, Sensible Home Warranty, LLC (“SHW”) was ordered into ancillary receivership for purposes of liquidation by the Second Judicial Circuit Court in Leon County, Florida. The Florida Department of Financial Services is the court appointed Ancillary Receiver of SHW.

Background Information

SHW is a Nevada domiciled warranty company. SHW’s primary place of business was in Brooklyn, NY. SHW apparently closed its NY offices and, as of May 2014, had a notice posted on its website that it had “shuttered its operations.” The company failed to file its 2013 Annual Statement and was ordered by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (“OIR”) to cease writing new business in Florida on March 11, 2014. As of June 1, 2014, SHW’s license to offer home warranty contracts in Florida expired.

On September 24, 2014, the Department of Insurance in Nevada issued an order setting liquidation procedures.

Available records indicate that approximately 383 Florida consumers had open policies with SHW with unrefunded premiums at the time the company “shuttered its operations.” The deadline for filing claims in the SHW Ancillary Receivership was 12:01 a.m. on August 19, 2015.

THERE IS NO GUARANTY ASSOCIATION COVERAGE FOR WARRANTY AGREEMENTS
