Tidhar’s move: Developer to give a ten-year warranty on a new apartment

Tidhar Group announced that it will provide a 10-year warranty on new apartments it sells, even on areas with a required warranty period shorter than seven years. The warranty will apply to exterior wall sealing, flooring and cladding, front doors, insulation, electricity, and plumbing but not to smaller items such as intercoms.

Is this the move that will lead to increased sales? Tidhar Group announced today (Tuesday) that it will begin granting a 10-year inspection warranty to apartments sold by it. The move will accompany a campaign by actors Niv Sultan and Meir Schweitzer. Currently, the law requires an inspection period of 1 to 7 years (depending on the field) and an additional 3-year warranty period, in which the customer must prove that the contractor was negligent or did not correct the defects.

Tidhar’s offer includes a 10-year warranty, even in areas where the inspection period is shorter than seven years. The warranty is valid for the third party that purchased the apartment and veteran residents in urban renewal. The company said it negotiated with insurance companies to implement the move.

The responsibility relates to sealing exterior walls, flooring and cladding, front door doors, insulation, electricity, plumbing, and more—but not small things often associated with wear and tear, like intercoms. In addition, responsibility will be given only to projects in which the company serves as an entrepreneur, including Rothschild Tel Aviv and Bat Yam, and not to projects in which it serves as an execution contractor, except for a few small projects.
