    ... by a wealth of evidence. Nevertheless, of one fact we can be certainówith the booming resurgence of construction in Florida, and particularly in South Florida, the proposed legislation would shake-up construction defect litigation for years to come.

    Thanks Brian. I was not aware of the article. I knew there was a bill to change it. Good post for all those doing 1 year warrantee inspections and new construction in Florida. As the 558 Notice is required to even get a contractor to correct something.

    Ditto Jeff's reply.

    Additionally, no home inspector who does new construction inspections, new home walkthrough, during the first year's warranty, or even afterward can claim that their inspection IS NOT code as everything the home inspector points out must now have a code reference (as it should have been in the past, and is what Jeff, myself, and others did in the past), or have a reference to the plans, etc., which is ONE MORE REASON that the client REQUIRES a copy of the complete permit set of approved plans (with revisions) for their house.

    If you are doing a new home walkthrough inspection and are claiming it is a "cosmetic" issue inspection - you are doing your client a DISSERVICE.
