SB 800: California's Builders Right to Repair Bill

Senate Bill (SB) 800, the ‘Builders Right To Repair’ bill was signed into law September 20, 2002, and took effect for every living unit sold in California after January 1, 2003. The bill specifies the rights and requirements of a homeowner to bring a construction defect action, contains building standards and functionality requirements for new residential units, and gives a detailed pre-litigation procedure. SB 800 was developed as a compromise of various factions of the building and legal communities to address the problems of the home building industry. The 9,000 word bill states the intent of the legislature is to improve the procedure for the administration of civil justice in construction defect cases.
