How HB 879 Protects Homeowners in Pennsylvania
During the Pennsylvania House’s Regular Session 2021-2022, HB 879 established new protections for homeowners who purchase residences with defects and ensures they have all the necessary information before purchasing their new home. This bill mandates that all home builders are registered with the office of the state’s Attorney General every couple of years.
These construction professionals must also include specific language in purchase contractions, including arbitration clauses, and inform consumers in writing of any defect they find within three months. The home builder has the legal obligation to inform owners of a construction defect for 30 years after completion of the building.
The requirements in HB 879 are consistent with the International Residential Code (IRC) and the Uniform Construction Code (UCC), which consolidates protections for homebuyers.
Contractors must have Commercial General Liability coverage although they do not need an endorsement for defective workmanship.
