One of the recent legislative successes includes reducing the exposure period for a building or remodeling claim from ten to seven years.
This reduction will:
• Decrease burdens and costs associated with investigating factual allegations from the distant past
• Promote fairness to builders who must defend themselves from such claims
• Protect property owners by providing ample time to bring an action against a builder
Working in conjunction with the Wisconsin Civil Justice Council (WCJC), we advocated for this common-sense change to improve the legal climate and promote affordable housing in Wisconsin.
