Warranty Forms

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.

About dfconsultants

I have worked in the new home construction industry for 15 years as a Customer Care Manager. I identified a need in customer service which was not being addressed so I decided to start my own company and founded DF Consultants. We educate new home buyers in the After Sales Service process and procedures. Builders have also recognized the advantage of having DF Consultants on their team, so we work with them doing Quality Assurance Inspections (Pre-PDI's), right through to conducting professional PDI's with their purchasers. Our mission is to change the dynamics in the new home construction industry, to improve communcation between builders and their homeowners creating a strong and lasting relationship.
