Why have your new home inspected in the 11th month after purchase?
In the first year of your home ownership the builder’s warranty is particularly important, as the builder has responsibility for a broader range of defects during the first 12 months after purchase.
An 11th Month Inspection can help you identify any potential issues in your home that should be repaired prior to the expiry of your new home warranty.
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
