Is your home covered by the 2-5-10 New Home Warranty Program? If so, it’s up to you to document all deficiencies in writing and report same to the builder, H.P.O. (Homeowner Protection Office) and the Warranty-Provider, before those critical days run out.

Most homeowners can easily identify the cosmetic deficiencies. It takes a professional who is familiar with all the codes to find the rest. The best time to re-inspect is after you have been living in it but prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Typical coverage under the New Home Warranty Program is as follows:

  • Detached homes & Strata properties – 1 year for the interior
  • Construction defects and BC Building Code violations – 2 years
  • Water leakage (basement, roof, exterior walls, windows, and doors) – 5 years
  • Major structural defects  – 10 years
