After people buy a house or condo from a builder, they sometimes forget that they have Tarion forms that they must keep track of. These forms protect the homeowner by ensuring that any warranted items noted on them are completed by the builder in the time frame set out by Tarion.
Homeowners get two chances in the first year to fill out the forms. The first opportunity is at the 30 Day mark and once again at the year end anniversary of your closing date for free-hold homes, and the occupancy date for condominiums. If the deadline for the forms comes and goes without any contact from the homeowner, as far as Tarion is concerned the items have been resolved. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to make sure that they stay on top of these forms or they will lose the right to take any unresolved issues back to Tarion, until the next opportunity.
This is why I stress day after day, that getting educated about the procedures of buying a home from a builder is so important, and that is why I started DF Consultants.
