The Statutory Warranty Process involves three parties: the homeowner, the builder and Tarion. The roles and responsibilities of each party are outlined below.
There are a few things you must do to protect your home’s statutory warranty. Doing so will help ensure that you have a successful new home experience – failing to do so could put your home’s statutory warranty in jeopardy.
Attend the Pre-Delivery Inspection (“PDI”). This is your chance to view your home with your builder and assess its condition before you take possession. It is essential that you note any deficiencies including incomplete, damaged or missing items on the PDI Form provided by your builder. This is also an opportunity to learn how to operate your home’s systems, including heating, electrical, plumbing and air conditioning.
For information about which construction deficiencies are and are not covered by the statutory warranty, please see the
