Implied Warranties Apply to Improvements that Provide Essential Services

Maronda Homes, Inc. v. Lakeview Reserve, SC10-2292 (Fla. July 11, 2013):

The Florida Supreme Court agreed with the Fifth District that the law of implied warranties of fitness and merchantability apply to improvements that provide essential services to the habitability of a residence. Even though the infrastructure improvements in a subdivision may not be physically attached to the homes, many component parts provide essential services that directly affect the habitability of the homes.
