Why It's Important to Choose a Registered Home Builder Ontario

If you are planning on building a custom home in Ontario, it is important that you choose a registered home builder. Choosing a registered home builder gives you several advantages that you don't want to miss out on including:

1.You Get a Legally Built Home

You will get a new home warranty from a registered home builder

Only homes that are constructed by a registered home builder in Ontario are considered legally built homes. Any homes built by non-registered builders or builders whose registration has expired are considered illegal in Ontario. According to an article inabilities The Star Tarion, the organization that enforces Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act, investigated 241 illegal building cases and made 105 convictions resulting in $330,000 in fines as well as 2 jail sentences in 2015 alone.

To find out if the builder you are considered is currently registered to legally build you a home, consult the Ontario Home Builders' Directory Enter the builder's name in the search box and press enter. You will be given a listing of builders that match that name, their umbrella group if they belong to one, the location they work in, their registration number, and their registration status (whether it is current or has expired).

2.You Get a New Home Warranty

A new home warranty ensures that your home is guaranteed to be free of major structural defects

Under the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act (ONHWP Act), a builder and vendor of a new home has to provide you with a warranty that ensures that your home:

  • Was constructed in a workmanlike manner and is free from defects in material
  • Is fit to live in
  • Is constructed according to the Ontario Building Code
  • Is free of major structural defects as defined by the regulations of the ONHWP Act
  • Includes other warranties that are prescribed by the regulations.

3.Your New Home Warranty Is Backed Up by Tarion

The government of Ontario has appointed Tarion, an independent, non-profit corporation, to be responsible for administering the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act. As part of their duties under the Act, Tarion:
