The Ten Year Anniversary of SB 800
“Mission Accomplished or Missed Opportunity”
By Robert Miller, Jan A Gruen, Lance B. Smith, Conor A. Meyers, and Matthew R. Schoech
In an effort to grapple with widespread complaints of an epidemic of construction defect lawsuits, on September 20, 2002, California enacted Senate Bill 800, codified as Title 7 of Part 2 of Division 2 of the California Civil Code. The Act was a comprehensive statutory scheme enacted in response to a perceived crisis of runaway construction defect claims in the California homebuilding industry. At the time, many observers believed the mounting volume and intensity of such litigation caused rampant increases in insurance premiums for contractors and builders, was a deterrent to new home construction, and generally served as a drag on the California Economy.
