MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 18, 2019 04:29 PM
From: Representative John T. Galloway
To: All House members
Subject: New Home Construction Consumer Protection Act
 
Constructing a new home can be a dream come true for families, but it can be a challenging experience. From selecting a contractor through the entire construction process, homebuilding is filled with uncertainty. Disasters can happen even under the best of circumstances.

The New Home Construction Consumer Protection Act offers safeguards for both consumers and contractors during the construction process. Under this bill, home builders would be required to register with the Attorney General’s office and use standardized home construction contracts. In addition, the bill creates the Home Builder Guaranty Fund, which would be used to compensate homeowners for losses resulting from contract violations.

No family should have their dreams of a new home turn into a nightmare. No contractor should have their reputation ruined by events beyond their control. Please join me in this effort to support Pennsylvania’s homeowners and small businesses.



Introduced as HB879
