My New Home is a Lemon

By Christopher Combs | November 9, 2018

Question: We bought a new home two years ago in West Phoenix in the flight path of Sky Harbor Airport. We have had significant electrical and plumbing problems since the first day that we purchased our new home. Our homebuilder now refuses to do anything, and said that our one-year home builder’s warranty has expired. The inspector from the Registrar of Contractor’s office was very nice, but the mechanical and electrical problems still remain. We have given up on all of the meetings and paperwork! My husband is a painting contractor, and he now wants to paint a large lemon on our roof that would be seen by every passenger flying into Sky Harbor Airport.

30th Anniversary of the Arizona Association of REALTORS® (“AAR”) Legal Hotline!

By Christopher Combs | October 30, 2018

The AAR Legal Hotline (“Hotline”) had its first telephone call from a REALTOR® thirty years ago. The Hotline had been established by an AAR committee with the assistance of our law firm. From 1988 until 2012 our law firm responded to more than 40,000 Hotline calls from AAR members (primarily Designated Brokers) with access to the Hotline.  REALTORS® throughout Arizona then had the opportunity to telephone a real estate lawyer with a question about a real estate legal issue. Within 24 hours the REALTOR® would then be sent a written answer. Although there was an initial concern in establishing the AAR Legal Hotline that AAR would be subject to lawsuits, there were never any lawsuits against AAR during that period of time. After the success of the Hotline in Arizona, our law firm assisted other states like Colorado and Minnesota in developing their legal Hotline programs. Happy Anniversary to the Hotline!
