New Home Warranty Claims and Construction Warranty Claims
The Homeowner Protection Act provides important protection for homeowners. Enacted in 1998 after the “leaky condo” crisis, the Act establishes a 2-5-10 warranty for new homes and licensing requirements for builders.
The 2-5-10 warranty created by the Homeowner Protection Act provides the following coverage:
- 2 years for defects in materials and labour
- 5 years for building envelope defects
- 10 years for structural defects
Partner and founder John Mendes oversees our construction defect practice. We assist strata corporations and homeowners with claims against 2-5-10 warranty providers under the Homeowner Protection Act. We also enforce claims against developers, consultants, contractors, municipalities and other parties involved in the construction of defective condominiums and homes.
