Be Careful with a Builder’s Warranty

The Terms might not be honored Industrial contractors

Consumers don’t always buy the home of their dreams. They sometimes will build it instead. This is a fantastic opportunity to have a house designed to meet personal specifications and many people want to do it. A builders warranty is a document provided by the contractor of the new house. It allows for certain defects in construction to be corrected by the builder within a given time period. However, the devil can be in the details. The builders warranty may not be ironclad. A dispute may arise and the services of an attorney offered in a group legal plan could be necessary.

The Builder May Get Stubborn

Any construction defects discovered require a homeowner to immediately alert the construction contractor. An ethical contractor will immediately abide by the provisions of the warranty. Unfortunately, there are others who will not. They may refuse to do any corrections and claim that the warranty does not cover certain defects. Such contractors rely on people not being able to collect all the paperwork to contest. Group legal services ought to include help with a warranty. An attorney should be available to help a group legal plan member interpret the warranty and examine the paperwork to find out what can be done. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has warranty help as one of its group legal services benefits.

Working through the Paperwork

An attorney’s advice is worth its weight in gold in these situations. This legal professional will look at the warranty and be able to explain what exactly is covered. A good attorney can also make recommendations as to what the homeowner can do to persuade the contractor to live up to the warranty terms. A comprehensive group legal plan includes correspondence and telephone calls made by the attorney on behalf of the plan member. That is a Countrywide legal benefit.
