Construction Law Authority / Legislation  / HB 1013 signed by Governor Scott

HB 1013 signed by Governor Scott

Governor Scott signed HB 1013 into law late last week.  The legislation will take effect on July 1, 2012, and attempts to wipe out all common law implied warranties, including for pending litigation.  I think there are significant constitutional issues as applied to pending claims. We may find out quickly as the Lakeview v. Maronda case is still pending before the Supreme Court.  The Court may be able to address the scope of the warranty and also the constitutionality issue at one time. It will be an interesting decision but may be one of limited value going forward.
