HB 17-1169: Giving Construction Professionals the Right to Cure Alleged Defects

On February 6, 2017, Rep. Timothy Leonard and Sen. Jack Tate introduced HB 17-1169, “Concerning a Construction Professional’s Statutory Right to Repair under the ‘Construction Defect Action Reform Act’.”

The bill clarifies that a construction professional has the right to receive notice from a prospective claimant concerning an alleged construction defect; to inspect the property; and then to elect to either repair the defect or tender an offer of settlement before the claimant can file a lawsuit seeking damages.

The bill was introduced in the House and assigned to the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee. It is scheduled to be heard in committee on March 1, 2017, at 1:30 p.m.
