When making the biggest purchase of your life, it’s important to ensure it’s protected. That’s why the government passed the “New Home Buyer Protection Act” in 2014, making it mandatory for all builders in Alberta to provide home warranty coverage for all new homes built within the province. This new Act encourages higher quality and building practices to ensure your home’s longevity.
What does the mandatory coverage period look like?
It is the builder’s responsibility for making sure the new house is built to the standards outlined in Alberta’s Building Code. The government has mandated that all new homes in Alberta will provide coverage for minimum periods of 1 year, 2 years, 5 years and 10 years.
