Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

             (1)      Serve on the construction professional a written notice describing the alleged construction defect; and
             (2)      Allow the construction professional, within thirty days after service of the notice, to inspect the alleged construction defect and serve on the home owner a written offer to repair the construction defect or compensate the owner by monetary payment.
     The home owner may not commence an action against the construction professional for a construction defect until thirty days after the notice is served on the construction professional or until the construction professional refuses to remedy the alleged construction defect, whichever occurs first. Upon service of the notice, the statute of limitations set forth in chapter 15-2A is suspended for the thirty-day period or until the refusal, whichever occurs first. If the home owner commences an action against the construction professional without complying with the requirements of this section, the action shall be stayed until the home owner has complied with such requirements. No home owner is required to serve another written notice for any additional defects discovered after the home owner has served an initial written notice of a construction defect pursuant to this section. The provisions of this section do not apply to the initiation of a counterclaim or cross-claim in any action that is already properly commenced.
