Re-Blog From AEC Forensics

On Friday, October 15, 2010, Veritext will be hosting a seminar in San Diego entitled, An Update on SB800.
SB800 is California’s “Right to Repair” law and was incorporated into the Civil Code under §895§896-897, §910-938 and §941-945.5. The legislation was signed into law on September 20, 2002 and applies to individual residential units (whether single-family or as part of a multi-family development) sold after January 1, 2003. The law defines specific construction defects, establishes procedures for homeowners to file claims regarding those defects, and provides builders an opportunity to repair those defects. The intent of the law was to provide pre-litigation procedures for addressing claims of defective construction that were taking months and sometimes years to resolve through the typical course of litigation.
