BILL
To

Prevent Evasion of Building Regulations​

The people of Democracy Craft, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

1 - Short Title and Enactment
(1) This Act may be cited as the “Regulation Enforcement Act”.
(2) This Act shall be enacted immediately upon its signage.
(3) Authored by Representative 218218Consumer

2 - Reasons for Proposal
Currently, property owners are able to evade regulations enforced by Building Inspectors through reselling plots: this resets the time limit for repairing eyesores, fixing amenity requirements, or other violations of regulations. Such evasions must be prevented.

3 - Regulation Evasion
(1) When a plot has been reported for eviction, the report will remain extant until it is resolved or evicted. Transferring ownership of the plot in question will not have a bearing on the date of eviction, unless otherwise provided by the relevant Department.
(2) If plot ownership is transferred while there is an active eviction report on the plot, the original owner has a duty to disclose the report to the buyer or recipient of the plot. Failure to do so will result in the original owner being guilty of failure to disclose.

4 - Duty of Disclosure
(1) Failure to Disclose
Failure of a party to provide the other parties with all legally required information and or documents which are relevant to a property.
Per Offence: Cost of damages incurred by the recipient as a result of the failure to disclose.
(a) A plea of ignorance to a report is not an admissible defence to failure to disclose.
