Description 1 Year Builder Warranty Form

Warranties may be either express or implied. Express warranties are created by affirmative acts of the seller that are an affirmation of fact or promise made by the seller which relates to the goods and becomes part of the basis of the bargain. Express warranties can be created when the seller describes the goods or furnishes samples. Express warranties create strict liability for the seller, so that negligence need not be proven. This agreement constitutes express warranties by the builder. This form is a generic example that may be referred to when preparing such a form for your particular state. It is for illustrative purposes only. Local laws should be consulted to determine any specific requirements for such a form in a particular jurisdiction.

What is a Home Builder's Warranty Agreement?

When concluding contracts, the client should be confident that the manufacturer or seller they've hired will provide high-quality products and perform high-quality work. In the construction industry, client confidence becomes even more critical as the high standards expected of contractors directly impact safety. In such situations, warranty contracts come in handy.

A construction warranty is a legal document in which the contractor provides a covenant that guarantees to the client (homeowner) that they will perform all works following building codes and standards and project specifications without flaws or defects. Breaching such an agreement results in monetary recovery of related damages and costs for material replacement or reparation works to be carried out at the contractor's expense.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a US federal law enacted in 1975, regulates warranty contracts. It states that while not all products and services require written guarantees, if parties conclude one, then such an agreement must comply with the Act. This law aims to prevent manufacturers from misleading clients with inappropriate and unfairly made disclaimers on the guarantees.

Types of warranties

There are two general types of contractor warranty agreements:

  • Express warranty is a written or verbal guarantee from the seller that the purchased product is of a certain quality and that the seller can replace or repair it if there are any defects.
  • Implied warranty is a guarantee that the purchased product operates as it should.

Builders' warranties operate under another classification because of industry specifics:

  • Time-based warranty is the contractor's promise to provide a particular thing in a defined condition at a specified time (for example, to guarantee the construction is waterproof for a certain number of years).
  • General warranty is a guarantee to perform defined works according to the project blueprints and specifications without a time reference.
