Often when homeowners decide to sell their home they want to make repairs to it and fix it up before putting it on the market. One of the improvements frequently made by homeowners is a new roof. Not only will a new roof look better but it will also give prospective buyers a more secure feeling knowing they are purchasing a home that has a new roof and a warranty to go with the new roof. However, it’s very important for the prospective buyer to read the warranty carefully. While many roof warranties can be transferred to the buyer some require action by the buyer to transfer the warranty. In many cases the buyer only has 30 days after purchasing the home to complete the necessary paperwork or the warranty will not transfer.
