This act may be cited as the "Homeowners' Bill of Rights."Section 2. Purpose and intentThe People of the State of Arizona hereby make the following findings and declare their purpose in enacting this Act is as follows:Arizona's expanding population needs housing. This should be good housing, using careful design and high-quality construction materials and techniques. We want our houses to look good and last for generations to come. Arizona cannot afford to have vast tracts of poorly-made houses that become "insta-slums". Good houses, on the other hand, keep their value economically and help prevent neighborhood decay.Arizona homeowners are also entitled to be protected from sharp home sales practices. There are too many instances of homeowners being pushed into houses and mortgages that they cannot afford, with disastrous consequences that are now well known. They have also been victimized by bait-and-switch tactics, deceptive model homes, hidden charges and finance and insurance schemes riddled with conflicts of interest.Current law is inadequate to deal with these problems. In fact, the Legislature has enacted laws that served to unduly protect home builders at the expense of home owners. It has become very difficult for homeowners to take effective legal action to correct even the most blatant design and construction defects.This Homeowners' Bill of Rights is a law by homeowners for homeowners. It will give homeowners the ability to get defective homes fixed, to have their homes when built match what they were led to expect and to better understand financing and insurance schemes that are offered to them.Section 3. Title 12, Chapter 8, Article 14, Arizona Revised Statutes, is amended by striking certain portions thereof (indicated by strikethroughs) and adding certain other portions (indicated by underlining)
