Legal Q&A: Are home builders required to provide a one-year warranty on new construction?

QUESTION: I represent a builder who recently completed construction of a spec home on a lot owned by the builder. I listed the home in the MLS and received an offer to purchase from a local agent. In the offer, the buyer’s agent attached her firm’s “Supplemental Provisions Addendum” which included a paragraph relating to new construction.
