If you want some idea of the track record of local Kingston builders, and much more, the website below is a good starting point for anyone contemplating the purchase of a new home in Ontario.
It’s the website of the Tarion Warranty Corporation, which is responsible for administering Ontario’s New Home Warranties Plan Act. The province’s home-building industry is heavily regulated, and builders must be registered.
However, the home builders industry carries significant clout with the provincial government, and Tarion is designed more to serve the needs of builders than consumers.
Coverage under the Act includes deposit protection, protection against defects in work and materials, protection against unauthorized substitutions, and protection against delayed closings or delayed occupancies without proper notice.
But still, your best insurance is finding a good builder, so do your homework :-)
