Thank you for considering Travelers Canada as your warranty provider. If you would like to apply to become a registered builder and be eligible for the Travelers Canada's home warranty program, please contact one of our underwriters at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Builder Application.
Travelers Canada will issue a Schedule D: Warranty Commencement Date Certificate a few months after enrollment. This document should be signed by the builder and homeowner during the final walkthrough. The builder then forwards the document to Travelers Canada for processing. The form can be sent by mail, fax or emailed to email@example.com. We use this document to determine the commencement date of the policy. Once we receive the signed certificate, we create a homeowner policy package that is mailed directly to the homeowner.
Duplicate or revised forms can be sent out either via mail or electronically. Please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and your request will be processed. Although the Schedule D is available in a hard copy triplicate form, this is purely for ease of providing duplicate copies for both the homeowner, Builder and us at Travelers Canada. Photocopies or email copies of Schedule D’s are also accepted.
It is critical to ensure that the homeowner receives a maintenance manual as it will allow them to properly maintain their new home and its components in a timely fashion. Travelers Canada has created a maintenance manual template which can be found here.
