Amend s.1(1) of the Defective Premises Act 1972 to reflect what was intended
background
Purchasers of defective new dwellings are faced with considerable financial difficulties adversely impacting on their marriages and lives when they discover the purchases are defective. House-builders do not want to know having taken their money. Law Comm 40 (1970) is clear as to what was intended.
additional details
It is widely accepted, the statute the product of Law Comm 40 (1970) ( the 1972 Act) has been wrongly interpreted by Court of Appeal etc. Builders are sidestepping it using contract terms).This is a significant hurdle to ordinary people seeking legal redress in E&W, who have, through no fault of their own, been burdened with defective new properties that they are unable to sell at full value, without informing prospective purchasers of defects which often results in negative equity situations, misery, etc.
