Region of Peel program can cover the cost of some home repairs in Mississauga
While housing in Peel (Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon) is incredibly expensive—the average home price in the region hit $1,023,552 in February—a program does allow homeowners to get some help with necessary pipe repairs.
Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) recently announced that since partnering with the Region of Peel, local homeowners with SLWC service plans have saved over $1 million in repairs.
"Many of our region's homeowners were unaware of their responsibility when it came to fixing problems with the water and sewer lines that fall on their property. They would turn to Peel's public works department when an emergency arose and would understandably become discouraged and concerned about costs when they learned that the repair was their responsibility," said Nectar Tampacopoulos, Region of Peel, in a statement.
"By partnering with SLWC, we got a solution that not only educates our homeowners about their responsibility, but also offers them a smart way to prepare financially for an unexpected home emergency. The partnership has been a win for the Region of Peel and a win for our homeowners who have signed up for a plan"
SLWC says the no-deductible, affordable plans offer homeowners access to local, certified repair contractors.
Peel homeowners have access to repair plans that cover in-home plumbing emergencies, as well as needed repairs to or replacement of the water and sewer lines that fall on their property.
Plans start at $4.48 a month.
Since October 2016, SLWC-approved contractors have completed almost 3,000 repair jobs for Peel homeowners, including 1,149 jobs in the last 12 months.
