New York Partnerships
New York, New York! It’s the Big Apple, it’s wine country, it’s something for everyone! But it shares one thing with every other state… aging infrastructure that can lead to unforeseen damages to service lines for residents. That’s why so many communities throughout New York have turned to HomeServe programs to help their residents in their times of need.
Most homeowners don’t realize they are responsible for the water and sewer lines from the street to their meter, and are shocked to find they must pay to repair damage caused by age, tree roots, and other issues. Planning ahead and having a warranty program in place to cover these costs can make all the difference when an unexpected emergency occurs.
In fact, in New York we have:
- 9 Municipal and Water Utility Partners;
- Over 100,000 Active Water-Related Protection Plans;
- A Partnership with the New York Rural Water Association;
- Saved homeowners in your state over $16 million in water-related costs since 2017.
Nationally, we have saved customers over $1.1 billion over the past three years.

Which is why we are committed to putting people at the heart of everything we do, and that includes our corporate social responsibility. We actively support and care for People, Veterans, the Common Good and Communities, both locally and nationwide with the HomeServe Cares Foundation.

“Since 2015, Onondaga County Water Authority has partnered with HomeServe to offer service line repair plans to our residential customers. We selected HomeServe after a thorough selection process and we have been very happy with their service to our customers and their attentiveness to our needs. Prior to partnering, the issue of private service line responsibility had been a source of confusion and frustration for our customers. It has been highly beneficial to clarify this issue and then to offer an affordable solution from a proven provider. Now that we’ve launched, the program has helped some of our customers avoid the cost of unexpected and expensive repairs. I would highly recommend partnering with HomeServe.” – Michael Hooker, Executive Director, Onondaga County Water Authority
