Improving Quality and Accountability in Residential Construction
Discussion PaperMicroform - 1997
The purpose of this discussion paper is to raise some of the issues that need to be considered before the British Columbia government can act on improving consumer protection, accountability, and quality in housing construction; and to provide an opportunity for interested parties to comment on proposals to address those issues. Issues and proposals are presented under the following categories: buyer recourse for new homes; the provision of warranties on new housing construction; warranty standards and oversight; maintenance and after-sales service; consumer protection for manufactured housing, owner-built housing, and home renovations; builder registration and qualifications; enforcement, cost, and funding of warranty and builder registration proposals; and consumer awareness and assistance.
