515A.4-114 STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR WARRANTIES.
(a) A judicial proceeding for breach of any obligation arising under section
must be commenced within six years after the cause of action accrues, but the parties
may reduce the period of limitation to not less than two years. With respect to a unit which may
be occupied for residential use, an agreement to reduce the period of limitation shall be evidenced
by a separate instrument executed by the purchaser.
(b) Subject to subsection (c), a cause of action under section
regardless of the purchaser's lack of knowledge of the breach, accrues:
(1) as to a unit, when the purchaser to whom the warranty is first made enters into possession
after a conveyance of a possessory interest if a possessory interest is conveyed or otherwise at the
time of acceptance of the instrument of conveyance if a nonpossessory interest was conveyed; and
(2) as to each common element, the later of (i) the time the common element is completed,
(ii) the time the first unit in the condominium is conveyed to a bona fide purchaser, or (iii) as to
a common element within any additional real estate or portion thereof the time the first unit
therein is conveyed to a bona fide purchaser.
(c) If a warranty under section
explicitly extends to future
performance or duration of any improvement or component of the condominium, the cause of
action accrues at the time the breach is discovered or at the end of the period for which the
warranty explicitly extends, whichever is earlier.
