Your New Home Warranty Coverage
We understand that buying a home is an important decision for you and your family. It’s a huge investment and you want to make sure it’s protected. That’s why every home that Kirkland Homes builds carries a comprehensive warranty through the Alberta New Home Warranty Program (ANHWP).
Since Kirkland’s inception in 2009, we’ve been a proud member of the ANHWP. They are Alberta’s largest home warranty provider and have stringent standards for builder membership. ANHWP also works towards improving homebuilder performance, professionalism, responsibility and accountability – the cornerstones of every successful relationship between homebuilders and their customers.
While Kirkland Homes’ customers have always had ANHWP coverage, it wasn’t until February 2014 – when the Alberta government enacted The New Home Buyer Protection Act – that all new homebuyers were required to receive warranty protection from their homebuilder. According to this legislation:
- Every homebuilder must provide proof of warranty coverage to obtain Alberta building permits.
- A government-managed registry will provide public access to key dates and specific information about new home warranties.
- At a minimum, the warranty on each new home whose building permit application was submitted after February 1, 2014, will provide “1-2-5-10” coverage.
This means that any home you purchase from Kirkland Homes includes mandatory warranty coverage of one year for labour and materials, two years for delivery and distribution systems, five years for building envelope protection and 10 years for major structural components (“1-2-5-10” coverage).
