Home Owner Warranty Law

Purchasers of new homes and condominiums often find serious problems with windows, doors, flashing, HVAC, plumbing, sound transmission, waterproofing, soil preparation, grading, roof slopes, balconies, exterior cladding, crawl spaces, attics and ventilation.  Home builders often try to avoid their obligations to make expensive repairs necessary to correct their mistakes.  Home repair, expansion and renovation contractors often fail to honor their warranties.

Homeowners and condominium associations need to act promptly as soon as any potential significant defect is detected.  Seemingly small visible leaks and cracks may be symptoms of serious underlying problems with the building envelope, site work or other major structural defects.  It is important to have an evaluation by a construction professional to determine the extent of the problem.

It can be equally important to consult with an experienced attorney to identify your rights and remedies. New home and new condominium warranties may be required by statute, expanded by contract, or implied depending on state and local laws.  Some remedies are available only during the first years after purchase.  Others are available within a limited time after discovery of the defects – which can occur many years after purchase.  Available remedies are often confusing, and the applicable rules require interpretation by an experienced lawyer.

The lawyers at DC Consumer Law Group have decades of experience advising consumers about their rights.  The first consultation is free and we accept some cases on a contingent or partially contingent basis.
