FAQ Warranty on new homes in Virginia

NEW CONSTRUCTION BUILDER WARRANTY PRIMER New home construction builder warranties arise either by implication under Virginia law or by an express provision in the contract between the builder and the buyer.   Va. Code § 55 ‐70.1 implies a warranty in most new home sales regardless whether the contract provides a warranty. Under this statute, a builder warrants for one year that its product is free of structural defects, is constructed in a workmanlike manner, and is fit for habitation. Foundations are warranted for five years.  Of course, the contract may state a better warranty. It also may waive the implied warranty if done in the manner prescribed by the statute. I would strongly caution an agent against being a party to a contract where a buyer waived all builder warranties.
