Effective December 1, 2017, all residential builders are required to have a Builder Licence in order to construct new homes in the province of Alberta. Consumers can search the Builder Registry to see if a builder is in good standing, the persons in control and builder activity. Knowing there is a rigorous process to become a licensed builder, as well as public accountability and transparency, this provides peace of mind for consumers.
This licence has been established to protect consumers when a contractor accepts money before the work is done. There is a cooling off period, a "Buyer's Right To Cancel" clause written into contracts as well as deposit protection via General Surety Bonds. Your deposit is protected in the event that your builder is unable to start or complete the project. Once again, there is a rigorous vetting process of background checks and contract reviews in order to qualify for a Prepaid Contractor Licence in the province of Alberta.
“Retail Home Sales Business means the business of selling or the offering for sale of manufactured homes, mobile homes or package homes, or any of the units or materials constituting those homes, to an individual for use as a residence.”
This licence ensures that consumers have the right contract in place. There are strict guidelines for how contracts are written with respect to modular, manufactured or packaged homes. Notable terms include: Total Payable by Buyer, Payment Schedule, Home Manufacturer, Completion Date, Delivery Date, etc. Legislation is in effect that makes sure you receive a Serial Number and certification Label from the manufacturer of record.
Modworks Inc. carries comprehensive Commercial General Liability insurance. This type of insurance typically covers: Damage to your property, injury on your property, and coverage for employees that cause injury or damage to your property. It is vital that you insure the dwelling while it is being built as this is not covered under a homeowner's or CGL policy.
During the build process, it is vital that your project is protected via Course of Construction insurance. Modworks Inc. provides excellent coverage for the following ocurances: Fire and/or explosion, lighting strikes, hail damage, theft, vandalism, and vehicles or aircraft crashing into the structure.
