Sunset Associates v. Strang
A failure to furnish a builder with timely notice about alleged defects can violate a warranty. The defendant, Jessica Strang, decided to construct a modular residence. Madison Modular LLC sold the home to the defendant. The plaintiff, Sunset Associates LLC, placed the modular home on the foundation and filed a complaint to foreclose a $2,500 mechanic's lien. Previously, the court awarded Strang $80,000, plus attorneys' fees of $26,667, against ProBuilt Homes, which constructed the home. On reconsideration, the court found that the warranty was not valid, because ProBuilt Homes did not receive notice of the alleged defects timely. The court amended its decision and awarded judgment to ProBuilt Homes. On reconsideration, the court awarded Strang $80,000 against Madison Modular LLC and Sunset Associates LLC.
