Understanding Your Commercial Maintenance Obligations for Warranty Standards

As a commercial property owner, manager, and tenant you know that regular maintenance is essential for keeping your building in good nick and protecting your investment. But did you know that your maintenance obligations can also affect your warranty coverage? That’s right—failing to properly maintain your building can void your warranty, leaving you on the hook for costly repairs. That’s why it’s important to understand your commercial maintenance obligations for warranty standards.

What is a Warranty?

A warranty is a legal contract between the manufacturer of a product or service and the purchaser. It outlines the terms and conditions of the warranty, including what is covered, for how long, and what the purchaser’s obligations are. Warranties can be either express or implied.

Express warranties are those that are written and included in the purchase agreement. They may cover specific parts or components of the building, such as the roof, the HVAC system, or the plumbing.

Implied warranties are those that are not written but are implied by law. They may cover things like the fitness of the building for its intended purpose and the merchantability of the building.

Consequences of Failing to Meet Maintenance Obligations

If you fail to meet your maintenance obligations under a warranty, you may void your warranty. This means that you will not be covered for any repairs that are needed due to damage or wear and tear that could have been prevented with proper maintenance.

How to Meet Your Maintenance Obligations

The best way to meet your maintenance obligations is to develop a regular maintenance plan as guided by your manufacturer. By following your maintenance plan, you can help ensure that your building is well-maintained and that your warranty coverage is protected.
