Service contracts are agreements to perform the repair, replacement or maintenance of any kind of property. Common areas where service contracts are used include motor vehicles, home appliances, and residential systems such as plumbing or heating and cooling systems.
Litigation arising out of service contract disputes can take the form of a breach of contract claim ; however, there are also specific issues associated with service contracts that you should be aware of, the most important being the warranty provision.
A warranty provision offers protection that the services you agree to pay for will be free of defects. A well drafted service contract will clearly define:
- Types of defects covered
- Duration of the warranty
- Limitations of the warranty
- Corrective actions and remedies for violation of the warranty
