The Nebraska Court of Appeals recently found that when a contractor provides an owner with an express warranty to repair defects in a project, the four-year statute of limitations for breach of either that express warranty, or for the implied warranty of workmanlike performance, does not commence running until the end of the warranty period. See James Adams v. Manchester Park, L.L.C. and Southfork Homes, Inc., 22 Neb. App. 525, 885 N.W.2d 819 (Neb. Ct. App. 2014). The contractor involved in the decision has petitioned the Nebraska Supreme Court for further review of the case. However, if not altered by the Nebraska Supreme Court, Adams would mean that the statute of limitations for construction breach-of-warranty claims does not begin to run at substantial completion, but instead at the end of any contractually agreed warranty period. Contractors therefore will want to watch closely the Nebraska Supreme Court’s decision with regard to the Adams case.
