AZ Registrar of Contractors allows 2 years for implied warranties

Platinum Property Inspections advises AZ ROC allows 2 years for implied warranties for your Prescott homeWhen buying a home, there are certain implied warranties, among them the expectation that a home will be habitable and fit for the intended purpose. When construction defects are discovered during your Prescott home inspection, Platinum Property Inspections wants you to know what recourse you have and how long the Arizona Registrar of Contractors holds a home builder responsible for defects.

Over the past decade, new homes were built at an unparalleled pace due to lower interest rates. The speed with which homes were built gives rise to the question: How are those homes holding up?

Over 20% of the items found on recent inspections of previously owned homes were items the builder failed to properly complete, which leads to the next question: How long is the builder responsible for the defects of workmanship?

According to Arizona law, a homeowner can file a complaint against a home builder for up to two years after the close of escrow or actual occupancy, whichever comes first, for violations of any rule of the Registrar. This includes disregard of plans and specifications, building codes, etc.

Since there is a statute of limitations on filing a complaint, having a home inspection completed immediately after construction would provide evidence of defects to the home builder. And the sooner you are able to discover the defects, the sooner you can file your complaint and get them repaired by the builder.

If you’ve just purchased a new home, or if you’re currently having a home built, you have two years to hold your home builder responsible for workmanship. For your peace of mind, you owe it to yourself to have a professional home inspection performed.

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
