New Home Buyer Protection Act (NHBPA)
The NHBPA came into force on February 1, 2014. As of that date, all new homes in Alberta must be built with a home warranty in place. The Act applies only to new homes constructed under a building permit and states that the proposed new home has been registered with the Registrar, and (a) has the required home warranty coverage (b) will be built by an owner builder who has a valid authorization, or (c) is otherwise exempted from having the required home warrant coverage.
More information about the new warranty standards and warranty providers in Alberta is available at: http://www.homewarranty.alberta.ca
