90 Days?

The warranty is limited to 90 days from the date of the inspection, or 22 days from closing whichever is greater. Most often a buyer takes possession of a home 30-60 days from the date of the inspection, leaving 30-60 days remaining of this warranty rather than 90 days from possession which was our first assumption when hearing of this warranty.
