Extraordinary Situations

Another exception to the time periods set out in the Statutory Warranty Process is in the case of an extraordinary situation. There are two types of extraordinary situations, either of which could cause your builder to seek an extension of the time periods:

  1. An industry or regional event that affects a segment of the construction industry or region of the province (such as labour, trade or materials shortages, strikes or other labour disputes, and severe weather or other acts of nature).
  2. Special circumstances affecting a particular builder or home, such as the special order of a part that will take more time to arrive than the Statutory Warranty Process time periods allow.​

If your builder applies to Tarion for this type of extension on any of your outstanding items, they will notify you in writing. If the extension is granted, we will set a new time period and advise you.
