Buyer Beware: New Home Construction in Pennsylvania

On Friday, May 10, Senator Katie Muth, Chair of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee, will host a policy hearing with co-hosts Senator Nikil Saval and Senator Wayne Fontana highlighting the need for enhanced consumer protections and increased regulations for new home construction in Pennsylvania. This hearing will focus on critical issues such as the enforcement of existing regulations, laws, municipal and construction codes; the need for improvements with home and code enforcement inspection process and certification; the oversight authority and responsibilities of local and state government entities; examples of deceptive tactics used by corporate, multi-state homebuilders; the need for enhanced warranties and recourse for the homebuyer. This hearing aims to ensure that Pennsylvania’s regulatory framework supports a housing market that is fair, equitable, and also prioritizes safety, quality, and consumer protections over corporate profit.

This hearing will be at the Phoenixville Borough Building (351 Bridge Street, Phoenixville, PA 19460) with a virtual option.
