What is the scope of a builder warranty?

A builder’s warranty is insurance issued by the builder on a new structure that obligates them to fix structural deficiencies for five years from the date of handover. After being added as a provision in RERA, the word gained usage. Check out what it all entails.

There have been several reports in the past of homebuyers reporting structural concerns in a new home. Seepage, leakages, and moisture, among other things, are frequent indicators that a building’s structural integration is incorrect and that construction standards have not been met. As a result, many new house purchasers have chosen warranties that guarantee the replacement or restoration of certain aspects of the property. In response to mounting concerns such as these, many developers have begun to provide a guarantee known as a builder’s warranty, which covers not only the maintenance of basic services but also damages caused by building errors. A property buyer should be informed of the warranty’s coverage.
