The introductory sections of the Guide summarize key aspects of the legislation, and the bulk of the Guide catalogs issues commonly discovered in the first few years of the life of a home. The Guide indicates whether an issue can be defined as a defect under the legislation and explains the actions homeowners can expect warranty providers and builders to take to resolve those defects. The New Home Buyer Protection Office has produced this guide in order to ensure that homeowners, builders, and warranty providers alike clearly understand their rights and responsibilities under the terms of the New Home Buyer Protection Act.
The first version of the Construction Performance Guide for New Home Warranty in Alberta was made available on December 17, 2014. A revised version of the Guide was released on September 1, 2015.
