Lofts at Fillmore Condominium Association v. Reliance Commercial Construction, Inc.
Arizona Supreme Court
190 P.3d 733 (2008)
Reliance Commercial Construction, Inc. (builder) (defendant) converted a real estate developer's (vendor's) building into condominiums, which the developer then sold to individual buyers. The buyers formed the Lofts at Fillmore Condominium Association, Inc. (plaintiff). When the buyers noticed various quality defects in their units, the association sued the builder for breaching its implied warranty of workmanship and habitability. The trial court granted the builder's motion for summary judgment on the grounds that there was no privity of contract between it and the buyers, whose only contract relationship was with the developer. The appellate court affirmed the verdict, and the association appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court.
