Protect Colorado Homeowner’s Rights.
Some homebuilders, developers and elected officials are trying to weaken laws to protect homeowners seeking repairs from bad building practices – most recently Lakewood’s proposed Ordinance 21 – even though Colorado already has some of the most builder-friendly laws in the country.
The truth is that Colorado’s construction defects don’t “cause” lawsuits—shoddy construction and bad workmanship do. And when homeowners face water damage, leaky roofs, bad foundations, mold, drainage problems and other impacts from shoddy construction, they also face serious financial risks and disruption to their lives.
We all support good building design, quality workmanship, sound construction practices and a commitment to quality. Weakening homeowners’ legal rights to seek repairs is unfair, puts hardworking Coloradans at risk, and does not hold homebuilders accountable if their product is defective.
