MEXICO CITY – Raising the concerns over warranty of new homes in New Mexico, homebuilders demands the inclusion of 2-10 homebuyers warranties. The motive of this move is to give a guarantee for homeowners on various grounds on new homes. Currently, there is no guarantee for new homes in the state of New Mexico, and if the legislation proposed by the New Mexico Home Builders Association get approved by the governor of the state.

Currently, home builders and constructors face legal actions if there is any defect discovered in the new homes. After the passing of this legislation, the matter will only be left between customers and builders instead of involving courts in such matters. The Home Warranty Act is presented in House Bill 632 and it is sponsored by Rep. Patricio Ruiloba, D-Albuquerque. It was introduced on Feb. 14 and sent to the House Commerce & Economic Development Committee.

The proposed bill contains warranty in three components and would be known as “2-10 warranty.” And once it is approved, this would come under the jurisdiction of the New Mexico Superintendent of Insurance. The third party home construction warranty companies would provide the warranties and it would be paid for by builders without charging any additional cost to homeowners. New Jersey Home Warranty is one example among the 10 states which has already enacted this law.

Gary W. Moselle, a California attorney specializing in the state-specific construction contacts said that this would be a unique act to be implemented among the 50 states. This would not charge any additional amount to homeowners. Also, it would be possible to address construction deficiencies more appropriately. After this act, builders will get the right to inspect the shortcomings and defects in the construction work.
